Kish Island - Qeshm Island- Hormuz Island

After arriving at IKA in the suburbs of Tehran, you will be transferred to Mehrabad Airport in Tehran to fly to Kish Island.
The island of Kish is full of amazing attractions that you should get to know during several trips. The sea water on the sandy beaches of this island is so clear due to the large amount of coral reefs around, that in some places the movement of colorful fishes can be seen clearly.
Beside the large number of hotels, entertainment-business centers, modern and diverse restaurants and coffee shops, the old part of Kish is located with the architectural features of the warm and southern regions of Iran, which are worth seeing.
We will visit the thousand-year-old and half-ruined ancient city of Harireh, which is located in the northern part of the island and includes various parts of the city, including the Pier of historical houses, Public bath, and industrial workshops. To rest and use the sun and swim on the beautiful beaches of the island, we will go to Ladies Pelage and finally, in order to enjoy the entertainment and beautiful night views of the island, we will have a short trip around the island with a cruise ship, which will be accompanied by live music and dinner.

Here you can see these amazing trees that can purify the salt water of the sea and grow. You can also see various migratory and native birds here.
Then we go to the launch-making workshop. The launch is a type of traditional wooden ship that is one of the indigenous crafts of the people of the south and is one of the largest handicrafts known in the world.
Finally, we will go to the Chahkooh Canyon, which is considered one of the natural wonders of Qeshm Island and has acquired an amazing shape due to the alluvial soil of the area and erosion due to the passage of seasonal surface water. Many consider the Chahkooh Canyon as the Iranian example of the Grand Canyon.
