Entire Iraq Nowruz Tour
What's it all about?
The second half of the Entire Iraq Nowruz Tour takes us to the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan just in time for the Kurdish new festivities. We’ll be in the mountainous town of Akre for one incredible night of fire and dancing.
The region has long been known in Middle Eastern literature as ‘paradise on earth’. There’s no better time to visit than the Persian new year festivities celebrated by Kurds around the world.
This part takes us to the world’s most important Yazidi shrine at Lalesh (40 KM from Mosul), before heading north to Duhok, Saddam Hussein’s former palace, Amadiya, Sulaymaniyah and back to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Erbil.
