Private Tour




Desert tours and spending under the starry sky of the central desert of Iran, is among those unique lovely experiences of your trip to this ancient beautiful country. During this desert tour, we will pass through Varzaneh (located at a distance of about 100 km from Isfahan). There’s the possibility of experiencing all the desert activities along with an overnight stay in a local guesthouse.

Located in the southeast of Isfahan, Varzaneh is an oasis in the middle of a quiet, flat desert. Close to Salt Lake, Gavkhooni Wetland and amazing sand dunes, you have the chance to enjoy the breathtaking view of the sunset while on this tour. Due to the closeness to the wetland, there are various kinds of plants in the area and it’s home to some animal species like jackal, sand fox, desert cat, different types of scorpions, rabbits, falcon and much more.

It’s also possible to go camel riding, sandboarding, off-road driving and quad motorbiking depending on your interest. However, the desert sky is what everyone wishes to see while on this tour and we will have both the sunset and sunrise landscape along with the night sky.


  • Amazing landscapes of the sand dunes
  • Visiting the Salk Lake
  • Seeing the Gavkhooni Wetland with flora and fauna in its neighborhood
  • Stargazing under the night sky of the desert

Best Iran desert

Most thrilling experience in Iran was Evening desert. Our driver Mr. Hamid was very friendly and had a comfortable pickup and drop. Mr. Hamid took some fantastic picture in the sand dune of us which was fantastic. The fire show was nice and we tried veg food in the buffet and the crowd was well managed during the COVID times to keep sufficient distance from each other. Heena and camel ride is short one which can be add to the package.
