Azerbaijan

A small country rich in contrast


Spanning both Europe and Asia, Azerbaijan is a fairly new country—though one with roots dating back to antiquity. It's barely the size of Maine, with mountains that give way to coastal plains and thousands of tiny rivers that feed into the Caspian Sea. Oil plays a prominent role in the country's economy, with cities like Baku growing at unprecedented speed. Still, remote age-old villages remain just a short drive away. We love to share both ancient and modern with GeoEx travelers.

Ancient and Modern Buildings in Azerbaijan by GeoEx

The options for a private trip in Azerbaijan are just as varied as the country, and GeoEx's travel planning experts are here to help create your dream itinerary. We recommend spending time in Baku, the nation's capital and one of its many UNESCO World Heritage Sites: its medieval heart bears witness to its rich Middle Eastern heritage and Silk Road history. You might also like to explore the acclaimed rock engravings at Gobustan and the arts and crafts at Sheki, a lovely architectural preserve. There are striking mosques, caravanserais, castles, palaces, and natural wonders to explore, and some fantastic people to meet. See the sample itinerary to get inspiration or give us a call to discuss the possibilities.
