Cycling in Iran
Iran consists of distinctive lands and climate. The terrain includes mountains, deserts, forests and seas which give both beginner cyclists and adventurous mountain bikers so many choices. From the hot temperature of the Persian Gulf coast, (at sea level), in the south, to the Mt Damavand at 5,610 m, the highest mountain in the Middle East, there are a wide range of options for cycling.
You can choose to cycle:
on a road on one of the islands in the southern part of the Persian Gulf or have an adventure expedition by cycling across one of our deserts or if you are an experienced cyclist, the tough single-track mountain biking on the heights of the Alborz or Zagros mountains may be for you.
For advanced bikers, we can offer to ascend Mt Damavand with a Mountain Bike.
We offer various destinations for your adventure journey to Iran taking into account the challenging terrain, your riding experience, your fitness and endurance level and time of travel.
