Small Group Tours and Holidays in Azerbaijan
Is it Europe? Or is it Asia? The enigmatic nation of Azerbaijan is a land that defies neat categories, and has to rate as one of the more unusual countries on the Eurasian landmass. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Azerbaijan show you a land that is a curious mixture of the ancient and modern, with oil wealth giving rise to a capital where skyscrapers can be seen from medieval fortresses, and donkeys battle with luxury 4wd vehicles for dominance on the streets. It is not without reason that it is often known as the ‘land of fire’ – visit flaming mountains alight with underground gases and witness the bizarre spectacle of hot mud belching from the bowels of the earth. Azerbaijan isn’t all about odd natural phenomena though – with a rich heritage and a culture that borrows from Iran, Russia and everywhere in between you can lose yourself in old palaces, unique temples and ancient churches, all the time welcomed by the friendly smiles of the Azeri people. Azerbaijan is brimming with history, is fiercely modern, and is unlike anywhere else you will have visited.
