About the Tour

Azerbaijan allows you to explore the UNESCO World Heritage sites, fire temples & mosques, handicrafts, hill stations & the natural beauty, cute towns with old-world charm, culture & traditions, rock-art & mud-volcanoes, along with true European vibes without causing a hole in your pocket!

Embarking on a journey to Azerbaijan unveils a symphony of experiences that seamlessly weave together ancient history, modern innovation, diverse landscapes, warm hospitality, and a vibrant cultural tapestry. Did you know that Azerbaijan is also known as the “Land of Fire”? The natural gas seepages keep igniting fires, as seen in Yanar Dag, a continuously burning mountain of natural gas. This phenomenon, along with historical fire worship, inspired the nickname

Did you know that the world’s very first oil well was drilled in Azerbaijan, in 1846, inaugurating the country’s prolific oil industry?

In the capital city of Baku, the skyline is a mesmerizing blend of old and new, where the UNESCO-listed Old City, with its labyrinthine streets, historic mosques, and palaces, coexists harmoniously with the contemporary marvels like the Flame Towers and the futuristic Heydar Aliyev Center. This architectural duality reflects Azerbaijan’s ability to embrace its rich past while propelling itself into the future. The cityscape, particularly along the Caspian Sea, transforms as the sun sets, creating a captivating play of lights that makes Baku one of the most photogenic cities globally.

Roaming around in the Nizami street of Baku and flirting with cafes, brands, & street performances gives a true European vibe (that too on a budget), and makes a tourist wish to keep coming back to Azerbaijan.

A trip to Azerbaijan is incomplete without visiting Gabala. In the summertime, Gabala, nestled amidst the lush greenery of Azerbaijan’s Caucasus Mountains, reveals its true beauty.

The landscape of Gabala transforms into a verdant paradise, with rolling hills, dense forests, and pristine lakes glistening under the warm sun. The ecstasy of visiting Tufandağ for cable car rides, Nohur Lake, and Yeddi Gozel Waterfall is undeniable during the summers!

Just a few miles away from Gabala, we have the beautiful town of Sheki which always comes as a very vintage surprise to tourists. Did you know that Sheki is the home to one of the oldest and most well-preserved caravanserais in the Caucasus region, the Sheki Caravanserai? Built in the 18th century, this historic inn served as a resting place for travelers and merchants along the ancient Silk Road. Sheki is also famous for the majestic Sheki Khan’s Palace, a UNESCO-listed site adorned with intricate frescoes and exquisite architecture.

Apart from offering UNESCO World Heritage sites, culture & tradition, metropolitan cities, pretty hill stations, and European vibes, Azerbaijan is also home to captivating mud volcanoes! These geological wonders are scattered across the country region, with some of the most famous ones located in the Gobustan area, about 70 kilometers southwest of Baku. The mud volcanoes of Gobustan create a surreal lunar landscape, with bubbling mud pools and cones spewing out mud and gases. These mud volcanoes are not only fascinating sites to visit but also contribute to scientific research, providing insights into geological processes and the Earth’s crust.
