Situated where Europe meets Asia, Azerbaijan presides over an extremely unique vantage point with Russian, Persian, and Ottoman influences conjuring the country that you’ll find today. This week-long Azerbaijan small group holiday takes you into the heart of a land that has long remained cloaked in mystery to provide cultural travelers with a legendary experience that they’ll never forget.
Starting in the capital, Baku allows a glimpse at the wealth that oil can bring alongside ancient architecture that’s more representative of the country’s much more traditional cultural heritage.
Continuing this Azerbaijan small group holiday takes you out of Baku and into the Absheron Peninsula, a landscape covered in spluttering volcanic mud. Follow your guide into the surrounding mountains and you’ll be invited to meet the communities living within the shadow of ancient mosques and mausoleums where traditional Azeri hospitality and heritage are never far behind.
This Azerbaijan small group holiday may be relatively short however, it packs a real cultural punch with visits to towns and villages, such as Guba, Shamakha, and Shekhi, offering a fascinating insight into a land that’s often misunderstood but very rarely forgotten.
Note: for those looking to take this Azerbaijan small group holiday even further into the unknown, ask us about flights to Nakhchivan, sandwiched between Iran and Turkey, for an even more adventurous experience, way off the typical tourist trail.
