Looking to explore the stunning landscape, exotic wildlife and the cultural side of Iran? Showcasing attractive beaches, biologically diverse mangrove forests, Bandari villages, springs, hills, deep salt caves, valleys and delectable cuisines, this six day long itinerary takes in the three amazing isles in the Persian Gulf.

Qeshm Island
Located in southern Iran, Qeshm Island comes lauded as the largest island in the Persian Gulf. Occupying an area of 1491 square kilometers, the island has 60 Bandari villages. It is known for its hot and humid climate. While in winter, which is of short duration, the average temperature remains at 16 degrees Celsius, in summer it has an average temperature of 46˚C.

Tourists visit the Qeshm Island to see the sights that include mangrove forests, rocky coastlines, wonderful wildlife and the Unesco recognized Qeshm Island Geopark. Spread over an area of more than 2,000 square kilometers, the mangrove forests are known for their abundance of the Avicennia marina species. The mangrove forest (Hara marine forests) of Qeshm is a dazzling panorama of wildlife in a wonderful natural setting. The area is home to a wide range of fauna, including species of rodents, snakes, lizards and amphibian as well as other endangered species such as the deer. The lovely mangroves, also abound in avian population consisting of 173 species of birds. A whopping 4 million birds touch down the surface of Qeshm Island every year.

Hengam Island
Located two kilometers south of Qeshm Island, Hengam Island is characterized by rocky terrain which is home to several hills, caves and salt-pits. With a height of 105 meters above sea level, Nakas Mountain is the highest point of the uninhabited island of Hengam which was a prized possession of the colonial powers in their eras.

Hormoz Island
Despite its diminutive size the oval shaped island of Hormoz is the calling card for the tourists. Spread over an area of 42 square kilometers, the island is an ideal place to spend your time far from the madding crowd. The place retains the vestiges of the colonial era inducing the Portuguese era fort that commands a magnificent view of the Persian Gulf.

Hormoz derives its name from the from the important harbor town of Hormuz (Ormus) which is 60 km away.

For most, Hormoz’s most compelling draw is its untouched scenic beauty. The island was known to the ancient Greeks as Organa (Όργανα).
