Snow Sand Sun & Sea is an exciting Cultural-Eco adventure through Iran’s diverse natural and cultural landscapes, designed to create a once-in-a-lifetime journey through the natural wonders, fascinating history, and heartwarming hospitality of one of the most ancient cultures in the world.

From the snow-capped peaks of the Alborz Mountain range to the majestic golden sand dunes of the central desert to the turquoise waters and sunny shores of Qeshm Island with all of its unique natural wonders and historic architecture, this incredible journey will take you through three contrasting natural landscapes and cultural realms in fifteen days.

The best time to experience this wonderful journey is November to early March when the Alborz Mountain range is ideal for Skiing and Snowboarding.

If you are interested in experiencing this journey in late march or fall, we can replace skiing in Alborz with unique trekking and eco-adventures through the green landscapes of the North.
