What You Can Expect

Day Trip to Gobustan National Park and Mud Volcano Tour

Mud volcano

This day tour begins at Sahil, a metro station in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan. Enjoy a 1.5-hour trip south to Gobustan National Park, officially known as the Gobustan Rock Art Cultural Landscape. The park is actually a hill and mountain site at the southeast end of Azerbaijan’s Greater Caucasus mountain ridge.

At the park’s petroglyph museum, see ancient human bones and work tools that were used thousands of years ago during the Mesolithic period. At the mountain site, see rock paintings and carvings in an open-air museum.

Also, check out the nearby mud volcanoes. Azerbaijan is well known for active mud volcanoes — approximately 300 at the local shore, sea, and islands.

Our trip to Gobustan and the Mud Volcanos was one to remember. My husband had food poisoning and refused to skip out on the trip. Our poor guide got more than she bargained for, as he got sick out the window on the way to the mud volcanos. why wouldn't he just skip the tour?????? the tour guide and driver were so kind and accommodating and made sure that my husband was as comfortable as possible - WAY ABOVE THE CALL OF DUTY. once we arrived to the volcanos, my husband was feeling much better and our tour guide enthusiastically showed us around terrain and made the trip enjoyable, educational and one that should not be missed.

The tour guide Sabina Mammedli is excellent. She explained everything very well and told many good and interesting stories. We first went to the Mud Volcano, and then we saw the museum of Gobustan and the national park. It's one of the best day trips I have in Azerbaijan. The price is very worthy. I highly recommend!

What a great experience! Getting to the mud volcanoes is almost an offroad experience! But the driver knows the way. I was a little disappointed that we saw the little volcanoes, but I didn't bother to find out which ones we were visiting. My bad. But they were interesting, and we got to stay as long as we liked.
Gobustan was interesting and very unique.
The guide was very nice, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable.
One note- the meeting point is at the EXIT of the metro station, on the other street. The map was not really helpful as it could have been in the station, etc. Its on the outside of the metro Exit.
A wonderful trip and we enjoyed it immensely.

This is an excellent tour. The guide, Jamil, was very friendly and full of interesting facts about the area. He was bang on time at the meeting point and was very knowledgeable and informative. His English was perfect. The driver was also very pleasant.
I'd highly recommend this tour as it's not too long 4 hours but a lot was learned in that time.

Our tour guide Lamiya was Fantastic! Very friendly and knowledgeable. We went to the mud volcanoes first then to see the Gobustan National Park. She took care of all the tickets, got us bottled water and shared information about the Azer culture. We loved the trip and would definitely recommend it!
