North West of Iran Tour Introduction

Iran, the vast land of Persia, is home to different groups of people with different cultures and languages. Iran is one of the most ancient human settlements of the world and civilizations can be found all over the country from the Hyrcanian Forests in the north to towering mountains and dry deserts.
This Iran tour package is designed to show travelers the beauties of the northwestern part of Iran. You’ll also learn about the culture and language of several races living in the northern and northwestern part of Iran. Our journey begins in Tehran, where we can visit the most important historical sites of the last 400 years of the history of Iran. Then we visit Qazvin, the capital of Iran during the Safavid dynasty and one of the most important industrial cities in Iran due to its many factories. At Qazvin, you’ll get the chance to taste Gheymeh Nesar, a famous and delicious Iranian dish. Our nest destination is Zanjan, a city known for its special handicrafts and knives. We continue our Iran tour by visiting Tabriz, a city that has witnessed countless significant historical events from invasions to natural disasters such as earthquakes. This amazing city is believed to be built during the Sassanid era. We’ll also visit the 7000-year-old Kandovna village, one of the most unique villages in the world with only two counterparts in the world. We’ll head to Ardabil afterward and spend a night in Sarein on our way there. The city of Sarein is best known for its natural hot springs originating from Mount Sabalan. At Ardabil, we’ll visit its important attractions such as Sheikh Safi-al Din Khanegah and Shrine Ensemble (Sheikh Safi-od Din Mausoleum). Ardabil is also famous for its high-quality natural honey which is produced from flowers growing on the foothills of Mount Sabalan. Afterward, we’ll take the mesmerizing Asalem-Khalkhal road to Masuleh village and spend a night there. This outstanding village is one of the few in the world with a special stepped structure. In Masuleh, the yard of each house is the roof of the one below it. We’ll also visit Rasht and Bandar-e Anzali in Gilan province. Bandar-e Anzali is one of the important Iran destinations and is famous for its breathtaking Anzali Lagoon. Rasht is only an hour away from Anzali by car. This magnificent city was named UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy for its various appetizing dishes. There are also several vegetarian options available among Iranian dishes from Rasht. Another significant monument we’ll visit during our Iran tour is Rudkhan Castle ( Qal’eh Rukhan), an ancient castle that mesmerizes its visitors. Our journey comes to an end with a visit to Ramsar and getting back to Tehran through Chalus Road.

Iran Travel Experts are ready to answer your questions

Generally, April and May are the best months for traveling to Iran. The second high season period for traveling to Iran is from September to mid-November. It’s recommended to book your Iran tour 3 to 6 months in advance if you want to travel to Iran during the high season. This way, you’ll have various choices for hotels and flights and can get an early bird discount. For those interested in Iran trekking tours and mountain climbing in Iran, the best time  is during summer. The weather is rather hot at this time of the year (30-35 degrees); however, this won’t be a problem as vehicles and hotels are equipped with air conditioner. You can combine an adventurous Iran trekking tour with an interesting cultural tour. 

The high season for visiting Iran depends on the type of Iran tour you choose. The best time for Iran cultural/ historical tours is during April and May. However, from September to mid-November is also a great time for traveling to Iran. On the other hand, if you choose one of the Iran trekking tours, your trip must be in summer. The high season for Iran desert tours is from March to mid-May and in October and December. Furthermore, the skiing season in Iran begins in December and ends in April. You can also combine trekking tours with Iran cultural tour packages during summer. Our experts at Cheetah-Adventures will help you plan an enjoyable Iran trip and choose the best Iran destinations. Note that hotels get fully booked quickly during the high season so it’s best to book your Iran tour 3 to 6 months in advance to have more options and get an early bird discount. 

Yes. Iran is a generally safe country for travelers. In addition, a trip to Iran can be entertaining for all members of the family due to its various attractions and things to do. Read our Iran Safety article for more information.

Yes. Our Iran private tours can be altered based on your preferences. You only need to mention the desired changes in the comment section when booking your Iran tour. Our experts will contact you later and ask for the details. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change the travel itinerary for Iran group tours except for minor changes. 

Your accommodation will be in the form of bed and breakfast twin or double rooms at 3-star and 4-star hotels during all Iran cultural tours. We’ll inform you of the best options available on your tour date. You’ll have both the option of a traditional boutique hotel and a normal one in some cities that you can choose from. 

Each traveler may prefer one of these types of accommodation according to his/her habits and personality features. However, we recommend boutique hotels (traditional hotel) if they are available so that you’ll be able to experience the atmosphere of a traditional Iranian hotel as well as having access to modern facilities.

All Iran cultural tour packages offered by Cheetah-Adventures Iranian tour operator include accommodation, entrance fees and transportation. You may need 10 -20 euros daily for food, if your Iran tour package isn’t full-board. The amount of money you’ll need for buying souvenirs depends on your shopping habits.

An Iran small group tour normally consists of less than 10 people. You can book an Iran private tour package with the number of your companions. Larger group tours can be perfectly performed by increasing the number of tour guides and assistants. In this case, a Persian tour guide will be designated to the tour for each 4 people for safety measures. Cheetah-Adventures have successfully performed tours with more than 20 people.
