When it comes to winter holiday vacations, most would immediately think about European regions. While cities in these regions boast of perfect snowy atmosphere, there are actually many alternatives in the Asian region, where one can experience winter. For those willing to brave the cooler weather, winter can be one of the best times of year to travel. Iran is a friendly country and is fun to visit any time of the year. However, if you are looking where to spend your winter holidays, don’t look any further and consider visiting Iran.
Many winter activities and just simply beautiful landscapes turn the country into a postcard-pretty and desirable destination. We can assert that Beside Lebanon, Iran is the only country in the Middle East that enjoys the natural ski. Dizin and Shemshak are the most popular Ski resorts and two of the largest in the country, just hours drive from Tehran. At a high altitude range of 1200 to 3600 m, Dizin is one of the 40 highest Ski resorts in the world. For the same reason, the Ski season in Dizin lasts longer than European ones, from late November to May. Shemshak is for more advanced skiers. There are hotels, villas, private apartments and restaurants in Ski resorts in Iran which host thousands of visitors each year.
If you are itching to escape the season's cold weather and you are not a ski enthusiast, then you may head to South. Southern provinces experience a very nice spring-like weather during winter and exploring them is quite fun. Khuzestan, Hormozgan, Bushehr and Sistan and Baluchistan provinces present a large number of historical sites, cultural diversity and lifestyles. Iran has also several beautiful islands in the Persian Gulf, among them Qeshm and Kish islands have made quite a reputation. Kish Island was ranked among the world’s 10 most beautiful islands by The New York Times in 2010 and fourth Tourism destination in Southeast Asia. Regardless of the season, travel to Iran and enjoy every spot of this fur season country.
