Iranians travel a lot in Iran and the number of domestic tours is increasing every year. some travelers travel by themselves and some of them use local travel agencies or tour operators for their holidays.

As we have many official and unofficial public holidays on our calendar, sometimes it makes a very busy traveling time for your trip to Iran. These holiday as we mentioned in the post “Iranian National Holidays in the Calendar” sometimes makes booking difficult. In this useful travel advice, we will indicate the most important one for you as a traveler, travel agency, or tour operator who would like to travel to Iran.
Below we listed the dates of continuous Iranian national holidays which make the busiest travel time in Iran for domestic travelers. During those dates, finding the air tickets would be difficult and all of the railway routes would be very busy and the trains are occupied by the locals. If you would like to travel to Iran during the below dates, you have to be aware of your travel time. If you are interested in traveling by train or you are using our Train Journeys, we suggest do not travel during those dates. When some of the listed two days holidays are fixed on the weekdays, the locals take more days off and attach them to the weekend. The weekend in Iran is Thursdays and Fridays.
