Most travelers who visiting Iran and Tehran have no chance to see the countryside while there is 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 this village you will experience fresh weather and calmness forgetting the pollution and noise of Tehran. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from the sea level and is covered by mountains of Central Alborz. 

In autumn, the weather is a bit colder and color of nature changes, making one of the best seasons for biking between villages. Also, you can expect the rain during the autumn.

You spend two days mountain biking in Northern Tehran in the central Alborz Mountains in two regions. We run Mountain biking trips from Tehran into the nearby mountains. They are fantastic mountain biking tours based in Tehran and this tour is a short one. A short overnight mountain bike tour will start from the capital and we pick you up at your hotel in the afternoon and head to a village one hour out of the capital. The first day is just relaxing and arrival. The next day, you will have a full day biking through a combo of paved and dirt road. There is the trails and mountain tops for a great day of mountain biking.

This is an opportunity for who has not much time to take a Mountain Biking tour to a remote area and seek to experience two days biking in Tehran countryside. Also the bikes are included on this tour package and different sizes of the Mountain Bikes are available to pick and you can choose one of them.
