Some testimonials

Our three days travelling with Nomad.Tours in the Zagros Mountains was a highlight of our recent trip to Iran. We experienced firsthand the world of the Bakhtiari nomads and the stunning natural wonders of the high ranges. Here, perhaps a million people live a nomadic pastoralist lifestyle, moving between summer and winter camps with their flocks of goats and sheep.
‘Authentic’ is a ridiculously overused word to describe experiences. But here, it could not be more appropriate. Be ready to be awed.

If anyone is interested in experiencing and observing the lives of the Bakhtiari Nomads in Iran, I strongly recommend traveling with nomad-tours.
In September 2016 I was fortunate to take such a 5-day tour. My tour guide, Mohammad, and his friend Navid, both of whom are very knowledgeable about the area and the lives and traditions of the Bakhtiyari Nomads.

I went on a three day ‘tour’ with two friends and our nomad tour guides. Usually I am not a tour fan, as it reminds me of huge groups of tourists and buses emptying for ‘5 minutes picture time’, but this was great! The guides themselves were enjoying the trip so much as well. Mountain views were very beautiful! And you won’t find any other tourists out there! The beauty of the Himalayas, the luxury of the abandonment. You need to be a bit flexible to join such trip. The schedule will adapt to weather, the people you meet, and your own needs. When sleeping in the nomad tents, you live like the nomads.
