Intrepid Travel announces inspiring Iran Adventure

Intrepid Travel announces an inspiring Iran Adventure

Continually breaking new boundaries, Intrepid Travel's are now off to Iran! With a rich and varied culture, incredible Islamic architecture, fascinating ethnic groups, beautiful mountain and desert scenery and remarkable history, Iran would have to be one of the most alluring and mysterious destinations in the Middle East.

Departing from the chaotic city of Tehran, Intrepid's Iran Adventure explores the beautiful Esfahan, the ‘pearl in the Persian crown’ and the ancient city of Darius the Great, Persopolis. Travellers trek through the majestic Alborz Mountains, enjoy a sunset camel ride, relax in the wonderfully restored teahouses in Shiraz and Kashan and meander through the ancient mud brick town of Yazd.

Perhaps the greatest highlight will be a night spent with the Qalaqais nomads of the harsh Iranian plateau. Intrepid travellers will experience nomadic life through herding their animals, tending to the fields and perhaps helping with the cooking. The barren landscape of the lonely steppes that surround them is in stark contrast to the vibrancy and hospitality of these people. After sharing a meal with our new friends we will be entertained with some traditional nomad dancing and singing. This is sure to offer a rare tale to tell when our travellers return home!
