Trip Notes

Our company provides bikes and helmets to rent for this tour for €40.00. We offer cross-country MTB (S, M, L and XL sizes), 26 & 27.5 wheel sizes.

 

Many travelers visiting Tehran miss the chance of seeing its countryside while there are great offerings around Tehran for adventure/cultural tourists. There are ski resorts, wildlife, protected areas, rock climbing opportunities, seasonal ice climbing and mountain biking areas around Tehran. It would be a good idea to escape Tehran and relax in the villages nearby for a couple of days. In the village you will stay in this program you will experience fresh weather and calmness forgetting the pollution and noise of Tehran. The altitude of the village is around 2000 m from sea level covered by mountains of Central Alborz. 

In autumn, the weather is a bit cold and nature's color changes, making one of the best seasons for biking between villages. We will pick you up from your hotel in the afternoon heading to the village an hour away from the capital. First day is just relaxing and arrival. The next day, you will have a full day biking on a combination of paved and dirt roads. 

Itinerary

  • Depart from Tehran to Lavasanat in the afternoon by a private vehicle. You will be picked up from your hotel at 17:00. It takes only one hour to reach to the village. Upon your arrival, you will get relaxed in our local place and then prepare for a short walk in the village. You will enjoy the birds singing and the river. After sightseeing and photography in the village, you will be back to the house preparing the dinner. Sleeping is in a shared room on Iranian traditional style mattress.

  • You will rise up early morning. After morning coffee and breakfast, you will be transferred to the beginning point of biking and get your bikes and start the journey towards the mountain. We will have a 35 km road cycling as a loop. On the road we will have a couple of stops in viewpoint and we have time for photography and short rest in those spots. Also, you will have a great view of few high peaks of the central Alborz Mountains on the road. Most part of the road is asphalt road and there is a short dirt road part via a small forest. We will cycle through backroads between villages and the end of this circle route take us to a beautiful small lake. If the weather will be good we do swimming in the lake. Afterwards you will continue biking towards the starting point.  After a short rest, the driver will pick you up to Tehran in the evening
