As Iran has vast deserts we have varietal of desert tours for different travelers. This tour has been designed for people who would like to have a couple of days trekking and camping in the remote areas of Iran Central Desert. This tour has been performing by Adventure Iran from 2013 during desert season. The journey starts from Esfahan and ends in Yazd.
In this package we visit some oases and beautiful landscapes enabling trekkers to escape modern life for a few days and disconnect with civilization. The first day you will have a non-trekking day with driving from Esfahan to an oasis taking 5-6 hours. You will have a couple of stops for a short visit in Nain and Anarak. During these 4 days you will stay one night in a guest house and two nights in the camp. There will be walks from 40 km up to 70 km on sand dunes and flat desert. The trekking length will vary depending on the month/season you are traveling, weather conditions and group’s fitness level (long days during spring and very short days during fall/winter).
Desert has a variety of terrains such as mountain slopes, heavily weathered rock formations, sand dunes, salt dunes and other large scale crystalline formations. This combination of desert trekking, local cuisine and open air camps create an epic and unforgettable atmosphere that will help one imagine ancient travelers with their caravans of merchandise crossing the desert on the Silk Road.
