Gobustan Tour and Mad Volcanoes - tour to stone age

Gobustan Tour and Mad Volcanoes - tour to stone age

By Outdoor Caucasus
It is an excursion to Gobustan National Park and Museum, about 40 miles (64 km) southwest of the centre of Baku on the west bank of the Caspian Sea, to see the ancient petroglyphs. Gobustan is assumed one of the cradles of civilization, as ancient petroglyphs have been identified as belonging to the 12-8th century B.C. In addition to the Gobustan, we will also visit en route active (bubbling) mud volcano site. On the way back we can tour Bibi Heybet Mosque, a recreation of the mosque with the same name built in the 13th century but completely destroyed by the Bolsheviks in 1936.

    Khinalig- Galakhudat villages hiking tour
    Wonderful program, mountain is very beautiful and not too difficult to walk. Visiting the local house was the highlight of the day and food tasted amazing, i gained a good memory from this trip. Before arrival, staff checked and informed us about the weather and gave a good advice. The mountain guide “Zeyd” is so friendly, kind and very helpful. He’s well prepared and had everything in his backpack. Would love to visit and have him as our guide again.

    More than amazing: Muju - Lahij hiking tour!
    We sincerely would like to express our deep gratitude for the well-organized tour and for your support and care during the hike! Everything was very clear and understandable. The tour guide Tural provided feeling being taken care of, giving us the opportunity, space and time to enjoy the hike and not violating our boundaries. He is very attentive to the details that were not even mentioned in the tour description - meeting and drinking tea with the guide in the village of Lagich and dinner after completing the entire route in the second village. It gives a great feeling that leaves a special after taste and amazing memories. Our group of 3 had very different skill levels and we are grateful that the tour guide Tural waited some members with patience and showed the understanding for the youngest and slowest participants. We sincerely wish you new, interesting routes and friendly and easy clients!

    Best experience from Baku.
    We did this hike with Heydar. He was brilliant. Interesting guy and a good safe guide. Sadly the weather wasn’t great on our hike with rain & fog. So we didn’t see any views. However I’d was t still a really fun experience getting on the mountain & meeting the local families.

    Amazing trip with spectacular views
    The whole trip was organised professionally and the company was very helpful and flexible with the last minute changes of plan which we made due to the bad weather. Our guide was amazing. We spent the entire trip discussing history and culture of Azerbaijan and admiring breathtaking views. We have visited many places in Azerbaijan but this trip was definitely the most spectacular as regards the nature and landscape. If you hesitate between choosing a trip to Xinalig only and that one the later one is a much much better choice.

    Mud Volcano and Gabala
    This review is on behalf of my wife and her 2 friends. I travelled with 2 of my friends to Baku. Nurlan and Tural were just Amazing. My entire correspondence with organizing our tour was with Nurlan. He was quick with his reply and also took care of our transportation to and from the airport. He arranged a tour for us to see the Mud volcanos and Gabala since we had only 1day for sightseeing and wanted to see the scenic side of Azerbaijan. Tural was our tour guide and took care of us 3 girls. He is very knowledgeable and was patient with all our requests especially when we wanted to stop during our trip and take pics. In Baku it was very windy and cold. It does rain off and on which makes it very very cold. But as you go further away into the mountains it's less windy but the temperature drops to 3 degrees. We didn't mind the cold weather at all Though this was a short trip it was totally awesome. Thanks to Nurlan and Tural they were simply amazing

    Well organized trips and fabulous hiking experience!
    I arranged for a 3-day private tour covering some diverse landscapes and culturally rich places in Azerbaijan. It included the absolutely gorgeous Sheki with its rich heritage of silk road and not-to-be-missed mountains in Azerbaijan. The trip to Sheki is quite long, but absolutely worth it! The guide was knowledgable and helpful My highlight and making the choice of going with outdoor caucasus is the hiking from Khinalig to Galeykhudat with a local lunch. I also managed to include a visit and short hike to Khizi mountains. This was the best part of the whole experience, not only because of the the jaw-dropping beauty of the mountains, but also due to Masud, a young enthusiastic and super friendly guide who was a great companion! I had loads of fun with folks, including Seymour, the driver. I appreciated the vegetarian lunch option offered at Galeykhudat. Overall, I am so thankful to outdoor Caucusus for creating some great memories of this beautiful country. get outdoorsy with them!

    Beautiful hike between quiet mountain villages - unforgettable experience
    Amazing experience. We hiked in the beautiful mountains - very remote. Incredibly hospitable meal at a local family’s home. Such a memorable day. Our guide was fantastic.

    Best local guide
    We couldn't have asked for a better guide in Baku and then on our day trip up to the mountains. Tural was a knowledgeable, well organized and extremely kind guide. I felt like we saw a really authentic side of Azerbaijan and it was an unforgettable visit as a result. One tip: bring a warm layer to the mountains, it can get pretty windy! 10/10 recommend.

    Daytour to the caucasus - MUST DO!
    If you stay in Baku and like to experience the beautiful nature this is definitely the tour to do! And Outdoor Caucasus is defenitely the company to choose! Our guide Turlan and driver Jamil picked us up at our Baku hotel around 9am. The drive to the mountains takes 3-4 hours. Nevertheless as our friendly and competent guide gave us numerous interesting information the time passed quickly. As you leave glamorous Baku you drive through the suburbs, pass along smaller settelments and farms in the arid landscape. Reaching the small city of Quoba you turn towards the mountains and finally find yourself in the middle of a breathtaking scenery. The peaks here reach over 3000m, just short grasses and occasional shrubs grow here. Khinalig is the starting point of a 2-3h hike, which although it offers stunning views and experience of nature is easy to accomplish. It ends at Gleykhudat with admittance to the house of a local family and a good tasting homecooked lunch. What a difference between the modern life in Baku and these isolated villages. After a short hike back to the car it‘s another 3h back to Baku, reaching it around 9pm.Just expect driving in Azerbaijan to be a bit wilder than probably at your home. Great thanks to Turlan and Jamil! To repeat myself: a definite must do tour!

    Easily the absolute best tour I’ve ever been on!
    I can’t overstate the phenomenal experience we had on this tour. Nurlan and Jamal from Outdoor Caucuses provided us with what is without a doubt the best tour I have been on in almost 30 years of traveling around the world. Their natural charisma, knowledge and wonderfully amiable and good natured manner was the perfect fit for two guys in a very foreign country who had trepidations about touring Azerbaijan. What we thought might be a dreadful experience turned out to be one of the happiest experiences ever. I understand how hyperbolic I might sound, but there’s no other honest way to extoll the phenomenal experience Nurlan and Jamal provided us. And having one man solely in charge of driving and the other dedicated to talking and explaining everything added a sense of safety. Nurlan provided all the confidence we needed to make the 6 mile trek to Galakhudat towards the top and enjoy an authentic home cooked meal. From their gentle and easy-going friendliness to the food they provided us to their dedication to our safety, sightseeing enjoyment and their professionalism, we wish we never had to have different tour guides anywhere in the world. Yes, the scenery and cultural experience are breathtaking, but Nurlan and Jamal were truly the engine that made everything an unforgettable life experience. We want to come back! Please don’t just take my word for it.

    outstanding trip with excellent tour guides
    Couldn't be better to travel without them! No matter the hiking or city tour, both guides are knowledgeable to share historic stories and enrich our experiences. Driver is in good skill and transport us to Georgia without any issues :)

    Friendly, cooperative and well informed staff
    Outdoor Cacusus is run by Nurlan and Tural both of whom are very cooperative, friendly and are very well aware of locations in AZ. We had such a great time that we already did 2 trips in AZ with them and are planning a 3rd one. The team is always on their feet to ensure that their guests have the best time. They are extremely accommodating and are always ready to prepare / modify the itinerary as per our preferences while ensuring that we do not miss anything worthwile. After 2 amazing trips, it almost feels as if we have a family in AZ waiting for us with smiling faces!
  • BrijSutaria
    The most professional company in AZ
    Have travelled to so many places but never met such a professional travel agency. They have everything planned for you. Even the smallest detail such as Indian preferences are taken care of. Hats of to Nural , Tural and entire team for planning evey detail of the trip. They know the country so well that they take you to places which we have never seen in any itinerary or online on places to visit. And those places are really mesmerizing.

    Professional company and great team
    We took group tour from this company. Especially wanted to enjoy the winter season in Azerbaijan. We did not much about this country and its history. Guide explained us so many things about the history of this beautiful country that were really cool. Thanks Outdoor Activity company. You are really number one. I invite all the tourist s to choose this company for being safe and enjoying.

This trip I was booked by Azerbaijan Tourism LLC.It is the best travel company .The
Mercededs van was comfortable and the guides was nice and friendly.We start by visit Mad Volcanoes by the Russian car Lada.It was cool the driver was drive qickly in the sand,I touch the mud it have (Urea,Praffin, sulfur, magnesium and zinc) you can take mud free.But,most people do not bring bottle.So,The drivers buy mud bolltes by 30$.

After the mud volcano we went to the Gobustan National Park it was cool and we saw art of the stone ages.This tour not for everyone because you walk in the rocks and it slppery.

It is fantasic and highly recommonded.
