Azerbaijan Tours & Tailormade Holidays

Group Tours    Tailormade Options    Caucasus Tours

The 'land of fire', Azerbaijan was once home to the ancient Zoroastrian religion. The recently-developed Flame Towers of Baku are a testament to this past; these impressive modern structures tower over the medieval streets of Baku's Old Town, symbolising the striking contrast between old and new that makes Azerbaijan so special. The Old Town is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the iconic stone-carved Palace of the Shirvanshahs and the curious Maiden Tower which features on Azeri bank notes. You can also visit the ancient Ateshgah fire temple that is built on a site of natural gas and emits a constant holy fire. Head down the shores of the Caspian Sea to Gobustan National Park, home to over 6,000 ancient rock carvings which date back some 40,000 years and depict a wealth of scenes from the prehistoric ages.

Azerbaijan's landscape is diverse and full of incredible natural phenomena. Visit the Yanar Dag at night to witness a natural gas fire that has never been extinguished, burning continuously on the Absheron Peninsula. Nearly a third of the world's mud volcanoes are found in Azerbaijan. The unique sight of several active exploding mud piles littering the arid landscape of Gobustan is an unforgettable one. To learn more about the rich Azeri culture and heritage, visit the Heydar Aliyev Cultural Centre in Baku, an impressive example of Azerbaijan's progressive contemporary architecture.
