Iran is a wonderland of various climates and cultures. Located within one of worlds two mountain stripes and also one desert zone, Iran has become a desert-mountainous land with almost half of its area covered by mountains and one third of it deserts.

The hyrcanian forests in north, high raised mountains in west and widespread elevations in east, center and south of Iran have created diverse natural Landscapes within the country. But, the central sunken plateau of Iran is mostly suffering from low precipitation due to its geographic situation.

This has caused vast barren deserts in central parts of Iran which has brought up a variety of survival methods among residents of these lands for centuries. People have learnt to adapt to the harsh climate and so we can see a lot of wonderful techniques in their way of living and architecture. Cities and villages are built in a complete harmony with climate, so the urban structure differs from the expectations. Desert cities are deserts legitimate heirs of serenity, simplicity and beauty and preserve various cultural landscapes. Life still goes on through the traditional contexts of many of these cities and so makes a unique opportunity to watch culture and everyday life of people within their historic frameworks.

In this tour you will visit Six UNESCO Sites (Golestan Palace, Fin Garden, Dowlat Ababd Garden, Chehel Sotoun Palace, Pahlavan Pour Garden, Qanats) and many other heritage sites and urban historic sites.
