Description

Stretching across the north of Iran, the Alborz Mountains are home to the highest peaks in the entire country and, when winter comes, offer some of the best ski touring in Central Asia!

Join me and over the course of our eight days together, we will head right into the heart of these mountains and explore more than 10 different summits in the western portion of this range.

After meeting up at the international airport in Tehran, we will transfer to Iran’s premier ski resort. Based from this incredibly cozy and stunningly placed resort, we’ll head deep into the mountains each day to make some incredible runs, while getting some of the best views around.

Days will generally begin with an invigorating ascent of one of the many snowcapped peaks in the region, before we race down untouched and perfect powder back to the foot of the mountain.

After a whole week of doing this, you’ll wonder why you haven’t skied in Iran before and start planning your next trip back!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable and unique 8-day ski touring expedition to the heart of the Alborz Mountains in Iran!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you may also enjoy my ski touring expedition to the Zagros mountains!

About the guide

My name is Hamid. I am an official Mountain Guide in Iran, IFMGA-Aspirant Guide and manager of Iran Climbing Guide. I work together with a group of four experienced mountain guides qualified by the Irani Mountaineering Federation and Tourism Ministery.

We have a high rate of success in the trips we organize for our clients. Our mission is to give you the best taste of the country by travelling with the best guides in Iran.

I am a highly experienced climber and skier. I've done many first ascent climbs worldwide and set many routes. I have also skied on many different mountains in Iran. We know the mountains very well and we organize amazing trips for people from all over the world. You could have a look on Trip Advisor by searching " Iran Climbing Guide " to see our rating and people opinion about our services.

I'm also the first and only IFMGA Aspirant Guide in Iran and hopefully will be the first fully certified IFMGA guide in Iran next year (2020). I also hold the highest level as Rock Climbing Instructor in Iran: Level 1. I am a Level 2 Ice Climbing instructor, founder of Navigation courses and founder of Bigwall climbing courses.

We really care about our clients and strive to provide them with the best experience possible, offering delicious food in our tours, prepared by our great cook and showing you the amazing country of Iran.

All our guides (two male and two female guides ) are highly experienced and have had the experience of working with many famous agencies around the world. So you will get much more than you expected from us.

We all speak very good English and we have a French guide for city tours as well. It would be a pleasure to see you soon!
