Depending on the season and the areas you plan to visit, you need to pack accordingly.Spring and autumn are quite short seasons in Iran, between the heat of summer and the more changeable and often cold weather of winter. Winter temperature often falls below freezing, while summers, can be unpleasantly hot, especially for women. In the northern coastal areas of the Caspian Sea climate is mild and humid. The southern parts and the Persian Gulf region have always a hotter climate than Central Iran. North West Iran is about 10- 15C cooler than the rest of Iran.You may tour Iran in anytime of the year depending on where you wish to visit, but generally it is doable.All seasons have their own attractions.

In the winter and cold months take enough warm clothes especially if you are going to visit western and north western regions. For the summer pack light clothes with bright colors. If you have planned to visit Caspian Sea, don’t forget the rainy days expecting you. Here is a packing list consisting most of the essentials you need to consider when packing for Iran:

  • Lightweight, easily washable clothing
  • An umbrella may come in handy especially when traveling near the Caspian Sea.
  • Several photo copies of the picture page of your passport to leave at the hotel desk if you prefer keeping your passport in your possession all the times, as hotel management like to hold your passport upon registration Do not forget your notebook.
  • In the summer pack several T-Shirts, white color is the best, a Sunhat Hat and a pair of sunglasses, a good sun block cream or lotion is also necessary. It is easy to get sun burnt.
