Iran is situated in Western Central Asia in the area commonly referred to as the Middle East. It was geographically known as Persia until as recently as the twentieth century. In the North and Northwest, it is bordered by the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan (not to be confused with its own Iranian Azerbaijan region), Armenia and the autonomous Nakhchivan enclave. To the West lie Turkey and Iraq. Its southern boundaries extend to the scenic shores of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. It is adjacent to Afghanistan and Pakistan in the East and Turkmenistan to the Northeast.
Iran is one of the only countries in the world which has the complete four seasons.In summer, the weather can be cool as well as warm, and in the cold winters, it can be mild.A large part of the country suffers great extremes of heat and cold between summer and winter and rainfall is mainly confined to winter and spring. Summers are warm to hot with virtually continuous sunshine, with high humidity on the southern coasts. Very high temperatures can be experienced along the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea with a danger of heat exhaustion. Winter weather is very changeable with some mild, wet spells but also some very cold periods with frost and snow. A small area along the Caspian coast has a very different climate, here rainfall is heaviest from late summer to mid winter but falls throughout the year.
When planning the tours, we do consider all the possibilities that might affect the tour. Unexpected incidents like geographical, political, and social can cause some changes in the tour.
During fall and winter ascends, due to the unstable weather condition we have a day as “reservation day”. The cost of this day is nonrefundable and is added to the total cost of the trip and even if it is not used the money will not be given back to the tourist.
Our tours are absolutely tailor made and any changes that you have in mind will be applied to the tour. You can add or omit acclimatization day, cultural tours, and extend or shorten the days of your tour.
When there is a need to ascend to the shelter extra luggage will be transferred by mules and you will have light backpack with just essentials.
As the law of the Islamic country female tourists must have hijab. Scarf, long sleeve blouse which are up to mid-thigh length, and pants are required. Men shall not wear shorts in public places.
Iran`s currency may seem a tad difficult to follow but you will get used to as you shop once or twice. The formal format and name of Iranian money is Rial but Tooman is common between people. (10,000 Rials = 1,000 Tooman).
Road of Tehran to Polour is asphalted and in a good condition, so is the road of Ardabil to Shabil.
