Here are some of our eco-adventure Iran tours:
Skiing at Dizin Ski Resort
Dizin Ski Resort is known as the best ski resort in the Middle East with fresh and powdery snow for almost 5 months during a year, and very good facilities. This resort is reachable by driving 70 kilometers from Tehran and has twenty-three different ski runs (totally 75 kilometers skiing route). The Dizin Ski Tour of PackToIran is a 4-day tour which starts from Tehran and includes accommodation at hotel or chalet by the resort, private airport transfers and Tehran-Dizin transfer, and four days Dizin Ski Resort entrance fee. This tour doesn’t include ski equipment and skiers can rent standard equipment at the resort. What makes skiing in Iran so amazing is its reasonable price sometimes even more reasonable than skiing in your own country and also the chance of visiting the cultural highlights of Iran in other cities after skiing.
Dizin Ski Tour is the best choice for winter, as it is not the high season in Iran and you can find cheap flights and receive good services with better price than spring.
