Azerbaijan is not only ripe fruits and warm sea, but also magnificent ski slopes. The period from mid-December to the end of March is the best time for lovers of mountain skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports. The first-class ski resorts of Tufandag in Gabala and Shahdag in Gusar district are famous for their magnificent scenery, excellent slopes and well-thought-out infrastructure. After an active busy day full of adrenaline and sports achievements, spa centers in local hotels are waiting for guests.
For lovers of a quieter and more measured winter vacation, we offer a walk through the snowy forest in the vicinity of the resorts and breathe clean mountain air. Shahdag ski and tourist complex is located in Gusar district in the heart of the national park of the same name - in the bosom of wild nature, surrounded by picturesque mountains covered with glaciers, crystal clear lakes and waterfalls. We recommend taking a ride on snowmobiles to see snowy rocks against the background of bright blue frosty sky, including the highest peak on the territory of Azerbaijan, Bazarduzu. Hot mineral springs come to the surface in Gabala and several balneological resorts are organized here. Bathing in the healing thermal springs overlooking the winter forest is relaxing and inspiring.
