About Ardabil

Ardabil has the perfect balance between culture, modernity, and a natural scene which draws hundreds of travelers in year-round. This city houses lovely hot springs where you can easily spend a whole evening relaxing, some of which are hidden deep within the hills, while others have spas and wellness centers built around them. Ardabil is also famous as a natural refuge with green plains that make for wonderful camping and hiking destinations. At the end of the day, hit the town and let the nightlife hit you back! At nights here, friendly party people are shopping, eating, playing music, and having fun all round town, so brace yourself for a happy crowd with lots of questions and selfie requests. Wondering what to take home? Ardabil is famous for its honey (called Sabalan Honey) but when it comes to sweets, you can only have a bite of them right then and there. We suggest you definitely try Kaymak (a sweet cream made from fresh milk), and Qand Churiyi (a soft cookie made from rice flour.)
