Qazvin had been one of the capitals of Iran and many historic monuments attest to the significance of the city for Iranians. That is why Qazvin tours in our Iran Sightseeing Tours draw a lot of attention. However, there is another region in Qazvin Province which is as famous as the city of Qazvin. Alamut, the valley of assassins, the fort of eagles is a natural and historic oddity in Iran. The ominous reputation of the region as the center of power for one of the most feared military forces in history is only augmented by the unimaginable expanse of its valley and formidable mountains that strike one as the massive bodies of giants in hibernation. For years much of the glory of Alamut was hidden from the voracious eyes of nature-lovers due to the inaccessibility of its natural treasures. But now thanks to our Alamut Valley Hiking Tours, you have the rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the glory of a land with an ancient history and pristine nature. And as opposed to most of Alamut day tours, ours goes far beyond a quick visit to the Castle of Assassins. We embark our adventure in the capital. You will join a pro member of our team of Iran tour guides who will drive you to Zarabad village in the valley of Alamut, the starting point of our hiking tours. After a four hours’ drive, we will reach our destination. In the village we take accommodation in Seven Guesthouse in Alamut that is run by an amicable family. We will rest for a short while and drink a cup of herbal tea before lunchtime. After having a delicious meal, we will set off on our hiking adventure by visiting the scenic sights around the village including its wonderful orchards. Hiking in Alamut is an experience you will never forget, filled with sweet and sour taste of wild fruit, reviving spring waters and mind-blowing sights.three-day Alamut Valley hiking tour - Three-day Alamut Valley hiking tour reservation
It isn’t all about nature though. You will also visit Hassan-Sara, a historic hill known as one of the secret hideaways of the prominent revolutionary leader Hassan-i Sabbah and his fearsome entourage. Before the sunset we will come back to the village to visit its famous holy shrine. After a delicious local meal in the guesthouse we will have a good night’s sleep and be prepared for the second day of our tour. The next day we will visit the wonderful Ovan Lake, a couple of traditional villages and an extraordinary spring called Haft-Cheshmeh.
