Iran adventure tours offer unique and professional active and adventure trips in a variety of sectors, including mountaineering, trekking, hiking, cycling, alpine skiing, and desert safaris, as well as eco-cultural tours that explore Iran’s historical highlights. Not only are these Iran tours very popular, but they also offer experiences different from any other tourist destinations.
From the Alborz to the Zagros, and from the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf, these excursions allow you to see the beauty of Iran’s natural and historical landmarks and attractions. These territories encompass Iran’s huge central desert, home to vast sand dunes and caravanserais.
The Persian Gulf to the south, the Caspian Sea to the north, and the wild rivers of the Alborz and Zagros mountains to the west are all ideal areas for water sports. The most popular spots for Iran water adventure tours though, are always Kish island and Qeshm island.
Whitewater rafting, kayaking, river climbing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and water skiing are just a few of the water adventure sports you can handpick for your Iran adventure tour. World-class whitewater experts accompanied by safety kayaks lead your rafting experiences.
Among all Iran adventure tours, skiing is especially adored by all adventurers, from within and outside the country. You will not be disappointed if you plan a trip there. Iran is a mountainous country with over a hundred peaks rising above 4000 meters. Its two main mountain ranges, the Zagros and Alborz, cover a large area and have good snow conditions, superb routes, and breathtaking sceneries.
Large resorts, such as Tochal, have challenging and steep slopes that are best suited to experienced skiers. Smaller resorts, on the other hand, provide an opportunity to get off the main path and interact with local skiers. They’re also ideal for setting up a base camp for a ski touring excursion.
In steep gorges with rocky cliffs, slopes with rich orchards, alpine grasslands covered in wild flowers, snow-capped peaks, and lush woods, Iran’s mountains provide a tremendous variety of landscapes. Based on ecotourism principles, we provide inexpensive and sustainable Trekking & Hiking tours across Iran’s mountain ranges that benefit locals.
As most our hiking and trekking tours are mixed with cultural aspects, you will be getting more than just surveying the beauty of Iranian lands on your trip. Meeting nomads and hospitable locals to learn about their customs and traditions motivates you to pursue your dreams and broaden your horizons.
Explore a country with a rich avifauna that covers some stunningly beautiful settings. Whatever your feelings about Iran, now is the ideal opportunity in decades to go birding in this vast and little-known country that is home to some very unique birds.
Iran also has the most diverse avifauna, with 500 species of birds reported, which is more than any other country in Western Asia (more even than Turkey or Israel). This country also has more regional bird species breeding than any other tourist destination in middle east.
Great canyons with or without flowing water are found merrily across Iran, from the northern woodlands to the central and western mountains. We provide fully guided cannoning experiences for tourists of all skill levels.
We also tailor your experience according to your travel style and physical readiness and prepare a trip filled with surges of adrenaline for you. Our guides will accompany you throughout the canyon route, whether you are an experienced canyoner or not. Most tours include cannoning gear and equipment too!
In Iran, there are over a hundred caves that have been fully discovered or are still being explored, allowing us to offer excellent guided caving experiences for all adventurers. Tours range in difficulty from beginner to advanced technical caving, as well as cave expeditions and spelunking for those who prefer the dark.
You may find it interesting to know that there are numerous untracked and relatively unexplored passages in newly found caves in Iran. Anyone who wishes to book one of our Iran adventure tours should know that we offer safety, protection, and support equipment. If you’re interested in exploring the underground world, Iran’s experienced caving guides will take you to the mysterious world of the beneath.
Iran adventure tours offer single-track mountain riding in the backcountry, on paved and dirt roads, throughout the country’s mountains and deserts. Iran provides suitable rental bikes, but dedicated cyclists are more than welcome to bring their own equipment.
Iran adventure tours employ different vehicles with roof bike racks depending on the size of the group and the road conditions. You only have to carry your small bag on riding days, and the team will transport the rest of your belongings every day. If the routes are single track and the transport vehicle cannot follow, your gear will be delivered to the camp site in the evening.
Iran is a beautiful nation with a variety of temperatures ranging from semi-arid to subtropical. As a result, the plantation and wildlife are diverse in different areas. People in Iran’s northwest plains have moderate springs and falls, but harsh, frigid winters with large snowfalls.
Summers in these places can be hot, but not as hot as in the country’s southern reaches, where average temperatures can reach 38°C and humidity in some areas or islands can contribute to the mix. Winters in Iran’s south, on the other hand, are pleasant.
You can enjoy temperate temperatures and little rainfall around any of Iran’s two main mountain ranges, the Alborz and Zagros, as well as the Caspian Sea. Summers are hot in the center of Iran, where the most spectacular deserts have collected. During the months of October, November, and December, however, you can enjoy losing your heart and soul in these fascinating sand dunes.
Sustainable travel (also known as ecotourism) is all about making simple decisions that reduce your negative influence on a certain destination. In the grand scheme of things, each of these decisions makes only a minor difference. However, together, becoming more aware of these minor details can have a significant influence.
We can’t control the carbon emissions produced by the planes we fly in, the chemicals used in hostels and inns where we stay, or the plastics used in souvenirs sold in the bazaars we visit. However, we may choose more environmentally friendly modes of transportation, hotels, tour companies, and shopping methods that are less harmful to the environment and assist local people.
According to a recent TripAdvisor survey, over two-thirds of all tourists are becoming more environmentally conscious and prefer to travel green. If you are among them too, then you will find Artin Travel tours and services quite fitting!
