Overview

Among the most interesting experiences of a desert tour in Iran, we can mention camel riding and stargazing activities. During this four-day tour in the central desert of Iran, we will have the chance to do both along with exploring the breathtaking sand dunes of the desert, visiting the natural Salk Lake of the neighborhood, spending some time in Kavir National Park and exploring the historic caravanserais dating back to 19th century. Moving from Isfahan to Kashan, we will have quite a good time to spend 3 nights in the central desert and bring back home unforgettable memories with us.

The tour starts from Isfahan, the city of amazing domes, moving toward Aran O Bidgol where we will see Maranjab Caravanserai and get our camels to have our camel trekking in the desert. Camping in the desert over the night will give us a great opportunity to enjoy the starry night of the sky. The next day is time to return to our starting point and give our camels back to the owner and drive to Kavir National Park where we will witness some great wildlife in this protected area including native goats, sheep, Indian wolves, gazelles, and by chance the rare Asiatic cheetahs and the Persian leopards.

On the next day, we will continue our tour to another famous caravanserai called Ghasr-e Bahram Caravanserai where we will spend the night along with exploring the area. The tour will finish the day after that by driving to Kashan. Altogether, this tour allows you to get deep into a desert experience and discover the central desert of Iran.

Iran experience

One of the most unforgettable experiences we had during our Iran trip. We had the camel ride for a few hours everyday right before sunset. The camels were clean and calm. The staff offered to take photos of us on the camels with our own phone. The bbq dinner was also nice and we were able to enjoy belly dance and fire performance during the dinner. We highly recommend this trip to people visiting Iran.

Camel riding Iran

Tour was good. Pick up and drop off was smooth. The tour itself is very family friendly - both my 4+yr son and my 50+ mother are able to enjoy it! Camel ride was the highlight for us of course, the performance was also nice. Tour guy was very friendly too. Highly recommended tour for family
