Join like-minded women on a 12-day female-only, female-led expedition through Iran. This adventure is designed to allow travellers a unique opportunity to discover the customs, food, challenges and lives of local Iranian women through a range of experiences otherwise off limits to normal tour groups. Step inside the hidden world of an Iranian beauty salon, wander through a female only park, experience rural nomadic life with Qashqai people, meet with young female entrepreneurs, and learn secret recipes from those in the know. This trip will expose you to a range of fascinating local women and give you the chance to speak openly and honestly about life in Iran as a woman. Open your eyes to another way of viewing Iran on this female-focused escapade. Highlights/r/n
  • Uncover the extravagant wonder and hidden gems of Iran, with expert local knowledge from a female leader – ornate mosques, ancient cities, small guesthouses and exclusive experiences await!

  • Step inside the fascinating and vibrant hidden world of an Iranian beauty salon, and visit a fashion boutique to learn about the different techniques of tying and wearing a head scarf.
