In countless places in this fascinating piece of land between the Western World and the East, natural fires are shooting up from the ground. Azerbaijan is also fascinating due to its diversity: as many as nine of the world's 13 climate zones are found in the small country on the Caspian Sea.
In the bustling capital of Baku, traditions are blended with state-of-the-art glass facades and ambitious construction projects. The whole country has always been in a field of tension: between tradition and modernity, East and West, Russia, Persia and Europe.
In hardly any other country in the world are there such large temperature differences as in Azerbaijan, which occupies nine of the world's 13 climate zones in an area not much larger than Austria's.
The best time for round trips in Azerbaijan is spring and autumn. Summer is the perfect time for outdoor activities in the Caucasian mountains. In winter skiing is possible in the resorts Shahdagh and Tufandagh.

The small country on the Caspian Sea, the largest lake in the world, offers numerous other highlights that we will offer on our tours starting in 2019. For example, the enclave of Nakhichevan, which in contrast to the Azeri heartland borders on Turkey, or the ancient city of Shamakhi, which has been inhabited since the 5th century BC.

We had a great group. I still have contact with all six. We have already agreed that we will come back next year. Then it will be a wine tour through Kakheti.
