Captivating Iran: A 6-Day Honeymoon Itinerary
Most honeymooners typically choose destinations like Hawaii, France, or Las Vegas, known for their beaches, wine, and entertainment. However, this can be somewhat cliché. Exploring exotic, unexpected locations can appeal to those seeking a less conventional honeymoon. Iran, for instance, is an excellent choice for adventurous couples or those who think outside the box. Its popularity has grown so much that exclusive itineraries are now offered for newlyweds. Honeymooners worldwide are interested in Iran for its unique blend of sandy beaches, old bazaars, dream-like architecture, and breathtaking gardens. Key destinations include Kish, Isfahan, and Shiraz. Taking a less-traveled path for a honeymoon, like exploring Iran, can add a touch of romance and uniqueness to the experience.
A few international airlines connect Shiraz to the rest of the world (Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and Air Arabia).
Upon arrival, you will be met and greeted at Shiraz airport and transferred to a 5-star hotel in Shiraz.
In the afternoon, you will have a tour of Shiraz’s gardens. There are various kinds of roses in these protected gardens. It’s a great start to a fantastic honeymoon. These gardens are Eram Palace, Narajestan Garden and Afifabad Museum.
We will start our Shiraz tour by the Karmikhani complex, the residential palace of the Zand dynasty. Karim Khan Zand, the founder of the Zand dynasty, chose Shiraz as his capital and declared himself as “Vakil,” the lawyer of the nation, rather than a king. We continue to the Vakil complex, Vakil Mosque, Bazar, and public baths remaining from his reign. We also visited the colorful Nasirolmolk mosque.
In the afternoon, you will fly to Kish Island, and after your transfer to the hotel, you can stroll around this beautiful island and perhaps have a cup of coffee with the locals.
You will relax at Kish’s sandy beach. In the afternoon, we will have another tour of Kish Island, where you can also enjoy this beautiful island by riding a bicycle along the sandy beaches. A visit to the old town will show you the traditional way of local life. We will eat at one of Kish’s great seafood restaurants in the evening while enjoying the local music.
You will have another wonderful sunny morning in Kish, where you can do lots of other activities, such as swimming, snorkeling, water sports or shopping, before transferring to Kish International Airport for your flight to Isfahan. Arrive in Isfahan, meet and greet with your local guide, and transfer to the hotel.
In the morning, we start our full-day tour of Isfahan at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Naghsh-e-Jahan Sq. Once a royal polo court, this site was the official center of the city when it was the Safavid Capital (17th Century). We will visit the famous Imam Mosque (Royal Mosque), the square’s southern side with incredible architecture and tile-work. In the afternoon, We will head to the banks of the Zayanderud River, the city’s soul. Several historical bridges over this river were erected during the Safavid era (17th Century). Siosepol (33-arch) and Khaju bridges are the most famous ones. We enjoy visiting these two interesting bridges, drinking tea at the tea house below the bridge, walking along the river bank or paddling on a boat from one to the other.
Transfer to Isfahan’s international airport for your departure flight home.
