Dear Traveller,
What’s hot? Summer in the Caucasus, that’s what!
If you’ve never been to the Caucasus, you’re missing out. The tantalising trio of destinations – Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan – were all once part of the Soviet Union, but each has its own distinct personality.
Georgia is proud, wild and in places untamed! The capital Tbilisi is charm personified, with leafy squares, thermal baths and a thriving cafe culture. But venture into the countryside and Georgia really comes into its own. The Military Highway leads from Tbilisi north to the Russian border, but its name is a misnomer. Instead of tanks and armed guards, you’ll encounter shepherds herding their flocks, snow-capped peaks and vendors selling unlabelled jars of homemade honey. If it’s possible, remote Svaneti is even more beautiful and its stone towers lend it an air of mystery. There are hikes to glaciers and Alpine meadows, making this one of the country’s best spots in summer.
Armenia next door is packed with hilltop monasteries, each with a view more dramatic and more breathtaking than the last. From Khor Virap you can see biblical Mount Ararat just over the border in Turkey, while Sevanavank has exquisite panoramas over serene Lake Sevan which more than compensate for the effort required to climb the steps up to its lofty location. Yerevan is a modern, confident capital and, due to Armenia’s diminutive size, an easy base for sightseeing to all but the furthest corners of the country. But make the effort to reach far-flung Tatev; its cable car is the longest in the world.
Azerbaijan is different again. Bold, wealthy and modern, Baku’s Flame Towers are an obvious reminder of the money that the Caspian Sea oil deposits have brought. Yet, inside its ageing stone walls lies an old town that’s creaking with character and is more than worthy of its UNESCO listing. Venture out into the countryside and you’ll encounter mud volcanoes and even a flaming hillside at Yanar Dag. But linking it to its neighbours are the ever-present Caucasus Mountains which provide a stunning backdrop to many a view.
Whether you opt to visit one or all three of these captivating and intriguing destinations, you can’t fail to be impressed. We can help with your travel arrangements, accommodation and visas leaving you free to enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the world’s most delightful regions. Why not give us a call?

Commemorating the last of the tsars
Right now, with all eyes on the World Cup, Yekaterinburg is making the news as one of Russia’s football venues.

The cats of the Hermitage
This summer, the FIFA World Cup 2018 comes to Russia and the spotlight will be – unusually – on a cat named Achilles. He’s no ordinary cat, of course, and he’ll also be the only animal in the country to receive a fan identification card. The reason for this special treatment? During the 2017 Confederations Cup, Achilles proved very accurate in his pre...
