Azerbaijan

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

Nestled between the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian Sea, this mystical Land of Fire is a fascinating country to explore. Standing at the crossroads of several tremendous empires, Azerbaijan has been a part of several of the Achaemedian, Sassanid, Ummayid, Oughur Turkic and not least, Soviet Russia empires. Rich deposits of natural gas, its Caspian coast, and a strategic gateway to both Europe and Asia, have made it much sought after for centuries.

Azerbaijan is one of the few countries worldwide on which the Zoroastrian faith has had such a profound and lasting impact. Visit ancient temples of fire-worship and explore the ancient petroglyphs that exist on the outskirts of Baku. Relatively unknown is the critical role Azerbaijan played in establishing the Nobel brothers in the oil industry – one of whom went on to found the Nobel Prize Foundation. Our Exeter International Extraordinary Experience offers an exclusive tour of the Nobel family’s home in Baku, recently restored to its former glory. Peel back the layers of this ancient and mysterious land with Exeter International.
