Tour Highlights

Iran desert tour offers you a real adventure into the magnificent Iranian desert landscape and the unique sands of Iran.

Only a few hours drive from the bustling metropolis of Tehran, there is a large ‘Desert of Iran‘ lying in the middle of the Iranian highlands.

The Central Desert of Iran or as it is locally known, Dasht-e-Kavir, is home to beautiful, astonishing villages such as Mesr where attracts many visitors who embrace the traditional lifestyle that has been practiced for centuries.

Traditional yet renovated houses are where tourists stay for a relaxing night, while camel riding, desert trips, and sightseeing will excite you during the day.

Living in the Iran desert has its own unique lifestyle where you will witness how local people protect their houses against moving sands and survive on water as found in deep wells.

The Iran Desert is quite like few places are. It’s tranquil setting, free from the bright lights of a city, attracts astronauts and photographers from across the world to observe the night’s sky in all its beauty.

If you wish to make a memorable trip to Iran, we highly recommend SURFIRAN’s Central Desert tour.
