Not quite Europe, not quite Asia - Azerbaijan, the land of fire, is a one-of-a-kind destination that refuses to be pigeonholed. From the medieval streets of Sheki to dazzling 21st-century architecture in Baku, bubbling mud volcanoes in Gobustan to the Silk Road village of Lahij, it’s a land that will both inspire and amaze. When combined with a visit to Georgia, home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in Eastern Europe, you have all the makings of an unforgettable journey.

Discover the highlights of Azerbaijan and Georgia on this 14-day tour of Baku, Tbilisi, Sheki and beyond. Be surprised by the contrast of old and new in beautiful Baku; take in the UNESCO-listed Maiden Tower and Shirvanshahs Palace; wander through the cobbled streets of the charming old town; and delve into the country’s intriguing past at the National Museum of History. Visit Yanar Dag on the Absheron Peninsula, where a natural gas fire has blazed for over 60 years; see the mud volcanoes and 6,000 year old rock carvings of Gobustan; and admire incredible mosaics and stained-glass windows of Sheki. Cross the border into Georgia and explore ancient Sighnaghi town, overlooking lush green vineyards; visit the UNESCO listed churches of Mtskheta, the ancient capital of Georgia; explore the rock-hewn monastery of Vardzia; travel by 4x4 vehicles to Gergeti Holy Trinity Church, and more.
