Overview

Village tours are among the most popular ones for travelers who are into having a close exposure to local culture. During this one-day excursion to the splendid village of Kandovan, we will visit the amazingly built stone carved homes, making a unique landscape. This daily tour is a great chance to get to know the lifestyle, traditions and customs of a large majority of Iranians who speak Azeri and widely spread in the whole country.

Located in the mountainous north-western Iran, close to Tabriz, locals in this village have their own specific lifestyle since hundreds of years ago. Having freezing winters, the area is even cold during the summer and one of the best parts of the country to visit during hot season. On this tour, we will explore the village itself by spending some time in a local home and having our lunch. Also, we will stroll in the village to explore its uniqueness. A small hiking on a hill near it, helps us to get the best view possible of the total structure of Kandovan.

As you know, the diversity of ethnics and cultures in Iran is truly wide. In case you are interested in discovering more about a large population of Iranian Azeris and visit a distinctive village, do not hesitate to book this tour!

Tour duration is from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
