Iran is not often associated with splitboarding but it should be. This mountainous Central Asian country has a lot to offer intrepid splitboarders.
Heading just outside of the capital or making your way through the center of the country to the southwest will yield all sorts of splitboarding opportunities. Alam-Kuh, Oshtoran-Kuh and Kuh-e Menar are just among a few of the iconic peaks ideally suited for splitboarding.
Take advantage of the unique nature of a splitboarder to get to places regular snowboarders couldn’t even dream of enjoying while having the freedom to split the board apart and climb like a ski tourer.
Prior to your arrival to Iran, make sure you’ve looked up visa requirements. UK, USA and Canadian citizens all require a visa in advance prior to arrival. EU citizens are free to receive a visa upon arrival.
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.
Any trip to Iran begins with a flight into the Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA). You can get here directly from most major European and Asian cities. From here, your guide will likely arrange transport to the start of your trip.
