Early in the morning, we will travel to the Pier and take a Fast Boat to Hormoz Island. When we arrive, we will travel by Tuk Tuk (a fun experience in a beautiful vehicle for transferring to Hormoz).

The combination of white salt and red soil is a fascinating and breathtaking natural phenomenon here.

Then, onwards to Rainbow Valley, the colorful mountains in shades of pink, red, blue, and yellow followed by the Valley of the Statues (Valley of Imagination, Valley of Sculptures). While you walk through the Valley of the Statues, you will hear the sound of Hang Dram or Santur (Persian musical instrument) played by young musicians.

We go to Laft Village, which has a reputation for wonderful sunrises, its wind-catchers, amazing structure, and golden wells that store clean water.

Day 5: Qeshm Island- Tehran

This morning we will explore Stars Valley, a wonderful phenomenon that is approximately two million years old, formed from the erosion of sand, stone, and soil.  This is a wonderous sight leaving one with the impression of having left Earth to visit another planet.

FAQ

  • What is the best time to visit Iran?

    The best time to visit Iran is normally from April to May and from September to early November. However, Iran, as a vast country is a destination for all four seasons. For instance, in July and August, the west and northwest of Iran are the best choices due to cooler weather, mixed with classic routes, such as Tabriz, Kurdistan, Kermanshah, and Hamedan. The months of November, December, January, and February are the best time for traveling to south Iran and visiting the islands of Qeshm, Kish, Chabahar, and Bushehr.

  • What is the main currency in Iran?

    The national currency in Iran is the Iranian Rial (IRR). However, due to the dramatic decrease in Iran’s currency value, Iranians informally use Toman to make daily transactions easier. Each Toman equals 10 Rials and you just need to omit one zero to find out the value in Toman.

  • Is it safe to travel to Iran?

    Iran is generally safe for foreign travelers and Iranians are well-known for their warm hospitality. But if you are still in doubt, let a licensed Iranian tour operator or travel agency organize a hassle-free tour for you.
