Why buy flights to the Caucasus?

The Caucasus region, consisting of Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and parts of Russia, is a transcontinental region situated between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The Caucasus Mountains are a major mountain range running through the region, serving as a natural barrier between Eastern Europe and Western Asia.

The Caucasus is known for its diverse geography that is made up of mountains, plains and foothills. Hikers and outdoor enthusiasts can explore breathtaking mountain ranges like the Greater Caucasus, which is home to Europe's highest peak, Mount Elbrus. The Black Sea coast within the region also provides a chance to relax on sandy beaches or explore coastal towns.

Discover mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan is famous for having the world's highest concentration of mud volcanoes. These form where the underground gases, primarily methane, push through layers of rock and mud, erupting onto the surface. Unlike fiery volcanoes, mud volcanoes erupt with cold mud, sometimes accompanied by water, oil and gas.

There are over 350 mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan, ranging from small simmering puddles to impressive cones reaching up to 700 metres (2,300 feet) in height. The most popular mud volcano sites include Gobustan National Park, Lokbatana and Shirvan.

Indulge in a Georgian feast

In the Caucasus region, Georgia has a distinct cuisine that is heavily influenced by its geographical location and historical encounters. Fresh herbs like coriander and tarragon are popular, often used alongside walnuts and cheeses. Bread plays a central role in a Georgian meal, the popular option being khachapuri which is a boat-shaped bread filled with melted cheese and egg.

You'll also find that hearty stews and vegetable dishes are common when visiting the region, often featuring ingredients like beans, lentils and eggplants. Grilled meat skewers (mtsvadi) and meat stews are also incredibly popular choices. If you'd like to taste traditional Georgian cuisine, try khinkali - these are delicate dumplings filled with meat or vegetables.
