Wild Frontiers founder Jonny Bealby is more about the off-the-grid reaches of a place than its gilded salons and buzzy galleries (or even, sometimes, its better-known monuments). Hence the 15-day tour (www.wildfrontierstravel.com; from £3,295 per person, first departure May 28) that Wild Frontiers guides will lead through northern Iran will forgo conventional visits to the likes of Yazd and Isfahan, and instead forge a trail through the Alborz mountains, with treks from castles to traditional villages, culminating in a drive up the Azerbaijan border to peruse the famous market at Tabriz – one of the world’s largest and oldest covered bazaars.
