The Flame Towers, Baku, Azerbaijan


A perfect ingredient for a multi-country tour through the area. Make sure you add the petroglyphs of Gobustan – rock art dating back to the 10th millennium BC – to your tailor-made itinerary.

Once a relatively insignificant region of the Caucasus Mountains, Azerbaijan has emerged as one of the world’s foremost oil-producing nations.

Taking in the magnificent Caucasus Mountains to the north, the lush green valleys of the south and large swathes of arid semi-desert in between, Azerbaijan is a beautiful country with superb scenery, although it remains virtually unknown to the average traveller.

Why we like Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan in itself is probably too small to warrant a holiday on its own; however, it combines well with Georgia and Armenia, or for a longer journey, take the ferry across the Caspian to Turkmenistan. It is a fascinating country with an excellent choice of hotels and one which never fails to surprise.

What to expect on your Azerbaijan holiday

Baku, the capital, lies on the shores of the Caspian Sea and has transformed itself into a glittering city of glamorous hotels and interesting museums. Nearby, the Absheron Peninsula is covered in oil wells, but a visit will also reveal a much older link to the Zoroastrians, for whom fire is an important symbol and who have erected temples around burning natural gas vents in the ground.
