Travel Alert: The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommends against all travel to Iran, please check with your relevant national government.
A journey to Iran is a chance to peel away the layers of a country with a serious image problem. Beyond the stereotypes you’ll experience a country desperate to be seen for what it is, rather than what it is perceived to be. Whether you’re travelling in cities like Esfahan or Tabriz, in the Zagros Mountains of Central Iran or the deserts around Kerman, the real Iran will be revealed. It is a country where the desert glory of ancient Persopolis exists alongside the dynamic present of today's traffic-choked Tehran. At its core you’ll discover a country of warm and fascinating people living within an ancient and sophisticated culture. Embrace Iran, and allow the Iranians to embrace you – it’s the most priceless of experiences.
