Best Camping Spots in Iran

What’s better for changing somebody’s mood than a reuniting camping trip back to where we all crave so much; nature. As refreshing and self-reviving as that might sound, camping trips in Iran are not made for everybody and anyone who buys an Osprey Ariel Backpack and stuff it with the essential camping gears is not going to have the time of their life; a small misstep or bead of wrongly interpreted geographical information can end in a camper being chased by a roaring bear through the never-ending jungle in the north or a climber finding themselves drinking from a shallow spring while a brown mountain wolf is curiously looking down on them and thinking to himself, that’s a juicy breakfast for me and my entire horde. For this reason, and for you not to wind up in a near-death experience, we have gathered a list of the best camping spots in Iran widely approved and popular that pose no threats to outdoor adventurists.
Camping in Iran is free and legal and exceptionally fun, particularly for blue-eyed blond-hair tourists in Iran who receive the best services and Persian hospitality.

Bus Rides in Iran; Low-key Fast and Furious

The only places that you can’t go in Iran by bus is across the deep waters of the Caspian Sea in the north – the Shomal area if you will – and south of Bandar Abbas shores, into the crystal-clear briny water of Persian Gulf, to the strait of Hormuz and famous Iranian Islands and free trade zones like Qeshm and Kish; only because long-tailed sea bridges like Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau mega bridge are not yet a thing in Iran and not because the Iranian bus drivers aren’t qualified for the job or their beloved coach-buses aren’t up to the task; trust us when we say they even face a fictional journey into the salty seas riding a long-hauled coach with a “can-do” attitude while repeating the phrase “Inshallah” all the time – meaning if God wills it, it will happen! These guys are professionals and that’s what makes bus rides in Iran an unbelievable example worldwide.

Money matters – Do you need a travel debit card for your Iran trip?

So you’ve decided to take a trip to Iran! Afarin, as they say in Persian, which means something like, good on you!

Because Iran is a bit cut off from the international world, there are some additional considerations to ponder and decisions to make before you set out. Don’t panic, Iran’s isolation is largely diplomatic and political so unlike other countries that suffer major sanctions, in Iran, you will always be able to find decent food, healthcare, transportation, English speakers and hotels.

A Wonderful Experience in Yazd

The desert city of Yazd, located about 620 kilometers from Tehran or 310 from Esfahan, is an old town with a rich history. There are many things to do and see in and around this fascinating city, including significant Zoroastrian sites, the historic city of Yazd with its still-inhabited mud-brick dwellings, and the vast expanse of sand-dunes and desert activities. Along with its laid-back atmosphere and predictably dry weather, it comes as no surprise that Yazd is a popular tourist destination; there are several travel agencies with English speakers in the main town, with some goods and services even priced in euros. Two friends and I made a last-minute plan to go to Yazd over a 4-day weekend, and it quickly became one of my favourite Iranian destinations.
