Day 12: Galat Village

Shiraz is known as the city of Literature, Poets and Gardens. It’s also home to hospitable locals that leave visitors so bathed in their welcoming and laidback glow, that they yearn to stay. (Hint! Most of our Iran Patchies wished they could have spent more time in Shiraz).

So here’s your chance to stick around for a while!

It’s less than an hour’s drive into the countryside this morning, to the mountain village of Galat. Enjoy lunch after exploring the ancient village with its ruined stone houses. Then, take a deep breath of that country air, and walk off lunch with a short hike to one of Galat’s nearby waterfalls.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Karim Khan Hotel or similar

Day 13: Firuzabad

Thanks to invaders and visionaries alike, the site of Firuzabad has been reincarnated several times over the millennia. And today you’ll feel the overwhelming presence of historical greatness as you explore its heritage-listed plain – most obviously when you’re dwarfed before the Palace of Ardashir’s monumental entrance, built nearly 2,000 years ago.

After a local lunch, you’ll circle back via ‘the pink lake’ to explore its salt crusted shores. Dinner tonight will be at another of our favourite restaurants back in Shiraz.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Accommodation: Karim Khan Hotel or similar

Day 14: Shiraz

Roll up your sleeves ladies – it’s time to get your hands dirty! For this morning, you’ll join one of Shiraz’s pottery artisans for your very own masterclass.

Potters are revered in Iran and symbolically referenced in poetry and literature. Today you’ll learn how the craftsmens’ innovative attitude enabled the craft to not only survive, but flourish in times of political turmoil.

In the afternoon, here’ll be time enough to pop down to the bazaar for some last minute shopping. And oh, that last fabulous Persian dinner is booked in too!

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Karim Khan Hotel or similar

Day 15: Farewell friends

It’s time to say farewell to your guide and Iran today. There will be hugs and a tear or two, for sure. You’ll be transferred to the airport in time for your departure.

Included: Breakfast
