An exciting journey to one of the world's least visited destinations

Reiserute

  • Day 1: (Day 14 of AXC itinerary) Overnight train to Baku
    Say goodbye to the group, before enjoying free time in Tbilisi. In the afternoon we transfer to the railway station for the overnight journey to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan. Travelling in four berth, second class cabins.Sleeper train
  • Day 2: Arrival; sightseeing in Baku
    Morning arrival into Baku, Azerbaijan's fine capital on the shores of the Caspian Sea. This is a city of huge contrast, undergoing monumental change, as money from oil and natural gas pours into the economy. Here we have a guided sightseeing tour, highlights include the Carpet Museum and the UNESCO listed old town dating back as far as the 10th century. We also visit the Palace of Shirvan-Shahs, Maiden Tower and the ancient Lezgi Mosque. The evening is free to enjoy the city’s nightlife; we recommend a stroll along the beautifully restored Baku Boulevard running along the shoreline, where there are dozens of cafes and restaurants to enjoy.Central Baku Hotel or similar
  • Day 3: Absheron Peninsula & Gobustan
    Full day excursion. Firstly we visit Gobustan, 30 miles southwest of Baku, famous for its 2000-year-old rock drawings, followed by a visit to the mud volcanoes. In times of heavy rain, the visit to the volcanoes is not always possible. In the afternoon we visit the Ateshgyakh Fire Worshippers Temple (18th century) located within Greater Baku in the village of Surakhany. Here people worshipped fire, seeking protection against adversity and oppression and begging it for happiness and well-being. These fires are believed to be where Azerbaijan got its name - meaning ‘Land of Fire'. We then transfer to Absheron Peninsula to observe the unique burning mountain of Yanar Dag. Here we learn about the history of oil in Azerbaijan and its use in ancient times, right up to the present. Again the evening is free to enjoy the delights of Baku, we recommend one of the rooftop bars with views across the Old Town to the Flame Towers shinning bright over the whole city.Central Baku Hotel or similar
  • Day 4: End Baku
    Transfer to the airport. There may be time to enjoying some additional sightseeing in Baku, depending on your flight time. However, most flights from this region to the UK depart very early.

Viktig Informasjon & destinasjonsvideo

The trip destination

Food
2 breakfasts included. Unlike Georgia and Armenia, the cuisine of Azerbaijan is more heavily influenced by the nation’s Muslim neighbours in Turkey and Iran. Azerbaijan is famous for vegetables and greens used seasonally in their dishes. Fresh herbs, including mint, coriander, dill, basil, parsley, tarragon, and watercress are very popular and often accompany main dishes. The Caspian Sea is home to many species of fish, including the sturgeon. Black caviar from the Caspian Sea is one of Azerbaijan’s best-known delicacies well sought after in other parts of the world, including former Soviet countries. Kebabs and shashlik, including lamb, beef, chicken, duck and fish (baliq) are very popular and often served with a tart pomegranate sauce called narsharab. Dried fruits and walnuts are used in many dishes. Coffee is not always available, tea (always black) is very much the national drink. Alcohol is available throughout Baku but can be quite pricey.
