Tour Description

From the serenity of Varzaneh desert and the pool of cultural heritage in Isfahan, this 3-day tour package is designed to give one of Iran’s most diverse experiences!

Watching the sunrise over the sand dunes of Varzaneh, creating all different kinds of shapes in the desert silence, is quite indescribable. It will be an inner journey through every step you take on the soft sands of the Varzaneh desert.

After taking in all the peace from the Varzaneh desert, you’ll be getting lost in Isfahan, the cultural gem of Iran tour, which is also known as half of the world. The art and architecture from thousands of years ago will take you deeper into the inner journey of what our Iran travel agency ancestors used to do when traveling through the ancient Persian civilization.
