Many travelers visiting Tehran miss the chance of seeing its countryside while there are great offerings around Tehran for adventure/cultural tourists. There are ski resorts, wildlife, protected areas, rock climbing opportunities, seasonal ice climbing and mountain biking areas around Tehran. It would be a good idea to escape Tehran and relax in the villages nearby for a couple of days. In the village you will stay in this program you will experience fresh weather and calmness forgetting the pollution and noise of Tehran. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from sea level covered by mountains of Central Alborz. 

In autumn, the weather is a bit cold and nature's color changes, making one of the best seasons for biking between villages. We will pick you up from your hotel in the afternoon heading to the village an hour away from the capital. First day is just relaxing and arrival. The next day, you will have a full day biking on a combination of paved and dirt roads.
