From Aras Free Zone to Anzali Free Zone
Embark on a memorable five-day journey with Ares as you traverse Northern Iran, from the historic allure of Jolfa City to the serene shores of Anzali on the Caspian Sea, discovering rich culture and breathtaking landscapes along the way.
This travel route starts from Aras Free Zone and Jolfa City. Jolfa is located 140 kilometers north of Tabriz and welcomes tourists yearly, especially during Nowruz. Jolfa city has many historical monuments. Among them, we can mention the churches of St. Stepanos and Shepherd. Khaje Nazar Caravanserai is located near Jolfa, on the banks of the Aras River and on the way to St. Stepanos Church. Duzal Tower, Kordasht Bath, Asiab Kharabeh waterfall and Ushtabin Village are among the sights around Jolfa.
The next destination of this trip is Kaleybar. A city known as “Babak Castle”. To reach Kaleybar, one should take the border road on the edge of the Aras River, pass through the forests of Arasbaran and get to Kaleybar. To get to Kaleybar, you must go south along the border road.
Kaleybar is one of the cities of East Azarbaijan province, famous for having sour and delicious strawberry gardens. Relax with an overnight stay in Kaleybar.
On the morning of the second day of the trip, after seeing Babak Castle, leave for Pars Abad.
Moving towards Parsabad, you enter Ardabil province. In this city, you will see Dasht Moghan, the name of a green plain in the northernmost part of Ardabil province. Oltan Castle is also among the sights of Parsabad. Carpet weaving is one of the most important handicrafts of Parsabad. The nomads and villagers of the Maghan region in Ardabil province also produce exquisite “Verni” with native patterns.
On the morning of the third day, move towards Ardabil. The world heritage site “Sheikh Safiuddin Ardabili Mausoleum” in the heart of Ardabil city can be a good starting point for sightseeing. Don’t forget to try Ardabil’s delicious halwa in the streets leading to Sheikh Safi’s mausoleum. Shurabil Lake is located inside Ardabil city. But to discover more sights in Ardabil, you must visit around this city. So be sure to include one one-night stay in Ardabil in your plan.
On the morning of the fourth day, move towards Astara and leave the cool Ardabil for the humid shores of the Caspian. The first city ahead is Astara. A city of houses with clay roofs! On the way through the Hiran pass, you can ride the Hiran cable car, and upon reaching Astara, Astara market and Steel Lagoon will be your other choices. The magnificent Lawton waterfall, with a height of more than 100 meters, is waiting for the naturalist in the forests of Lundville.
