Overview

Iran is one of the top prospective birding destinations for anyone looking for a unique experience. Birdwatchers have a strong desire to see endemic and rare species.

A high degree of climatic variability is a crucial component in the formation of Iran's diverse ecosystems and the provision of enormous wildlife sanctuaries for thousands of bird species. As we go from north to south, we encounter several climate zones. More over half of Iran's plateau is covered by desert and semi-arid areas. A third of Iran is mountainous, with a minor portion of the country made up of fertile plains.

During the bird migration season, Iran is home to around 540 species of birds, 340 of which are migratory birds, making it one of the top sites for birding with year-round opportunities. Birds such as the Iranian Ground-jay, Caspian Snowcock, Sind Woodpecker, White-throated Robin, and others can be found in Iran. Only the Ground-jay can be found in Iran.

TOUR

This five-day adventure begins in Tehran. You'll travel through the deserts of central Iran and the plains of the magnificent Touran National Park in search of uncommon birds and mammals such as the Persian Onager and Asiatic Cheetah. Our tour will transport you safely and cheerfully through the breathtaking surroundings of Ghale Bala Village and Reza Abad. Your lodging will put you right in the middle of the activity.

FAQs

How long before a trip should I book?
In high season months like April, May, September, and October hotels, tours and driver guides will be sold out very soon. Hence, it is better to book your trip as soon as you can.
Where and when does the tour start and end?
The tour starts in Tehran early morning by picking you up and finishes in Tehran late evening by drop off in your location.
Is the tour provided in other languages?
All tours and classes are conducted in English. However, if you’d like to have it in any other language, we can arrange for a translator upon an extra fee in any language required.
Is it possible to book this experience with some of my friends?
Our private tours are held between one person to large groups. You can even choose your fellow travelers by scrolling down 'travelers' tab at the right side of the page.
Is it possible to stay for longer/shorter than the mentioned time?
Sure. The time is the usual time for the tour, but it can be arranged for being shorter or longer.
Best time to do bird watching in Iran?
With the coming of fall and winter, a large number of migrant birds flock to Iran, creating breathtaking scenery. From late December to early March is the greatest time to go birding in Iran. However, other species, such as Hypocolius, are only visible during specific seasons of the year.
