Travel through Iraq on our Holidays and Group Tours in Iraq

Iraq is certainly not your average holiday destination, and lives in most people’s minds through the images shown in the media. However the northern region of Kurdistan, to all intents and purposes a separate country from the troubled south, ranks as one of the most intriguing places in the Middle East. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Iraq concentrate on Kurdistan, a land that must be one of the most ancient on our planet and with a history as wide and varied as it is long. Explore cities that date back to the dawn of human civilization, ancient monasteries and bustling bazaars that belie the difficulties of the past. Kurdistan is now experiencing a real renaissance but it not yet on the tourist trail – there is no better time to visit.

Southern Iraq - The Land Between the Rivers

Style: PioneerGroundbreaking tours to unique destinations
Duration: 9 days
Type: GroupTravel with a small group of other travellers

Iraq is home to more archaeological and historical sites than any nation on earth. While the northern autonomous Kurdistan Region of Iraq has been freely accessible for decades, due to political circumstances and war, those located in southern Iraq have been all but closed off to the world’s eyes. With the fall of Saddam Hussein and the recent improvement of security, these sites are now open for the intrepid traveller to visit. Follow in the footsteps of Abraham through the city of Ur of Chaldea; stand in awe at the gates of Babylon where Alexander the Great spent his last days and King Hammurabi ruled his Babylonian Empire. Spend a moment of refection in some of the world’s most important religious locations dating to the stargazing Chaldeans; home to some of Christendom’s first churches, and today several of Islam’s holiest cities and shrines. Begin your journey in Baghdad and for the next eight days experience what most lovers of history have only dreamed of seeing.
