Unwind and explore the great outdoors

Welcome to Azerbaijan’s outdoor resort hub! In winter, stay for skiing and snowboarding in the Caucasus Mountains, while in summer there’s an excellent range of adrenaline-fuelled activities including quad-biking, shooting, paragliding and hiking. Many hotels have excellent swimming pools and spas, and if you head to Yengija or Chenot Palace it’s possible to benefit from thermal springs, take medicinal baths in heavy petroleum oil or undergo cryotherapy.
