Tours to Iran: Rig- Jenn Expedition

  • Rig- Jen Expedition

    300km journey through a vast ocean of untouched nature

Rig- Jenn Expedition

Travel ID: ST/01

Experience the feeling of exploring a desert which people historically believed could not be crossed. Since “Rig-e Jeen” is an area of different types of dunes which are mostly moving on top of the vast mud lands of the Central Desert, even the oldest caravans avoided the borders of this desert. The lack of water sources is another reason for that. We are proud to finally open a fascinating route to cross this unknown desert. Although we have exact plans to deal with all difficulties, the nature of these trips is to expect the unexpected. Special dune riding techniques with optional activities like sandboarding and skiing on dunes will pump adrenalin into your veins. You will visit the enormous Tagh jungles (the only plant that may even grow in +70⁰C) and the different climates of the desert from the border to the core. Camp sites with panoramic views of sunrises and sunsets over spectacular oceans of dunes will make an unforgettable memory of a special expedition in one of the most pristine deserts in the world.

Tour Itinerary Duration

5 days & 4 nights
5 cities

  • Day 01 & 02 Entering the vast sea of dunes

    We begin our tour at 8.00am from Anarak to Rig-e Jeen desert. After passing through the mountains, we will enter a vast sea of dunes which we traverse on our trip. It will take about 2 days to pass this pristine area to arrive at long walls of dunes of more than 100km in length. If there has not been any rain over the past 7 days, people who bring their sand board or snow board will have great opportunities to ski on the sand during these 2 days (optional).
