Iran is one of those countries that is mentioned a lot in the news, but not many people know what goes on there from day to day.
Ski touring is a great reason to go to the large central Asian nation (Iran is not in the Middle East, a mistake that is widely made) and meet some of the people as well as explore the culture.
Iran is home to 22 UNESCO world heritage sites and is also the stage for other popular outdoor activities, including hiking and mountaineering.
Almost every trip to Iran will begin and end with a flight into or out of Tehran. Be sure to spend a few days in the country’s large and impressive metropolitan capital.
During the winter, average daily temperatures are between -10ºC and -5ºC in the Zagros Mountains. There is generally a good snow covering, but precipitation is not frequent. Around Tehran precipitation is more frequent and temperatures range from -2ºC to 12ºC.
You should put a side at least eight to 15 days in order to visit Iran. This allows you to comfortable arrive in the country and transfer with your guide to destination(s) and enjoy the skiing.
