Nomad’s Migration in the Eyes of Fritillaria!




A real experience of migrating with Iranian Nomad and sightseeing Nomadic area of Iran with 1-day migration

Live with an Iranian Bakhtiari nomad family and discover the nomadic area, food and their unique lifestyle!

In this tour, we will experience a 12000-year-old nomadic culture and lifestyle by migrating with them between their seasonal places.

Here you will find the most important feature of tribal life which is their seasonal migration to protect nature; as a result, they are always ready to load all their living stuff on their livestock and travel around.

In this tour, we travel with nomads through their migration route, live and learn their culture, taste their delicious food and enjoy the intact nature.

Besides the migration experience, we will also do sightseeing the attractions of cities in the nomadic areas like Shushtar watermill, Sar-Agha-Seyed village, Kouhrang spring and Masjed-Soleyman museum of the nomad.

In this package, we provide you 1 day migrating with a night accommodation with a nomadic family and 4 days seeing around.

(Fritillaria is a genus of spring flowering plants in the lily family which grows in Zagros mountains.)

*Please note that we provide small group tours (max. 4 travelers). If you are traveling with a group or you have any special requirements or you just need to customize your itinerary, feel free to contact us via



Our Partner | Mr. Ali Mollah

Ali Mowla bakhtiari man

Remembering the great Jaffar Qoli as one of the last “Kalanthar” of the Bakhtiari. I was surprised to discover that Ali Mowlah – the father of our host family, is actually related to Jaffar. Being an old and respected member of the Bakhtiari tribe, Ali proved himself to be a man of great experience and hospitality. He had many questions for me too, and with help of Elham from our team, who could speak Farsi, we could communicate and exchange some cultural backgrounds.

Children of Zagros

A bit later we met the mother and the shy daughters as well, Sumaye and another girl, whose name I have forgotten. They were in the camp, preparing food and the daily bread. The older daughter, Sumaye, is married, but her husband was in the city on business. The boys, who are usually in charge of shepherding, came a bit later. Sa’adi as the oldest son (21-year-old), Sa’adat, and Peyman, the youngest, are the three sons who had joined the family for this migration.
