Gobustan and Absheron Tour

From 8:30 am, we will pick you up at your hotel in downtown Baku and take you on a tour of the Absheron Peninsula. Our first stop is the site of the city's first oil well, which was drilled in 1871.

After a brief stop, we will head towards the Bibi-Heybat mosque. For half an hour, we will explore this amazing temple that houses the remains of a descendant of Muhammad: Ukeyma Janum. The beautiful decoration of its interior will leave you speechless!

We will then go to the Gobustan National Park, where we will admire its more than 6000 petroglyphs, which range from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Middle Ages. There we will also have the opportunity to board an old Soviet cab to get closer to the mud volcanoes which are protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

After admiring these wonderful mud formations, we will continue with the tour by heading to the vicinity of Baku to have a buffet lunch around 1 pm.

Finally, we will go to the Absheron peninsula to see the Yanar Dag fire mountain and visit the magical Temple of Fire where we will learn the basics of Zoroastrianism, a mysterious religion of the area.

We will conclude the tour by arriving in Baku at approximately 4 pm.

Collection

The collection is done in the hotels in the center of Baku. People who are not staying in that area of the city should go to the Gosha Gala Gapisi.
