At the one and only kitespot of Azerbaijan you can actually choose out of two spots. On one side of the Blue Planet Resort you have the lagoon with shallow and flat conditions and on the other side you find the Caspian Sea. It´s just a few steps from your deluxe accomodation to both spots. Enjoy this still untouched piece of land and come kiting in the most exotic destination you will find this summer! In July & August we have the most reliable wind in Azerbaijan. In average we can expect 20-25 knots almost every day! As the temperatures are around 30°C too, it´s shorty or boardshort time. :-) Regarding the material we provide a great pool out of Kites from 4 - 17m². Also we have twintips in different sizes and hydrofoils for the ultimate kite fun at all times!
As Azerbaijan is an unique country we have set up an unique trip to show you some of its many facets. It´s probably the first and only Kite & Travel journey of this kind you will find in the internet. As pictures tell more than words please have a look in the gallery as well. Also check the itinerary to have a detailled day by day summary. :)
The Accomodation - Deluxe & Just 50m To The Spot
Our main accomodation will be the Blue Planet Kite Resort, 90min from Baku. The resort is recently built and meets the highest demands. Two pools, a outdoor gym, chill out areas, a nice bar and excellent restaurant with very reasonable prices are also part of the Azerbaijani kite mekka. When you open your eyes after a restful night, you will see the lagoon from your room and can directly check the kite conditions on your terrace. Have a strengthening breakfast and jump either into the flat water lagoon or the Caspian Sea.
During our trip we will also have several overnight stays in Baku and one night in the beautiful Caucasus area. The hotels we have chosen are checked by ourselves and have a high standard. Breakfast is included every day. More information in the accomodation part.
The Essence - Kite All Day Long
The conditions in July and August couldn´t be better. 20 - 25 knots are normal and combined with sun and good vibes a truly epic set up. Either you prefer to go out there and have a freeriding session or you go for a course / private class - we are sure you gonna have a great time on the shallow water lagoon or the normally pretty calm Caspian Sea.
For all riders accompanied kiting and rescue service are included. For all beginners and intermediate kiters, we offer kite classes in English, German, Spanish or Russian. It doesn´t matter if you are a complete beginner or already participated in a course before. Our experienced VDWS instructors will assess your current level and build up the ideal course to meet your needs and let you progress as fast as possible. We are looking to speak with you to find the right package for your needs.
For all participants we offer interactive theory classes so you can refresh your knowledge or even learn something new every day.
The Travel - Disover, Taste, Experience
A BIG part of our Kite & Travel programm is the travel itself. We will have a city tour through Baku passing the famous flame towers and many more impressive landmarks and drive with our private van to the Gobustan National Park. Here we will see some of the oldest cave paintings of mankind and get dirty at the mud volcanoes. What an experience!
After our kiting days at the lagoon we will go on to the highest village of Azerbaijan, Xinaliq. To see how the real traditional and rural life in the mountains works we will have a beautiful hike with our local guide Maliv. He will lead us up to an Ateshgah, an traditional fire temple, and amazing viewing point. After our overnight in the mountains we will head back to Baku and enjoy one last time the vibrant nightlife of this diverse city.
