Some suggestions on your April tour to Iran
- Cities are covered in fresh colors like green and pink, roads are beautiful and the nature is a great piece of art. So, we suggest you to choose road trips for moving between the cities you want to visit.
- The experience of visiting Shiraz during April is something that won’t be forgotten for a life time. Shiraz is known as the city of historical gardens like Eram, Afif-Abad, Delgosha and etc. Don’t you wonder where is this nice aroma coming from? This is the scent of sour orange blossoms spread all over the city in old alleys, gardens and even crowded streets. If you have a bird’s eye view over Shiraz, you will notice that this city is surrounded by mountains and covered with long standing cypress trees. Maybe that’s why Shiraz has been home to many world-famed poets like Hafez and Saadi and the people who are living in this city are so hospitable, with a calm and joyful lifestyle.
- Visiting vast fields of wild tulips, alive rivers and springs on Zagros heights in Kohgiluye-va-boyir ahmad province is a good choice if you prefer to have an outdoor tour. You can also join a group for a professional mount climbing in this world-known mountainous land.
Events or Festivals
“Golabgiri” festival is held in some cities like Kashan, Lalehzar (near Kerman) and Meimand (near Shiraz) during April. “Golabgiri” is the process of extracting rose water with traditional sweating methods. Iranians use this fragrant liquid in making traditional Sweets, ice-creams and syrups.
