When you decide to travel to Iran, you will come across several tour packages offered by tour operators. Many of them have got land tours in Iran. There are reasons why this type of tour is preferred by the majority of tourists who visit this country. I will explain why such preference exists.
You Travel to Iran to See Countryside
People make a journey for various reasons including relaxation and taking the pleasure of looking at beautiful landscapes. We are not all living at typical type of terrain. Dutch people appreciate high mountains in Iran, Brits admire the deserts of Iran, Nordic tourists love the strong sunshine here and Arabs love the semi-Mediterranean climate at the Caspian Sea area.
By the way, I have just mentioned a wide variety of climates and natural attractions. It is true that you can find all such varieties in the countryside of Iran. So, make sure you include some of it to perfect your journey and enjoy the scenery as well as other sights and highlights offered to you when you travel to Iran.
See Rural Life during Land Tours in Iran
Culture-oriented tourists, who are the dominant kind of visitors to Iran, are enthusiastic about exploring some rural life in Iran as well as other attractions seen around villages like animal husbandry, farming fields, rural roads, vernacular architecture, lifestyle in remote areas, etc.
In culture tours, the point is not to stay in top hotels, visit museums and sights inside the big cities and fly between all cities. This gives you an artificial incomplete image of Iran that will always need a missing link to where the origins are. When you travel to Iran, you visit a country with thousands of years of history and numerous historical traditions rooted in successive ages handed over to next generation. So, land tours in Iran are the solution to experience such wealth of traditions for yourselves.
Explore Historic Monuments Outside Cities
People living in ancient times or previous centuries were not living only inside the cosmopolitan cities of today. They were everywhere. They had built roads and bridges, caravansaries, fortresses, watch towers, guard posts, etc. Even some abandoned cities of antiquities are now on your ways when you travel from town to town.
Land tours in Iran provide such opportunities for travelers to see such historic monuments in their natural locations and topographical situations. It will not be possible to experience all such rich attractions without driving across the country.
Visit Nomads in Your Travel to Iran
Migrating people are still maintaining their history-old lifestyle in Iran. When you drive between towns in this country, you happen to see the tents and animals of nomads living in certain areas. If you are in the right season, when nomads are migrating from high mountainous spots to low lands and plains in search for grazing fields for their animals, you will see them close to the roads.
It will be quite interesting to stop by and pay a visit to these people. You learn about the shape of their tents and the materials they use for making them, you sit on their hand-made rugs, talk to them in any kind of language possible (if you do not use a tourist guide), you notice how closely their lives are dependent on their animals, etc.
It is Just Out-of-Towns Attractions
What I have just explained in this article covers the tourist attractions outside cities and towns in Iran. As you travel to Iran, you see a lot more. Cities have got their own charming attractions as well. Land tours are important as they take you to the origins, but the combination of inside and outside towns will make your trip a memorable one.
