About Iran

Could this be the friendliest country on earth? We’ve experienced firsthand the genuine, caring nature of the Iranian people and we’d agree that it is. This is one of our favourite ever travel destinations from over 190+ countries travelled. Iran has received a bad review from media and news outlets for too long.

This country has so many treasures to be discovered, many dishes to be enjoyed and many friends to be made. Book a trip and go and experience it for yourself. Get 5% off this 12-Day’ Ultimate Iran Adventure’ with Epic Backpackers – just enter promo code HUNGRYNOMADSAREEPIC at checkout!
