GUARANTEED DEPARTURE WEEKEND TOURS TO COUNTRYSIDE

We’d like to introduce to our customers a new service with the main objective to introduce tourists with traditional village life in Azerbaijan. These are small group tours to Azeri countryside to experience the traditional daily life in remote corners of Azerbaijan, to get a genuine feeling of Caucasus, to see the day to day routine of ordinary people leaving in traditional way as their ancestor did for many centuries. You’ll be rewarded by breath-taking panoramas, picturesque villages, green gardens, fascinating culture, local people and spectacular scenery. 

Due to the individuality of our itineraries, each tour is usually offered once a week - on Saturday (tour days Saturday and Sunday). However, the weekday tours are not impracticable if there are at least 6 people in the group. The trips are conducted in English.

This is a good opportunity to live the real countryside life during your visit to AZ. The tours are off-beaten track, avoid the touristy places, and we are pretty sure that you won’t find similar offer with any other travel company. Besides you would be pleasantly surprised by the low cost. We just want all the guests - tourists, expats and everybody else as well - to come to see the traditional rural life of Azerbaijan, as well as see the beauties of its nature. 

The tours are mainly to the North-West and Northern regions that by common view are the most picturesque in terms of nature and panoramic vistas. The visits are to Gabala, Lahic, Quba, Xinalyg depending on the itinerary. Overnight in local house in Vandam village. Furthermore, we also organise tours to Ismailli, Shaki, Gakh, Balakan, Lankaran, Guba (staying in other villages) and etc.
