The answer is surely yes! Even if you are a US or UK citizen, all you need to do extra is find an official tour guide for your trip, for example, though Iran Nomad Tours.

Please, note that if you are a tourist from such countries as Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Georgia, Armenia, Venezuela, Egypt and Malaysia, you can freely enter Iran for up to 15 days without filling any application.

Also, you do not need a visa if you plan a 14-day stay in such areas as Kish Island, Qeshm Island, Chabahar, Maku, Arvand, Anzali, and Aras.
