Cultural Concerns

Nomadic culture holds a library of social, cultural and natural knowledge. In one way the nomads are common in several parts and easy to connect to; however on the other side they are vulnerable to being exposed to globalization and modernization resulting in extinction of cultural diversity. We do our best to design these tours with no harm to the nature and no effect on nomad͛s culture.

During the tour, we should pay attention that we do not negatively impact their culture, intentionally or unintentionally. That is why we would like you to take the following cultural aspects into consideration when joining the tour:

  • Before taking photo of a woman or a girl ask us if it is okay or not. The nomad people mostly do not let people take pictures from girls before they have gotten married. This behavior is partly religious and partly because of being used to habits of parents and tradition. We do not want to change any tradition, so please be respectful of this rule.
  • In traditional families, it is not common for girls to make contact with unrelated men. It is therefore important to keep an appropriate distance.Be respectful of taking pictures in general, also with children. Try not to shoot pictures of people at random, connect with them first and make sure they agree.
  • For unrelated men and women it is not common to shake hands. As a woman, be reluctant and wait for the other person to reach out to you.
  • Please pay attention to the Iranian dress code. No shorts for men. Women, please cover your hair and try to wear a longer shirt/dress that covers your curves.

The objective of this tour is to accompany the nomads during their daily life, also respecting their traditional culture in all its aspect and not causing any change. This includes time to get up, not for lounging, no shorts or tight to wear fitting clothes etc.

Another goal is to encourage the nomads in their traditional way of life. This contributes to the preservation of their culture. For example, by asking about their traditions, this goal will be achieved. A close touch of a tourist who seeks the culture of the nomads, is to appreciate their lifestyle just as it is and express it verbally and in action. (If you buy any handmade stuff from the families, we will pay 20% till 40$)

If you make any content (video, article, podcast, …) of the Nomads tour, this is valuable to us. We would like to receive this content and in return you (or anyone that you introduce) can get back a percentage of tour fee in order to buy handmade crafts or a tour package
