Largely known for its history, culture, and handicrafts you may have never thought of Isfahan as somewhere offering the most exciting experiences of rafting and safari.
But you just need to visit the city in spring or early summer. It is when the roaring Karun and Zayanderud rivers call all adventurers and nature lovers to action. The rivers originate from neighboring Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari Province. Within a two-hour drive from Isfahan you will get to Madan village in Lordegan county. There you can enjoy a delightful boating on the Khersaan River and an unforgettable rafting experience.
Alternatively, you can set off on a journey to the mysterious deserts of Varzaneh and Khara. Exploring the area in four-wheeler ATVs and sand surfing are two ways to get the most out of a safari. If you are into exploring deserts and want to spend the night away from the hustle and bustle of cities, caravanserais built during the Safavid era are there for you.
So if you are looking for some adventure and exciting activities, Isfahan Province is the place you should visit. Rafting is only one of the many activities that Iran’s diverse landscapes allow for. Each year large numbers of tourists visit Iran for these activities.
