Iran Tours & Holidays

Our thoughts are with the people in Iran, including our own team members, tour leaders and their families. Intrepid is not currently operating any tours in Iran.


Please visit our Travel Alerts page for more information.

From time-enduring remains of the ancient cities to the regional delicacies cooked up by those who enjoy sharing them – Iran is a destination we hope to experience with you again. When the time is right, we look forward to showing you the best spots for orange blossom tea in Bazaar Vakil, finding the best hand-made traditional sweets in Yazd and trailing under the intricate ceilings of the World Heritage-listed Golestan Palace. Any future decisions to resume operations in Iran will be based on the safety of travellers, staff and local communities.
