Travel to Tehran

I would like to go from Ankara to Tehran (Iran) by train. Is this train still running? If the train is not running, what travel options do you recommend from Turkey to Iran? Is there still a way over land?


Train services to Iran are still not available between Turkey and Iran (as of Jul 2016). You can follow details of Transasia Express and Van-Tarbiz train trains at Rail Turkey Travel.

Plane is available from Istanbul.

Bus services are available from several cities of Turkey (Istanbul, Ankara, Van, Agri) to Iran.
