The whole Varzaneh package consists of three different tours to three different directions. It starts in the first afternoon and ends in the next afternoon.

The first on is the salt lake & desert tour. It starts 4:00 pm during summer and 1:30 pm during winter. After that we go back to the traditional guest house to have some local home-cooked food as dinner. On this tour we visit places such as:

  • Ox-well complex
  • Water spring
  • Fire temple
  • Salt Lake
  • Sand dunes (sunset & sandboarding)

The second one starts an hour before sunrise in order to have our breakfast after catching beautiful sunrise on the rooftop of an ancient caravansary in the middle of the desert surrounded by mountains. The breakfast consists of cucumber, tomato, cheese, butter, carrot jam, tea, and fried eggs on the fire we make there. Then we move back to visit some other sites on the way such as:

  • Gavkhooni wetland (bird watching)
  • Black mountain (hiking)
  • Small waterfall
  • Camel mill complex

The third tour begins after the second tour and taking a short rest in the guesthouse. On this tour we`re supposed to visit the second biggest and only alive citadel in Iran, Ghoortan castle. It takes about one and a half hour to visit its ancient places like the mosque, go on the top of the gates, and see animals which people raise there.

After having lunch, you can continue your trip to Isfahan or Yazd.

    "Enjoying sand & salt in Varzaneh"
    We went on the Salt Lake and Desert tour with Reza and we enjoyed it very much! Walking in a salty lake is a unique experience. The sand dunes are beautiful at sunset and we had great fun going down the hills on a sand board. Reza’s English knowledge is remarkable, we especially liked his openness and he will make sure that you have nothing to worry about during the trip.

    "Great tour with Reza! "
    Thanks Reza and Sina for taking us to the salt lake and the desert! They both took very good care of us. Salt Lake was a beautiful surprise for us. Staying overnight in the desert was a bit crowded and noisy, so try to avoid the weekends.
