Experiencing Iran: history, nature, backpacking, meeting locals

This was our trip to Iran, spending a few weeks backpacking through cities and small villages. We made the whole trip on a low budget to fully experience this country, doing Couchsurfing, taking local transport and meeting the warm-hearted Iranians.

During these weeks, we've seen some fantastic architecture, met incredibly friendly people, learnt more about Islam and broke down any stereotypes that we had. We felt very safe.

Starting in Tehran, we travelled to the north, visiting mountain villages close to Damavand and the Caspian Sea. We then moved south to Shiraz where we visited the ruins of ancient Persepolis and slowly worked our way back north by stopping by Kerman, the Kaluts desert, Yazd, Isfahan, Qazvin and finished our trip hiking the Alamut valley.

IRAN from Solo Female Traveler's Perspective - Vlog

I traveled to Iran solo, without a guidebook or concrete plans. I met a lot of incredibly nice and welcoming people on the way, saw stunning architecture, attended local birthday parties, hiked around nature, visited many mosques, and even bought a carpet!

IRAN: Don't trust the mainstream media!

Sara Melotti, a young Italian travel photographer, talks about her experience of visiting Iran with SURFUIRAN.



I wanted to see Iran. I wanted to feel the charm of ancient Persia, admire the intricate and colorful designs of its architecture, taste the incredibly diverse dishes, soak in the multilayered culture and live its well known heart-warming hospitality on my own skin; and thanks to SurfIran I did it all, on a dream of a road trip I’ll never forget.

IRAN TRAVEL VLOG - The REAL Tehran 2017

**Watch in HD and Full Screen for the Total Tehran Experience! Also, The ending is the best part!!! Don't miss it!**
Follow me around Tehran, Iran from April 7th-30th, 2017 in my new Tehran Iran 2017 Travel Vlog as I visit my extended family, eat delicious food, and head to local tourist attractions like Tabiat Bridge, Tajrish Square, Chitgar Lake, and more!

For my 2015 Travelogue, click here: See full details below:

If you live in the West, you've likely heard mostly negative things about Iran, and it's been over 30 years that U.S.-Iran relations have been more than a little strained. But the images you see on TV don't reflect what life in Iran is truly like. In the course of conversation, someone recently asked me when the last time I went to an amusement park was, and I said I think it was on my 2012 trip to Iran, to which he responded, Wow, there are amusement parks in Iran?! I had no idea. I've also read comments underneath online articles about Iran saying things like the people there all want to blow us up the babies are being raised to be terrorists all they care about is their religion and killing....but you'll see that the people there are just like us. They care (for better or for worse!) about how their selfies turned out, how many likes their photo got on Instagram, eating good food, and spending time with family and friends. They have malls, amusement parks, and even rap music!

Speaking of, here are the links to all the music featured in this video:

7 Things I LOVE About IRAN - by Drew Binsky

After nearly 2 weeks in Iran, I can tell you with certainty that this country has turned into one of my FAVORITE COUNTRIES in the world!! Words (or videos) cannot express how happy I am here.

From the heart-warming people to the ancient nature and tasty kebabs -- here are 7 things that I love most about Iran. (There are about 100 things I love about Iran, but these are just the top 7 ;) )

Surviving in the Iranian Desert? (Yazd, Iran)

Could you survive in the middle of a desert as hot as Iran, with no electricity, limited water and temperatures often over 45C (113F)? Now try to imagine doing that in Iran, 1,800 years ago!

Here in Yazd, Iran -- I’ve learned the different methods for how ancient humans in this area survived dating back to the 3rd Century. To get water, they would dig a system of deep underground tunnels (up to 300 meters deep) to find wells, and somehow, find a way to funnel down the water into the towns.

It’s summer right now in Iran, and let me tell you, it’s BLISTERING HOT outside here. Reminds me of summers back home in Phoenix, Arizona. I cannot imagine the struggles these people went through to survive.

Putting the history aside, the old town of Yazd is stunning with the most beautifuly-crafted blue-tiled mosque and a thriving shopping scene at the bazaar!

Have you ever heard of Yazd, or been here to Iran before? Let me know in the comments below!

ROAD TRIP MIDDLE EAST: Iran (Part 3 - Yazd, Isfahan)

Welcome back to the next part of my journey as I travel through Iran, filming my experience as a tourist, sharing with you the kindness of Iranian people. This time, I go from Shiraz to Yazd and then up north to the beautiful city of Isfahan. In this episode, we rent a car and drive to the magnificent historical ruins of Persepolis. I sleep in a little ecolodge homestay called Nartitee in the mudbrick village of Taft. The next day, I explore Yazd, a former centre for Zoroastrianism, and meet a sweet local girl and her mother. The adventure continues as our road trip takes us up to Isfahan - a sophisticated cultured city with inspiring architecture and history. We stay in the home of a kind local couple and I speak with their son, Amir, who is a professor at a university in Isfahan.
I continue to see examples of the kindness of strangers, Persian hospitality and signs that this population truly wants peace and friendship with the rest of the world. I hope that in sharing this journey with you, I can give you some insight into their hearts and connect this troubled but beautiful country with humanity.

ROAD TRIP MIDDLE EAST: Iran (Part 2 - Shiraz)

After filming in Dubai last episode, I set off for Iran to start my road trip across the Middle East. My journey began in the beautiful city of Shiraz, known for flowers and poetry. Come with me as I explore my first Persian city as a female alone - the food, the architecture, the markets of the bazaar, but mostly, the people. I stayed in the magical Darbe Shazdeh boutique hotel, where I met an inspiring couple from London, travelling Iran with their children as a family. I also became friends with Faranak, the owner of the hotel, who gave me fascinating insight into life as a woman, business owner and advocate of tourism to Iran. I hope you enjoy this travelogue. I still have much to learn about Iran's history and politics and culture, however, I hope that maybe I might encourage you to consider the positives and beauty of this frequently misunderstood country.

Traveling to the north of Iran together with crazy Iranian youth.




When we came to Zanjan, Iran, our friend Mehdi invited us to go to the northern part of Iran (near the Caspian sea) with him and eleven other young people from all Iran. This was an amazing adventure :) We slept in the mountains above the clouds, had lunch in the beach near the Caspian sea, visited famous town Masuleh and had hundreds of dance breaks in those three days. :))
Persian dancing, Iranian food and discussions about Persian and European cultures were only a small part of what we experienced during our journey to the North of Iran.
One traveler from Czech Republic and one from Kuwait hoined our journey too.
After thode few days in the Northern Iran, Mehdi took us back to Zanjan and after spending a night with our Couchsurfing.com host we continuoed traveling. Next destination was Tehran. If you are thinking about visiting Iran, please consider traveling to the North of Iran and seeing Masuleh town too. You will not be sorry. :)

Isn’t it Iranic? A Documentary of Today's Iran: Part I

White Nile Presents: “Isn’t it Iranic?” A documentary of today’s Iran by Edgar Boshart.

The taproot of the tree of civilization, Iran. While the USA is an entity less than a quarter a millennium young, Iran’s recorded history bows back 5000 years. At its height, about 500 B.C., Persia controlled more than 2.9 million square miles of land spanning three continents, east into India, south to Egypt, westward to Greece. It reigned over roughly 44% of the world’s population, making it the largest world power ever by population percentage.

Yet, the ebb and flow of time saw the region conquered by Alexander the Great in the 4th century BCE, by Arabs during the great expansion of Islam in the 8th century CE, and by the Mongol Empire in the 13th. Every time, it has risen again to create another borderland with a deep and unceasing identity. When it comes to putting today’s international squabbles into perspective, Iran takes the long view.

Come take an inside view with us of today’s Iran.

Read about our 2017 Iran trip here:

Backpacking Through Iran

Iran was the fourth country of our Worldtrip and it was beyond beautiful. Its people are the most friendly people on earth; they will invite you to their homes, won’t let you spend your money and are really interested in your thoughts and views about Iran. It’s difficult not to love this country as a traveler. With a Visa on Arrival we travelled for two weeks through Tehran, Kashan, Esfahan, Varzaneh, Yazd and Shiraz. And oh yeah, the food will kill you with its yummyness.

IRANIAN HOUSE TOUR | My hotel in Tabriz #36

Actually I stay most of the time in my tent but I couldn't miss this opportunity and stayed two nights at this beautiful iranian house in Tabriz. It was really unique, old and had its charme! I love old houses and especially this one is a real treasure. Persian architecture and home design is something so different which makes it even more beautiful. I hope you liked this house tour guided by my iranian friend Dariush :-) He is also a professional filmmaker, so check out his insta profile.

I will make a movie called “Visa World. It's about borders and differences. It’s about a journey to the other side of the world and what it takes to fight global challenges.

It’s a one (wo)man production because I believe that it doesn’t need much to tell a great story. I'm doing all this to collect donations for the charity KAUGMAON on the Philippines. I know their work and it's coming from their heart to give children a better life.

If you are interested in the movie you can register for it on my website (for a small donation which goes to the NGO).
