Depending on the season you travel and your fitness level we can offer the best possible journey. We have been active in this area for some time now and have been performing some hiking and cycling tours from moderate to strenuous difficulty levels which are published on our website.

Then you will go to our bike storage to choose your desire mountain bike and find your sized helmet and other equipment. We have different size of hardtail mountain bikes. We will start mountain biking at 8 am. We have to cycle on the paved road up a village in the mountain to reach the beginning of the canyon. We will start from 1700 m height and pedal up to 2400 m. The first 15 km is an asphalt road and we will get around 700 m height. On the way, we have a couple of stops on the road to rest and see the beauties of the nature on the road. The road has a good view of mountain scenery and there is a great place for photography and see the entire areat. Also, we have one stop in an interesting cave museum on our way to the canyon. After all ascending part, we start our adventure mountain biking from a village around 2300 m height which is the entrance to a huge canyon through a single track road. We are mostly cycling alongside of the river and in some parts, we have to carry our bikes as there is no track on the road. In mid-way, there is a beautiful waterfall to stop and have packed lunch there. Also, we have to cross a few times the rivers and getting wet which is the excited part of our adventure. There is 10 km downhill biking through the canyon and we will decent around 500 m. The river ends to a village where we will stay the night there. We are staying in the local house and after taking a shower and rest, will have dinner in the house. (B, L, D)

Day 2: Long trekking in Central Alborz protected area

We will rise up early morning at dusk. For this day a longer and tougher route has been chosen. We will go on the ridges to have a better view of the area. After drinking a fresh coffee, we prepare our day pack and start trekking from the village. You will carry your packed lunch and breakfast and we will kick the road towards the top. There are a few mountains around the area which we will consider one of them for moderate trekking to reach the summit. The mountains are close to each other and if the weather is clear you can see Damavand Mountain. The altitude of the summit is between 2950-3000 m, this means that we will hike up around 1200m from the starting point. Most of the route is on mountain ridges and we will traverse through many mountains. We will stop on the way for breakfast and will resume trekking till noon time to achieve the top. After taking a rest and having lunch at the top we will start descending to return to the village.We will arrive in the late afternoon.
