If you want to try light programs around Gileboom homestay and save your energy for the rest of your trip, we would suggest you Observing Fishing Activities or Damkesh spring sightseeing programs. All of these programs are one-day excursion which you may walk to the Caspian Sea or take a taxi to drive you there. It is possible for Gileboom guests to join the fishing parties and experience it.
There are some other excursions such as visiting Tea factory; a kind of Industrial tourism to get familiar with the process of making Green and Black tea, the differences between organic and non-organic tea, and the harvest time of tea plants.
Another exciting program is Javaher-Dasht Safari; a safari with 4WD Jeeps to the middle of Hyrcanian mixed forests to reach a high-altitude plain, called as Jordasht or Javaher-Dasht (1900 m).
Eastern Guilan is famous for its variety of Handicrafts including; Feltmaking, Chadorshab-Weaving, Pottery, Bamboo and mat weaving, Woodturning, sculpture making, even Making Carpet.
Handicrafts play an important role in the tourism industry. When you travel to a country like Iran which is famous for its handicrafts, visiting workshops and artisans is one of the things to do.
It might be interesting, the thing happened to us; after visiting Mahtab Suzanduz who was a world famous needle worker in Sistan and Baluchistan Province, we decided to start a new chapter in our lives and give local artisans like her the recognition they deserve and what you see in Gileboom homestay is the result of that handicraft visit.
In Gileboom we provide the local community an opportunity to showcase and sell their hand-made products and crafts. The Products made by hand each have a story of their own and each crafted item, shaped, reshaped and mastered carefully results in unique art pieces that are slightly different from the other because no two handmade products can turn out exactly the same. You can still find some, still being used in our daily lives today.
