Hoz-e Soltan Lake Tour

The salty lakes are precious areas in deserts, as apart from their pure natural beauty, it’s proved that the sea salt has numerous undeniable advantages for body and it’s necessary that people use this kind of salt in their food. The salt lake, called Hoz-e Soltan, is 40 km away from north of Qom and 85 km away from south of Tehran. We start this tour from Tehran and move directly to the Lake. As we drive 35 km toward Qom, we get to a road, which leads us directly to the lake. Luckily, they have also built a road through the lake so we won’t get stuck in the swamp.

Generally, the lake area is about 240 km square but based on the season we visit the lake, its shape and width can vary. In seasons with less rain, the majority area of lake’s surface is covered by thick salt layers. But when there’s lots of rain and snow melting especially due to Alborz mountain which lies in the north of the lake, the water space gets larger. You may observe two distinct ponds which are parts of the lake. The west pond is called Hoz-e Soltan and the east one is named Hoz-e Mare. The water that flows to the lake first fills Hoz-e Mare and then Hoz-e Soltan.

Passing through the lake can be joyful with lots of fun. You will spend several hours longingly to walk to its end but you will definitely sink a bit and some playful salt will find their way into your clothes and shoes. You may also spot some bike riders who have come just to pass through the lake and enjoy the beautiful atmosphere around. The only animal living in the lake is a kind of shrimp called Artemia, because of its ability to adapt to the salty water. Of course, there are more animals living around the lake like rabbits, rats, deer, foxes, wolves, jackals, pigeons, geese, storks, flamingos, snakes and etc.

Another attraction of the deserts in Iran is caravansaries. After you visit the lake there’s also a chance to go to Ghale Sangi caravansary aged about 900 years. At last, we move back to the capital city, Tehran. The best season to visit the lake is the beginning of the spring and in the middle of autumn as there won’t be annoying coldness or bright sunlight.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Stunning views all in one day!

This tour around Tehran was brilliant, we went as a family of 4. The ride was comfortable. The area was all breathtaking and it was magnificent! I highly recommend taking your shoes off and walking around the salt lake.

Spectacular, bravo!

The entire experience was wonderful. Saw so much and took so many pictures. Our guide was really nice and shared some interesting facts about Tehran S history. The tour covered a lot of ground and took us to spots we might not have discovered otherwise.
