Iran, one of the cradles of our civilisation. Get transported back to the ancient times of the Elamites, the mighty Persian empire, and to the Islamic times. Iran is a country with a rich history and culture. Here you can explore the ancient ziggurats of Elam, the palaces and tombs of the Persian Kings and beautiful Islamic architecture of the shahs. Highlights of every journey to Iran are a visit to Persepolis and the city of Isfahan.

People often ask us if Iran is safe for travelling and it certainly is. All the normal reservations also hold true when in Iran of course and woman need to cover their bodies and hair, which is a hustle every now and then. But the people absolutely make up for it. We’ve never felt so welcome as we did in Iran. People are super kind, without being pushy. So don’t be dissuaded by the news but update yourself on the latest situation on the ground.
