Sarein; a chilly summer destination in Iran.

Although many travelers believe that summer is not a good time for traveling to Iran and all the cities spend very hot days during this season, there are cool and charming cities which make you a fabulous summer vacation in Iran!
Being located in the Ardebil province in the northwest of Iran, the small and beautiful Sarein (also spelled as Sareyn or Sar Ein) is one of those chilly cities. Sarein is located only two hours from the great Sabalan Mount and enjoys the cool breeze and the fresh air at this high land. Vivid blue sky, honey bee farms, green plains and white wooly fat sheep grazing on the pastures are the amazing and peaceful landscapes you will enjoy on the road to this town.

The hot springs of Sarein which are rich sources of minerals because of being located by the silent volcanoes of Sabalan are known as the most amazing attraction of this city. Entering these hot spring spas and enjoying the relaxing hot water will make you feel like staying there for a whole day!

This city changes into a popular hangout for the skiers and ice climbers in winter. With high and tricky glaciers, Sabalan Mount calls many ice climbers and hiking groups and Alvares Ski Resort, located 36 kilometers from Sarein becomes the home for the skiers.

Tasting natural honey as the main souvenir of Sarein, the nuts and the zesty dried fruits picked from the old gardens of Sarein and also inviting yourself to fresh and juicy kebabs served in the local restaurants and also sipping a tea with locals who introduce themselves as professional tea lovers, are the things that you shouldn’t miss while you are visiting the amazing Sarein.
