Outdoor Recreation in Azerbaijan

Outdoor Recreation in Azerbaijan

In recent years, interest in hiking, trekking, camping and other outdoor activities in Azerbaijan has grown, both among local youth and among tourists visiting the country, since despite its relatively small territory, this country has a lot to offer. Indeed, the territory of Azerbaijan covers the mountains of the Greater and Lesser Caucasus in the north and west, is washed by the Caspian Sea in the east and has plains in the center. 10 national parks are present in Azerbaijan (for more details, see National Parks of Azerbaijan) and a number of nature reserves protected by the state. Due to its antiquity, there are hundreds of historical monuments associated with different periods – ancient Christian temples, medieval mosques, defensive walls and towers that tourists cannot ignore.



Azerbaijan has many travel agencies specializing in the field of hiking, trekking, camping, mountaineering and other types of active tourism, but unfortunately this area is at the initial stage of its development. For example, the guides offered by most agencies are not professionals in this area, but rather amateurs who know this or that route or these agencies do not have a base of equipment for outdoor activities and expect that the tourist should have everything necessary.
