Summary

This tour is probably one of the most attractive tours offered by our company. In this tour you will have enough time for trekking in Alborz Mountain range, explore the villages around, taste local cuisine, socialize with local people and stay in their homes. The highlight of this tour can be visiting the castle of Alamut and know more about its history but you will also visit the remains of another castle used at the same era called Lambesar. On the way to the Caspian you will visit a beautiful lake “Ovan” having the chance of staying with local people and tasting their food. In the second part of the trip we will visit Masuleh which is a historical village attracting many tourists because of its architecture and people. Masouleh is surrounded by forest from valley to mountain and fog is the predominate weather feature of Masouleh. In this trip you will also have the chance to visit Rudkhan castle, which is a medieval brick and stone castle built on two tips of a mountain.
Rasht is the capital of Gilan province by far the largest city of the Shomal (Caspian littoral) region. Gilan is very famous for foods and one of the best places in Iran in terms of vegetarian foods. Also we will visit the old Rasht bazaar as well.
In this tour we have tried to use local people and their facilities as much as possible so ethically part of the income generated from this tour would go to the local people increasing their quality of life. We appreciate the locals for their support and help which enabled us offering such a trip.
