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!
