Overview

Varzaneh Desert & Guesthouse

Varzaneh Desert is located 100 km from Isfahan, spread in 1000 km2 of land area. We start our trip from Isfahan and it takes 1.5 hours to reach the desert. Getting to our destination, you’ll see a sight covered by clean sands. The mischievous wind has made the sandy hills into different shapes like linear, pyramidal or crescent.

As the desert is close to the Gavkhuni Pond, various plants have grown due to the wetness. You may also have the chance to watch different animals like rabbits, cats and hawks. Amazingly, you can take off your shoes and walk over the smooth clean sand. Touching the sand by your feet is a relaxing experience. Even in some parts, you’ll feel the sand’s coolness due to the underwater resources. If you stand on the eastern hills, you’ll have a scenic top view of the pond.

The speedy off-road driving over the rolling hills or camel riding would be so intriguing and joyful. For sandboarding, you just need to rent a board and slide down the hills. Riding motorcycles is available, just remember to wear the glasses. Trying paraglider and zipline are other options. If you want to observe one of the nature’s marvels, stay there till evening and watch the eye-opening sunset of the desert.

Later, we move to the Khara salt lake. The mass of salt have remained after the mineral water evaporation. Wonderfully, it’s formed a pure white landscape, where is actually the edible salt resource of the country. Watching the desert sky full of stars at night takes you to a fantasy and clears your mind as well. At the end of the day, we will move to a cozy guesthouse and have local food as dinner.

The desert is an intact region, where there are lots of wonders to discover. It’s a suitable sight to be released from the daily occupations and get a mental refreshment.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Beautiful city! Really enjoyed doing the walking tour in Isfahan with Samaneh! Her good English and in-depth knowledge in history and arts, not to mention her fun personality, made it a great experience for me 😉

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Visa TAP Persia est une agence très efficace et très professionnelle. La réponse pour le service visa est très rapide et d'un coût modéré. Mes interlocuteurs ont été professionnels et charmants. Je les recommande très vivement.

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Desert and BBQ

Incredible experience accompanied by our guide where he explained everything. we asked for BBQ (not included in the trip itinerary), and our guide prepared in a min. we had a lot of fun on the road and on dunes till the sun went down and came back on. I recommend it 100% and if it is with Ali your experience will be incredible.

Overnight in Varzaneh

This is a must-do trip. After a week in Iran, it's great to get to the desert and watch the sunset. Our host welcomed us with sweet drinks and took us to the sand dunes. there were available sand boards at the guesthouse. Sandboarding is great to try, have as many goes as you like.
