By Anoosh Reinolds

Camping is the best choice for lovers of nature and secluded recreation. If you are not afraid of wild conditions, long walks and nights under the open sky, then it’s time to get your backpack ready for a trekking and camping tour. Moreover, a camping tour is an excellent choice for a budget holiday, especially if you are planning to visit several countries.

Today we’d like to tell you about the amazing region of the South Caucasus which includes Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. This region is a great choice for camping lovers – lush forests, majestic mountains, fast rivers and mysterious ancient sights – what can sound more appealing? Let’s explore Camping in Armenia Georgia and Azerbaijan…

 

Camping in Armenia

Like other countries of the South Caucasus, Armenia is an ideal place for trekking and camping. There are several popular camping destinations in the country, each of which has all the necessary conditions for comfortable holiday.

 

ARK Armenia Kapan Eco-Camp

Over the years, the government has paid more attention to the protection of nature. Today, several eco-camps function in Armenia. ARK Armenia is a popular place in a beautiful region called Syunik. The region is known for its unique nature and priceless historical monuments.

Eco-camp has all the amenities for your comfort including a toilet, drinking water, a kitchen and a place for a fire. Whilst camping you will enjoy the boundless silence of Syunik mountains.

Crossway camping, Armenia

This is another eco-camp in Armenia that is aimed to preserve the environment and, of course, to attract visitors from all over the world. Crossway camping is a modern camp with its own garden and fruit trees. You can pick up fruit and vegetables, eggs in the henhouse and make a fresh eco-breakfast. Within its territory, there is also a small lake for fishing, a kitchen, a place for a fire, drinking water, summer house, laundry and a swimming pool.

We can confidently say that the whole country is absolutely perfect for camping and you can find less discovered but no less amazing corners for a rest in the lap of nature.

Camping in Georgia

The territory of Georgia is one big “camping platform”. Do you want to spend your vacation on the lake or in the forest? In Georgia, wherever you go, you will see boundless forests, mountain rivers and lakes hidden in the forests.

Camping by the Black Sea

In summer, you can perfectly combine camping with a beach holiday on one of the Black Sea coasts of Adjara. Several popular resort towns, including the capital of Adjara, Batumi, are located along the Black Sea coast.

The camps are also located along the beach. The most popular place is Anaklia during the annual GEM fest. Even if you don’t manage to get to the festival, you will still have an unforgettable vacation on the island.

Another equipped camp is located near the resort town of Kobuleti. There is a kitchen, shower and toilet on the territory. Tourists can stop and arrange a camp right on the beach.

Camping in Borjomi

The other perfect destination in Georgia is Borjomi resort town and national park. By the way, Borjomi national park was the very first one in Georgia and today it is considered the largest in Europe.

There are ready tourist trails along the most picturesque places of the park, as well as camps for overnight stays. By nodular railway you can travel from Borjomi to Bakuriani, swim in therapeutic sulfur baths and go back.

 

Camping in Azerbaijan

Our journey through the South Caucasus is coming to an end. The last stop is Azerbaijan, another great destination for exploring nature. You can always escape Baku’s noise travelling to the north-western regions, where modern technologies have not changed the experience of nature yet.

 

Camping in national parks

Camping in Azerbaijan is a new developing branch of tourism, and so far there are no special camping places in the country. Most tourists visit national parks for pure nature. There are also mini hotels and cottages found in the national parks as well as other tourist services for passive and active holidays.

The most popular destination is Sheki park where you can combine camping with recreation. Due to the mild climate, the resort is perfectly suitable for health improvement. There are trails for biking and horse riding in the park, as well as a cable car to the top of the Choturmas.

Camping on the coast of the Caspian Sea

Most tourists organize camps on the coast of the Caspian Sea, not far from the capital of Baku. Camping on the beach is not only pleasant, but also affordable. The money you save on camping can be spent in the capital.

 

So there you have it, the many options of camping in Armenia Georgia and Azerbaijan!

    I love that row of tents! What I don’t like about camping here in the Philippines is the heat and humidity. Unless, of course you camp high up in the mountains. And since I pee quite a lot, the last time I went camping with the girls, I had UTI early in the morning.

    I recently went camping for the first time this summer and totally fell in love with it. Now I am looking at all these awesome campgrounds and can already dream up how much I would enjoy it. The views are also to die for, not forgetting being able to have access to fresh fruits like the camp in Armenia.

    I’ve been camping at home (in Canada) as a kid, but wouldn’t have considered camping in Armenia, Azerbaijan, or Georgia before reading this post. They all look like some amazing countries to camp in. Crossway camp where you can pick eggs from the henhouse and fruits and vegetables sounds like a wonderful way to camp.

    Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan are 3 countries I’ve not yet visited. I love the idea of eco-glamping in Armenia, those landscape look breathtaking, and I like the thought of making myself an eco-breakfast by collecting eggs from the henhouse too! I never knew that the Borjomi National Park is the largest in Europe! I’d definitely want to see it now!

    This is such an intriguing post about places that I never thought even would be great for camping. Armenia surely takes the sweet spot with some great spots. Would live to camp near the Black Sea for sure. The other one which I fancy is Borjomi natipnal park. What fantastic views. Great post.

      Here agriculturists cultivate apricots, peaches, apples, plums, grapes, figs, pomegranates, quince and others. However, there are several types of fruits which with their special incomparable taste are considered real living symbols of the country. This fruits are ecologically clean and, yes, you can just pick your own fruit and vegetables from the trees!
