Cycle through Iran
We believe the world is at its best from the seat of a mountain bike. No screens or guidebooks. Just the wind and the open road. That’s the thinking behind our brand new cycling tours. There’s little that can beat the beautiful simplicity of a bike ride. Our tours are for people who really want to see a place, not just travel it.
Join us for a two-wheel discovery of the hidden world of Iran. Designed for those with a good level of fitness and a spirit of adventure, our experienced English speaking tour guides will take you to the wonders of mystical Iran and into the heart of the Persian Empire. Our cycle routes are crafted by local experts and are full of hidden gems amid spectacular terrains. From Shiraz’s ancient Persepolis ruins, to the intricately tiled ceilings of the mosques at Esfahan, travel along ancient trading routes to the lively bazaars of Tehran and the immaculate gardens in Kashan. Passing the deep red mudbrick town of Abyaneh and cliff-cut necropolis Naqsh-e Rustam, embark further into the shimmering desert and camp overnight with the Nomads, then ride into the mountain foothills of the majestic Mount Damavand. From five cycling tours to choose from, ranging from 8 to 16 days, we offer unique journeys that will satisfy your urge to pedal.
