X-Mas Holiday Land Maranjab Desert

Let us help you experience an extra-ordinary Christmas Eve this year, under the starry night of the Maranjab Desert, gathering around a bonfire, in the snow which is not snow, but a snow-white Salt Lake in an ancient land with an age-old history, joining a multi-national group sharing a single reason: celebrating the blessings of Christmas and wishing for the global peace!

Take the short memorable Safari to the Mranjab Desert to explore the glory of Iran’s deserts and dunes, enjoy the stunning sunset of the desert, grasp the sophisticated desert silence, and embrace the beauty of the Milky Way Galaxy!

Now, you have been energized-enough to hit the road and continue your journey to have a close encounter with Iran’s history and culture, get familiar with local people’s life-style in the eye-catching village of Abyaneh and the marvelous city of Yazd, the art of the Islamic Era in Isfahan, the history and civilization of the Achaemenid Era in Shiraz -the great land of Parseh, most of which have been registered on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

So, join us on this fabulous event this December! Let’s celebrate Christmas together!
