Remote Lands is delighted to announce the launch of Azerbaijan, completing a trilogy of exciting new travel destinations in the Caucasus region. Join us in exploring this enigmatic, lesser-visited nation, which stretches from the Caspian Sea to the Caucasus Mountains, and contains thousands of years of history and culture on the Silk Road. Below we will introduce three new Azerbaijan sample itineraries, designed by our experts to inspire you. 


All three destinations in the Caucasus region — Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia — are open to vaccinated travelers without quarantine. You can learn more about visiting all three countries in one journey here.


The latest in our Classic itinerary series is the perfect introduction to Azerbaijan. Over an eight-day journey, enjoy the very best in this eastern Caucasus nation including its contrasting and up-and-coming capital, Baku, the ancient Silk Road city of Ganja, and the Unesco World Heritage Site of Sheki, famed for its historic caravanserai, Khan’s Palace and peerless carpets. 


Shop for artisanal goods from master craftsmen, learn the reason behind the name “Land of Fire” by investigating the eternal flames of Ateshgah Fire Temple, discover the primordial petroglyphs of Gobustan State Reserve and its iconic mud volcanoes, plus much more, all in one journey. 

VIEW ITINERARY TWO WEEKS ACROSS AZERBAIJAN Dive into Azerbaijan on this immersive and in-depth adventure, which includes both the highlights and the hidden gems, plus some idiosyncratic insights into the mysterious country. This journey features a jaunt down to Lankaran in the subtropical south, where you’ll explore tea plantations, national parks and meet the ethnic Talysh people who live in the region. There is also a very special off-the-beaten-path trip to Nakhchivan, a fascinating autonomous republic between Azerbaijan and Iran, dating back to the times of the Quran. For travelers with less time our 10-day itinerary, without Nakhchivan, will also suit those looking for an in-depth cultural experience.  VIEW ITINERARY BAKU CITY BREAK

Discover Azerbaijan's multi-layered capital city, Baku, and its surroundings on this quick four-day sojourn. From its perch on the western shores of the Caspian Sea, Baku has a long history of prosperous trade along the Silk Road. Relics of this era are found today in its Unesco-listed center ​​Icheri Sheher, while sublime works of modern architecture, like the Zaha Hadid-designed Heydar Aliyev Center remind us of more recent ‘oil booms’. Explore all this plus restaurants and galleries, and nearby attractions like Ateshgah Fire Temple and Gobustan State Reserve. This itinerary is suited to anyone doing a stopover in Baku, or wanting a ‘flavor’ of Azerbaijan while visiting other Caucasus countries, or anyone visiting the city for the Grand Prix. The street race runs along the Caspian Sea shoreline before winding past the medieval walls of Icheri Sheher, making it one of the most visually impressive circuits.
