Joining the Caucasus wish list means you will receive all things to inspire a journey to Caucasus for when restrictions are lifted. We encourage you to join the list and to keep dreaming about travel!

Come explore one of the hottest travel destinations in the world right now, Caucasus and more specifically three small nations: Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. Located between the Black and Caspian Seas, they were former Soviet Republics. Since winning their independence in 1991, they have prospered and joined the world. The Silk Road, connecting Asia and Europe, crossed through these lands, providing them with a long and storied history as well as a sense of belonging. Being at the crossroads, they are neither European nor Asian, but something uniquely different. Why visit the Caucasus? This journey offers insights of a very different world, one with magnificent mountain scenery and a long religious and trading history. Christianity was brought here during the 1st century CE by the Apostles. Armenia was the first nation to adopt Christianity as their national religion in the 4th century. We will find religious relics everywhere we go: Pagan, Zoroastrian, Christian and Islamic. It is small wonder that their respective histories developed with this strong faith and their monuments to the past take the form of religious stone buildings and statues. Virtually every important sight and beautiful landscape is marked by a historic structure. The capital cities of Baku, Tbilisi and Yerevan provide very comfortable accommodations and services. Venturing into the countryside we experience life as it is today. Here, our accommodations while still very comfortable, will be a little more rustic. Group size is strictly limited and we anticipate that the group will fill quickly so be sure to reserve early!
