Rich history & culture
Iran, once the center of the world’s oldest civilizations, is ranked 9th by UNESCO to have the most world cultural and historical heritage sites. Remnants of the old world spread all over the country has made Iran a country-sized museum. The art and aesthetic properties of old Persia are well preserved and manifested by the next generation of Persians in Islamic era architectures. Iranian culture, on the other hand, is influenced by ancient traditions. As the Iranian way of hospitality, Zoroastrian festivals, Persian cuisine, art, crafts and many other customs are still surviving from ancient times.
Travelers that visit Iran’s classical route of Tehran to Shiraz get to visit the ethnic Persians, who constitute about half of the nation’s population. It needs traveling to more parts of the country to meet other ethnic groups of Azeris, Kurds, Gilakis, Lurs, Turkmen, Baluch and other ethnicities, each with their own language, dance, clothes, music and other customs.
How many countries in the world do you know to have hot arid deserts with high sand dunes, big lush forests with swamps, long coastlines with mangroves or high mountain ranges all together! A land where you can relish skiing on a snowy day and enjoy the sun on sand beaches, both at the same time of year! Not to mention all the astonishing natural beauties, like mud volcanoes, great waterfalls, wetlands and more. All this diversity has made Iran a wonderful low budget destination for adventure tours like canyoning, cycling, skiing, rafting or bird-watching.
