Tourism industry as a sensitive industry to climate is directly affected by climatic change. Climatic changes can develop or stagnate tourism industry. Sustainable natural environment is a kind of sustainable tourism. In this study, the annual temperature parameters of Hamedan were analyzed in order to determine any probable climate changes during a period from 1976 to 2015. Thus a series of annual temperatures were investigated based on NRMC method. The obtained data were significantly meaningful. In the NRMC method where the data were divided into two areas, the minimum and maximum data as well as the average temperature had all a rising trend and the presence of significant changes in the time series had an increasing abrupt slope too. In order to have a long term planning for tourism and regarding the past trend of temperature changes in Hamedan as well as the data obtained from Lars – WG, it was shown that the temperature in Hamedan has had a significantly meaningful trend during the last forty years and it was predicted that this trend will continue in next twenty years. Thus tourism attractions in Hamedan can affect climatic changes. So the temperature increase and its consequences must be considered in tourism planning for future to achieve a permanent development in this regard.
