Matinabad eco-camp has been placed among world’s 18 top ecotourism sites with best performance in sustainable tourism.

Matin Abad Desert Camp & Organic Farm, Iran is one of 18 best practices in sustainable (eco) tourism initiated by governments, NGOs, and private sectors, in developing countries, including SIDS, with potentials for replication elsewhere.

The best practices were collected and analyzed by four main criteria: Conservation, Community, Culture, and Commerce, initiated by The Zeitz Foundation, the main pillars of sustainable (eco) tourism.

Matin Abad Desert Camp & Organic Farm was established in 2008. The group of experts in tourism and naturalists want to provide the tourists with an opportunity for an experience and adventures close to the nature. In the company of seasoned naturalists, tourists will experience treks with camel ride or walk; they can ride bikes through waves of sand and mountain valleys, and can even enjoy desert walks in the beautiful star-lit nights.

Located between the sand dunes and vast semiarid grass-covered plain is the camp with modern facilities. It is about 45 Km away from Kashan, one of the popular tourist places in central Iran.
