Including the majority of attractions and interesting places in one tour for two weeks is practically impossible. Iran offers too many attractions that would take much longer than 2 weeks. This task becomes harder if you include a sporting activity as well. This tour is an intensive multi purpose cultural-adventure journey suitable for first time visitors. It covers three different regions for hiking in Iran. Two mountain regions in the west of Iran and one mountain region in the north. Dena and Zardkuh mountain chains are both part of the Zagros range located in western Iran. Lar National Park is situated in the foothills of Mt Damavand which is part of the central Alborz mountain range. Mt Damavand is the highest mountain in Western Asia at height of 5610 m. The beauty, wildlife, birds, climate, terrain, trees, plains, flora and fauna of each mountains is different and it therefore makes this journey special. Dena also is a National Park and designated UNESCO biosphere reserve. A mule trek with nomads is one of the main highlight of this journey, travelling through their territory and seeing their way of life in a region seldom visited by any other foreign travellers. You will share meals with them and socialize with their families. The classic cultural/historical part of the trip covers the most important and world renowned UNESCO heritage sites. The season for this trip is in Mid-spring till mid-autumn and the journey starts from Shiraz and ends in Tehran. Booking in advance for this trip is mandatory as we have to get permits for two national parks and organize mule trekking which is time consuming. If you have more time over two weeks and would like to experience something more than this, please contact us.
