The study of the natural geography of Iran and also, the feasibility of each ecotourism the attraction for investment in our country indicates that ecotourism in Iran is a very unique and fruitful economic resource which has so far been untapped.
The exemplary geographical and seasonal diversity of Iran has provided very differently species of flora and fauna thus paving a way for the country to avail the benefit of being one of the few countries in the world with such a rich biodiversity. Apart from being home to the world›s largest lake in the north of the country, Iran also has a share in twelve hundred kilometers of the coastline in the Persian Gulf towards South. Other notable places are 50 Iranian lakes out of which about 18 are amongst the 59 known terrestrial biosphere reserves. Northwest dense forests of Mazandaran province are the last surviving forests in the world and hence are pretty ancient forests. Besides this, a wide spectrum of desert wilderness composing of factors such as winds, the amount of sand and the maximum temperature of air speaks volumes. Also, a variety of customs and a thousand-year-old nomadic lifestyle which is consistent with climatic conditions is another worthwhile factor illuminated in this article and at the same time forms an
important factor of ecotourism in Iran. As mentioned above, the benefits of having the most diversified climate mean that any investment in the field of ecotourism in Iran is fruitful considering the reliability of the resources. The potential of ecotourism in Iran is much greater as compared to other sectors because of the fact that it is not dependent on redundant factors for tourist attraction and as such there are no issues such as restrictions in cultural tourism market and lack of social context of recreational tourism. Noticeable points on ecotourism in Iran are as follows:
1. Geographical location;
2. Climate diversity;
3. Diversity of animal and plant (one of the first five countries in the world in terms
of natural and biological diversity);
4. High volume of roads and communication routes;
5. Variety of ethnic and tribal culture;
6. High potential to create institutions in the field of studies and ecological trips.
