Trip Notes

This package covers 350 km biking in central Iran mostly in desert areas plus visiting two main touristic cities of Esfahan and Yazd. There are two world heritage sites in Esfahan and lots of interesting attractions in Yazd. The biking route is part of ancient Silk Road disconnecting you from daily life by taking you to the remote areas. We will come across various mountain slopes, dried-up rivers as well as the magical desert with its different colors and formations. The biking route in this itinerary is a mixture of paved and dirt roads. The journey is led by professional crews and supported by vehicles. An English speaking MTB guide will be with the group during biking activity in the field. The tour will start from Esfahan with a short sightseeing of the city. A biking loop will take us to Yazd, after visiting this ancient city we will cycle back to Esfahan to complete the circle. There will be 7 days of biking between two cities. The main part of the route is flat but sometimes for having the best view and visibility we will go up the sand dunes in the desert. There is the possibility of seeing wild life such as camels, rabbits, foxes and so on.
