Damavand – Trekking and Sightseeing Tour in Iran

Spectacular scenery is combined with fascinating culture and history, in our 10-day tour-trek to popular Mount Damavand and the major sights of Isfahan and Shiraz. The highest peak of the Alborz range is an extinct volcano, its peak covered in snow for most of the year, with small mountainside villages where people still lead a simple way of life largely unchanged for centuries. It is possible to climb Mount Damavand from all sides, and we choose the easiest Southern approach, which takes 3 days. The glories of Isfahan and Shiraz and their historical monuments add a magnificent extra dimension to make this tour a truly exceptional travel experience.
