TRAVELS

Explore Azerbaijan

Get to know Azerbaijan, located between the shores of the Caspian Sea and the mountains of the Caucasus, with the best Azerbaijan tours to the main sights of the country. Start in Baku, wandering through the narrow streets of the Old Town or climbing up to the towering modern skyscrapers, or head out to the royal palaces in Sheki or the carpet workshop in Quba. There’s no shortage of things to do in Azerbaijan - explore the best with a small group tour. Even with the many modern aspects in Baku and around the country, Azerbaijan has preserved many traditions and historical places. Old Baku is full of narrow cobbled streets that open into residential courtyards, while the newer parts of the city are all wide boulevards and modern architecture. Head out to Kabala or Nakhichevan, two of the oldest cities in the Caucasus, or for a little color, visit the carpet workshop in Quba or see the complex stained glass windows of Sheki. For nature lovers, Azerbaijan presents a number of great opportunities. There are a number of sandy beaches along the Caspian Sea, plus thermal springs and salt cave treatments in the mountains (check out the resorts in Masalli, Naftalan, and Ganja). Much of Azerbaijan is also covered by mountains, including the rocky peaks that have kept the tiny village of Khinalug isolated for millennia. The best Azerbaijan tours include a little bit of everything, from nature to culture and back again. Book one of our best tours to make the most of your trip: get to know people from around the world, split some costs with other travelers, and use the years of experience that our guides bring to visit and learn about Azerbaijan’s best tours and sights. Or you can book a private tour to fill your time in Azerbaijan with trips to places that interest you, on your own schedule. Al Hosni Travel and Tourism will be with you every step of the way to ensure that your trip is the best Azerbaijan tour possible.
