We did a classic tour in some of the most interesting cities in Iran; however, there are different types of travels that can be done in this land, so the best period depends on the travel you choose.
Iran historical cities: Teheran, Kashan, Isfahan, Yazd, Shiraz. The time window is quite narrow, April is the ideal time ; From March 21st to April, there is theNowruz, Zoroastrian new year celebrations. Visiting Iran during the Nowruz means finding full hotels, so much confusion and high prices. Another good time could be the month of March, just before Nowruz celebrations. Another possible period for classical Iran goes from September 15 to late October. Outside these periods, it is very hot in the summer months and very cold in winter.
In Iran, however, other types of travel are also possible at other times, including:
- Skiing Vacations: On the Elburz Mountains there are several ski runs with low costs compared to European standards. Of course, best time for this trip is winter
- Hiking on Elburz mounts: In Iran lies the highest mountain in the Middle East, Mount Damavand, which reaches 5671 meters above sea level. Throughout the mountain range there are several peaks over 4000 meters, for hikers the best time is definitely summer
- Traveling in the desert : Autumn is the best time
For other types of travel you can read the classic tourist guides, but we think that these are the main typologies. Pay close attention to Ramadan , whose dates are variable as they are based on lunar Islamic calendar. During this time Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn to dusk, Many shops and restaurants are closed and it seems that forced fast can make someone a bit irascible. We suggest to check the Ramadan dates before starting the travel organization.
