Birds and Wildlife of Iran -12 days

Birds and wildlife of iran

Enjoy travelling to Iran with fantastic and unforgettable tours with any budget from economic to luxury. Iran cultural tours, religious tours, Iran nomad tours and adventures in the wild nature.
Since Iran has a variable climate with four distinct season we are offering a vast spectrum of tours in Iran and a variety of services that enable you to experience the best of Iran.

The wetlands of Iran are globally significant. Large populations of migratory birds winter at these wetlands or use them on their way to and from wintering areas in Africa or the Indian Sub-continent. The marshes of the south Caspian lowlands in Iran’s northwest are particularly important for over 20 species of ducks and geese while the mud flats of the Persian Gulf coast are of critical importance for shore birds, gulls and terns. A variety of marine mammals is observed in the southern waters of Iran.
It is worth knowing that giraffes once grazed alongside wild sheep in the fields around present-day Maragheh in Azerbaijan. A similar sight today would be unusual, to say the least. Dinosaur footprints have been found north of Kerman, further evidence of the palaeontological diversity possessed by Iran.

All seasons have their own attractions. Thanks to such a diverse geography, you can have all kinds of climates in any season in Iran. In general, spring and autumn are the best time to visit Iran even if the weather may be a little uncertain with short lapses into either the cold of winter or the heat of summer. More accurate is mid-April to early June, and late September to early November. Also you can also relive the charming atmosphere in the Persian Gulf islands during January and February. These are called the high seasons of tourism. In other months of the year, in some areas, there will be very hot or very cold for those who aren’t familiar with such extreme weather conditions.
