With over 15 million residents, Tehran is Iran’s melting pot, the center of its national identity. Check out local shopping experiences in the maze-like Grand Bazaar of Tehran, before heading off to the World Heritage-listed Golestan Palace, in Central Tehran. The 18th c. Qajar-era complex is a masterpiece of hand-painted tiles, set within a lush garden. After a quick stroll through Shahr Park, arrive at the National Museum of Iran, which holds artifacts from ancient and medieval Iranian antiquities.
In the morning, head for the green foothills of the 3,500 m Mt. Alvand, in the midwestern Iran, towards Hamedan. Explore the city that once served as the 8th c. BC capital of the Medes. Visit the Tomb of Esther and Mordechai, the biblical Jewish queen, and the Tomb of Baba Taher, the 11th c dervish poet.

Drive to Mariwan in Western Iran, close to the Iraqi border, the first of many stops in Iranian Kurdistan. One of Iran’s most influential ethnic groups, Kurds are native to the mountainous region of Western Asia, in present day Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Then it’s off to a quick hike, lakeside picnic or paddleboat ride in Zarivar or Zrebar lake. Rather than being fed by rivers and streams, the freshwater lake is fed year-round by rains and snow. Watch sunset on lake zrebar and spend the night in a Mariwan Guesthouse.
In the morning, head for Uraman Takht Village. Known as the “Huraman” throne, the stepped-village of Uraman Takht dates back to Pre-Islamic times.

In the morning, drive through steep, winding paths towards Palangan Village. Hidden away within folds of the Zagros mountains, Palangan features a stepped design, much like Uraman Takht.

Drive through the massive Zagros mountain range and make your way to Kashan, one of the handicraft capitals of Iran. Time-permitting, you can stop for a quick visit in the historic cities of Arak or Qom on your way. Rest in Kashan for the night.

Learn how underground water channels kept the city hydrated with a visit to the Yazd Water Museum. Stop in at the Zoroastrian Fire Temple and see the holy fire that has burned since 470 AD. Finish by seeing Tower of Silence to witness the mysteries of sky burials. Stay in Yazd overnight.
Time permitting, drop by for a quick visit in Dolat-Abad Garden. Once a residence of Persian regent Karim Khan Zand, this small pavilion set amid UNESCO-listed gardens was built around 1750. Afterwards, drive within Iran’s central desert towards the former Safavid capital of Isfahan. At night, visit the Khaju Bridge & Si-o-Se Pol Bridge, local hangouts along the Zayandeh Rud river. Finish the night with local dinner made by your host family in Isfahan. Spend the night in a homestay.
After a night’s sleep, visit the 16th c. Naqsh-e Jahan Square, the seat of Iran’s Safavid dynasty. Explore Qeysariye Bazaar, a local hub filled with handicrafts, spices & carpets.
