Update on Iran

Unfortunately, due to travel bans and retaliation with regards to visas, ElderTreks has had to cancel some of our upcoming Iran departures. Until we find out how things will play out in the future regarding both sides, cancelling departures is regrettably our only option.

With a country full of such ancient and rich history, and the Iranian people being some of the most welcoming and friendly you will find, ElderTreks can't wait to return and share this amazing country with our clients again. Stay tuned as we hope to return sooner rather than later.
