Find out why Iran is ElderTreks' hottest selling trip!

From Snow capped mountains to hot, dry deserts, Iran is geographically stunning!

Explore the legacy left by the ancient Persians, from the ruins of Persepolis, Shapur and Bisotun, to the beautiful bridges, mosques and squares of Isfahan, the rock tombs of Naqsh-E Rostam, the 7,000 year old pyramid of Kasham, Tombs of Daniel, Esther and Mordecai, a Zoroastrian Fire Temple with a flame that has been kept lit since 470 AD, walking the narrow streets of Yazd and staying in a refurbished Caravan Serai. Few countries can boast of 12 UNESCO sites and an impressive history dating back to the Bronze age!

The food is delicious! And since hospitality is an important part of the Iranian tradition, the only thing warmer than the food served here is the welcome offered by the people. After running trips to Iran for more than 10 years, the greatest shock for our travelers is typically the very warm welcome they receive from Iranians they meet during their visit.

As intrepid traveler Anthony Bourdain (CNN - host of 'Parts Unknown') describes it, the history of this “ancient and beautiful” country is “a multi-hued, very old and very complicated story”. A land of incredible beauty, with some of the most hospitable and welcoming people you could hope to meet, Iran is a land of contradictions and incongruities, straddling the line between Eastern and Western cultural influences and sensibilities and characteristics which make it all the more intriguing!

Due to sold out trips, we have added the following 2 new departures for the spring of 2015:

  • Apr 27 - May 17, 2015
  • May 22 - Jun 11, 2015

ZORRO AND PIXIE

It’s our one-year anniversary as adoptive parents to Zorro, our ElderTreks-sponsored cheetah - and like all proud parents, we wanted to share a photo of him cuddling here with his sister, Pixie. Last year ElderTreks president Gary Murtagh visited the De Wildt Cheetah Centre in South Africa, where he met and sponsored Zorro to help support the conservation efforts of the Centre. You can read more about the Centre here.

IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS INFORMATION:

ElderTreks has always made efforts to practise sustainable, responsible travel around the world on our tours, and now we are applying more of that same thinking here at home.

Starting now, we will be sending electronic final documents via email to our passengers, instead of paper ones.

The good news is that not only does this help protect the environment, but for every set of documents we email, we will donate $5 to the Abetavu Children's Village in Uganda. This is a charity that is near and dear to our hearts, and which we have been involved in for years. (You can read more about Carly and her kids here.)

With your help, we'll be making a difference here at home and in the lives of these abandoned and abused children on the other side of the world.
