Rig-e Jen Expedition in 4 days

A Deep Desert Safari In Iran

Contact us

Enquire about this tour


Experience the feeling of exploring a desert which people historically believed that it could not be crossed. Since “Rig-Jen” is an area of different types of dunes which are mostly moving on top of the vast mud lands of the Central Desert, even the oldest caravans avoided the borders of this desert.

The lack of water sources is another reason for that. We are proud to finally open a fascinating route to cross this unknown desert. Although we have exact plans to deal with all difficulties, the nature of these trips is to expect the unexpected.

Special dune riding techniques with optional activities like sand-boarding and skiing on dunes will pump adrenaline into your veins. You will visit enormous Tagh jungles (the only plant that may even grow in +70.C) and different climates of a desert from the border to the core. Camp sites with panoramic views of sunrises and sunsets over spectacular oceans of dunes will make an unforgettable memory of a special expedition in one of the most pristine deserts in the world.

Tour Highlights

  • Visiting Lut and Rig-e Jen, two of the world’s most pristine deserts.
  • Visiting most important cities of Iran (Kashan, Isfahan, Yazd and Tehran) all in one trip.
  • Visiting beautiful desert villages of Iran deserts with their distinct history and stories.

    We organized a 3 weeks tour in Iran through SURFIRAN. SURFIRAN is a very Professional travel agency who understands their customers needs and expectations. Our stay in Iran was just fabulous, the program built by SURFIRAN was great, we have seen many and many very interesting sites and locations.


    Most we enjoyed the landscape and wildlife we saw, it was just amazing and not comparable with nature we found in Germany and Europe, one of my greatest experiences! Second we enjoyed the kindness of you guys (Mehdi, Negin and her family, and the two houses we stayed) it was like meeting family and friends :)

    We visited Iran on October 2016 with SURFIRAN travel and tours company. Organization of round trip, hotel accommodation and flights were perfect. Our guide Mostafa was absolutely excellent, helpful, friendly and his information about Iran were very informative. Thanks a lot ! Will come back soon.

    Everything was arranged very efficiently. Nothing went wrong. Our guide, Mostafa Farhadi, was remarkable. Not only was he a brilliant driver, but his knowledge of the culture, history and contemporary life of Iran was amazing. He also had superb contacts in all the places we visited.
