Caspian Iran - Iran
The Caspian coastline with sandy beaches giving way to wide open steppes, thickly forested foothills and the stiff peaks of the Alborz mountain range, the lush vegetation and spectacular natural scenery, along with the humid summers and mild winters, offer a striking contrast from city life and the dry interior.
The landscape, climate and natural environment are the best areas in Iran for outdoor activities such as trekking, mountain climbing, camping and horse riding, and with a broader range of biological diversity: there is excellent potential for eco-tourism of all kinds.
The three provinces of Gilan, Mazandaran and Golestan fronting the Caspian Sea-the world's largest lake, are dotted with resort complexes, leisure facilities and holiday homes.
You will marvel at the farming and fishing villages of the region where traditional lifestyles, customs and architecture survives to this day.
