Best Time To Travel To Azerbaijan

We recommend traveling to Azerbaijan during the shoulder seasons anytime from April to June or September to October for optimal weather and lower prices.

Novruz Bayrami is known as the Persian New Year and is celebrated every year welcoming spring with open arms. This extremely culturally important holiday is not to be missed and is celebrated all over the country with plenty of food and dance. Better yet, the countryside is filled with colorful wildflowers. Visit the capital of Baku for a more modern side of the country or visit popular stops along the old Silk Road trading route such as Sheki and Lahic or even smaller villages such as Quba or Xinaliq.

Enjoy hiking in the Caucasus mountains, visit the Gobustan National Park or the Gobustan Petroglyph Reserve. Witness mud volcanoes or bathe in the Caspian Sea. Azerbaijan is not often on one’s travel radar but is truly worth the visit!
