When's the best time to go?

For sightseeing and touring, Spring and Autumn are ideal because the temperatures are not too high to be out and about all day, while summer can be very hot so a good time for beachside pursuits. Winter is chilly to very cold, depending on location, and offers extensive skiing in the mountains around Tehran. Highest demand occurs in spring, when sights are correspondingly busier and rooms book up faster. Don't forget to check when Ramadan will fall as much of the country will be operating a 'skeleton service' during daylight hours at this time.

Why travelling with TravelLocal is better

Iran is full of surprises - trust us, we have hosted travellers from all over the world who would readily agree! IranHRC was founded by Mohammad Reza Tavakoli in 2010. At that time our country wasn't well known as a tourism destination, but Mohammad knew the country's enormous potential. He partnered with Kasra Fasihi to bring the country's unique culture and history to life. Our team has grown to 130 today and we help travellers from all over the world to experience Iran first hand. We are members of the Tour Operator Association Of Iran and, like all companies on TravelLocal we are locally-owned.
