Overview

Discover exciting and mesmerizing locations in a country best known as the “Land of Fire” on this guided full day tour of Baku. Explore the prehistoric petroglyphs at Gobustan National Park to see cave painting that date back to 40,000 years before continuing onward to learn about the mud volcanoes.

Gobustan National Park is a State Reserve which is located in the west of the settlement of Gobustan, about 40 miles southwest of the centre of Baku and was established in 1966 when the region was declared as a national historical landmark of Azerbaijan in an attempt to preserve the ancient carvings, mud volcanoes and gas-stones in the region.

Continue onward to see the fun mud volcanoes that are basically cold! Over 300 mud volcanoes exist in Azerbaijan and the whole family of these ‘geologically flatulent’ little conical mounds often erupt thick, cold, grey mud that are considered to have healing properties! Watch as the liquid mud gurgles its way out of the crater and feel like you’re on extraterrestrial ground.

Children under the age of 6 tour free of charge

The way to Mud Volcanoes is off-road, so in heavy rainy weather conditions the tour transportation car cannot pass through heavy soil. In such case, we add to the tour program "Bibi Heybet" mosque - one of the oldest mosques in Baku.

In rainy weather conditions, we suggest additional shoes for Mud Volcanoes trip.
