This website is intended to be a useful resource for anyone interested in traveling to Iraqi Kurdistan. The information found on these pages is derived from my own first-hand travel experiences as well as the travel experiences of several other travelers to this region.
Please note that despite my honest efforts to keep the information on this website as updated and relevant as possible, things do change rapidly and as a result, I cannot guarantee that what you read is always 100% accurate. Also, I do highly recommend that all travelers to this region check with several sources before making their plans in order to determine the current security situation as well as whether or not Iraqi Kurdistan is the right destination for you.
Apart from that, I’m a firm believer that travel to such little-visited regions of the world offers travelers an education that simply cannot be matched. And it is this first-hand education that can help us eliminate many of the misunderstandings and misconceptions that we hold about our fellow human beings in other parts of the world.
This is why I decided to visit Iraqi Kurdistan for the first time in 2010 and why I will continue to visit this fascinating and welcoming territory as often as I can in the years to come.
Thank you for visiting and I wish you safe travels!
