Azerbaijan

As you explore one of the least visited former Soviet Republics you will feel like a truly intrepid pioneer!  From the Caspian Sea to the Great Caucasus mountain range, explore the ‘Land of Fire’ with its great contrasts and contradictions.

Visit Baku, the oil boom city, with its gleaming skyscrapers and oil magnet mansions all within a beautifully preserved walled old city.  The pace of life outside of the city is considerably slower with its hidden fortresses in dense forests, semi-desert and mud volcanoes.  From the rural villages in the Caucasus Mountains to the big city, you will be sure to enjoy the remarkable hospitality of this nation.
