Private Tour




Containing arid areas, Iran is well-known for its breathtaking deserts among travelers from different parts of the world. Also, spending a night in the central desert of the country is recommended as a must-do while traveling to Iran. Maranjab Desert, located in the Silk Road is one of the best places to experience both the desert and overnight stay in the old Maranjab caravanserai, one of the many caravanserais built during Safavid dynasty.

Picking you up from your location in Kashan, we will drive to the heart of the desert on a dirt road for about an hour. After seeing the Salt Lake, we will drive to the caravanserai and spend the night in the middle of nowhere, in a way people used to do hundreds of years ago. The clear starry night of the desert will be one of the most amazing experiences of your Iran tour.

The next day is an opportunity to enjoy the sandhills of Maranjab Desert and do activities like camel riding, off-roading and quad biking. You can also relax in the silence of the desert and take photos which will be great remembrances of your Iranian desert tour.

Maranjab desert tour

One of the best deserts in Iran by far. amazing scenery for photoshopping and enjoying nature, also some desert outdoor activities were available which it was not my thing. I did explore as much as possible till the guide put a time to get back to base.

Maranjab desert

I loved the caravanserai vibes. some locals played music with an instrument (which I really haven't seen before). It somehow looks like Hollywood movie like Alibaba. Really smart decision to taking this tour. short, cheap and amazing experience for me and my husband.
