Iran tour recommendation in December
Qeshm Island with much warmer weather and its nice beaches and natural attractions is really a wonderland and definitely a good destination in Iran during December. While you are in this island you can explore:
“Hara”, which is a sea forest with Mangrove trees, growing in salty water. “Hara” is where 1.5% of world’s birds and 25% of Iran’s birds migrate to, annually. You can see the mangrove trees and different kinds of birds by renting a boat and moving between the little islands covered with mangrove trees and other southern plants.
Darreye-setaregan” (Stars valley) ,which is a vast area full of weird natural sand towers shaped by the wind, is a unique attraction of Qeshm Island. According to a local myth the shape of this land is the cause of a star falling down on the ground. Strolling between these sand towers will give you a surreal feeling.
Yazd, known as the city of sun, is one of the most touristic cities in central Iran. Yazd’s Jaame mosque with delightful tile works, “Amir-chakhmaq” square known for its intelligent symmetrical structure and a Zoroastrian fireplace with a 1500 year old fire burning in, are some of beautiful cultural attractions in Yazd. Walking in old alleys, visiting Old Iranian houses with “baadgir” (wind-catchers) on top and tasting Yazd traditional delicious sweets are highlights of visiting Yazd.

“Shabe Yalda” (Yalda night), the longest night of the year (December 21), has been celebrated for thousands of years. Families and friends gather, read Hafez poems, play Iranian music and enjoy being together. Pomegranate (the heaven’s fruit as Iranians believe) nuts, watermelon and homemade sweets are Yalda night essentials.
