Trip Notes

This package is suitable for anyone wishing to have a special experience of biking in the desert. After many years of performing desert trekking & 4x4 tours we have designed a different package to disconnect you from normal life and take you to the heart of Iran Deserts. This tour is a combination of different types of landscapes in Dasht-e Kavir. Our crew of professional desert drivers with 4x4 vehicles will support us during the biking and an expert English speaking desert tour guide would be with the group.
The biking route is part of the old and famous “Silk Road”. We have carefully chosen a part of this route that offers different eco-systems and changes in the landscape which simply are quite astonishing. We will come across mountain slopes and flowing dried rivers as well as the magical desert with its different colors and formations that together will make this journey enjoyable, but most remarkably an adventure that will stay in the memory and grow as a wonderful experience along one’s life. We have 4 days biking tour on this trip and approximately the length of biking would be 160 km. The main part of the route is flat but sometimes for having the best views and visibility we will go on the sand dunes in the desert. Also, we will cross a few villages and oases on the way. For 3 nights we will have a mix of desert Home stay, guest houses and camping in the oases. Depending on the season we might see semi wild camels, rabbits, foxes and if lucky enough some beautiful scorpions!!!!!!
At the end of biking tour we provide an off-road driving by 4WD vehicle to see more details of Central Desert.
In this tour you will walk more or less on the same route that Sven Anders Hedin, (19 February 1865 – 26 November 1952), the Swedish geographer, topographer, explorer, photographer and travel writer travelled by paddle steamer in 1886. He travelled to Persia twice in 1886 and 1890. In 1887, Hedin published a book about these travels entitled Through Persia, Mesopotamia and the Caucasus.
