Trip Notes

This tour is not only ideal for adventurous hikers, but offers a combination of cultural and historical experiences and insights into one of Iran’s least explored corners. We start from Tehran, driving past Hamedan and Sanandaj, the capital of Iranian Kurdistan, from where we will continue towards a Kurdish village to start our eight-day hike. The Iranian Kurdistan Trail lies across the region’s most picturesque mountains, canyons, forests and villages. As the temperatures are often unstable, the exact programme of the tour is subject to the weather conditions. In early spring and late autumn, it is cloudy and rainy and the temperatures are cooler than in the summer. After the hiking part of the programme, the tour continues by car to some of the most interesting cultural and historical sites of Western Iran. We will overnight by the Zarivar Lake, visit UNESCO World Heritage Site at Bisotun and then return to Tehran. After that we will bring you to Tehran’s International Imam Khomeini Airport for your flight back home.
