About this Tour

Day trips from Isfahan are very famous for Iran travellers because of the different highlights which surround this metropolitan. Desert sightseeing is one of the first options Iran travellers always consider. Varzaneh desert is the nearest place we can have a true desert experience when we are in Isfahan or Yazd. April, March, October, November and December are the best times to visit Varzaneh desert.

Varzaneh is one of the oldest civilizations, about 5000-years-old, shaped near the famous river named Zayhande-rood. Since the desert is very close to Varzaneh village and it takes only 10 minutes to get there, it’s one of the safest deserts and the most accessible one you can spend amazing times and make a unique experience out of it. Different activities and experiences are also available such as sand-boarding, camel riding, quad biking, paragliding, stargazing, zip line and much more.

Sleeping a night in Varzaneh desert can also be a unique experience for desert lovers. There are different choices to spend a night there such as Traditional guesthouses, Caravanseray and even Camping.
