Summary1


Independent exploration is relatively hard in this off-the-trail destination, so we provide a private guide and driver to ensure you get the most out of your unforgettable adventure. Starting in the beguiling capital of Yerevan, you’ll explore its streets and landmarks before heading into the remarkable countryside of Kotayk, for UNESCO-listed monasteries and natural wonders. End your trip with visits to the endless waters of Lake Sevan (the second largest freshwater lake in the world) and the lush landscape of Dilijan (known as ‘Little Switzerland’), and you’ll find yourself in love with Armenia.

Day One: Hello Armenia!

Upon arrival into Yerevan, you’ll be taken to your hotel by private transfer. Spend the rest of the day soaking up the atmosphere of the lively Armenian capital, which is especially charming on summer nights, when the wide promenades welcome flower-sellers, restaurant terraces and locals on their regular walks.

Overnight in Yerevan

Day1


Day Two: Yerevan and Beyond

One of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited cities with centuries of fascinating history, the lively Armenian capital begs to be explored. After breakfast, you’ll meet your private guide to tackle its highlights and secret corners – from the geometric parks of the Cascade Stairs to grand Republic Square. Afterwards, take a 40-minute drive by 4X4 into the Kotayk province, a vast sprawl of ancient monuments, arid plains and snowy mountains. Here, you’ll visit the medieval Geghard Monastery, a UNESCO Heritage site of church and rock tombs hidden in the mountains, as well as the Temple of Garni, the only pagan temple left in the region, built in 77AD. As a spine-tingling optional extra, we can arrange tickets for a short concert of medieval Armenian music in the Geghard Monastery – a hauntingly beautiful experience that we thoroughly recommend (for related costs, see the Extras Tab). You’ll also explore the stunning natural beauty of the area, scattered with deep gorges, canyons and caves that once served as shelter for hermits. Stop off at viewpoints near the Azat River to admire incredible views, then venture off-road to discover the “Symphony of stones”, 50m-high basalt columns that cling to rock faces and are thought to have been formed during the cooling of volcanic lava. Finish your day with a tasting of homemade local vodkas and lavash (Armenian bread), accompanied by an evocative recital of traditional musical on the Armenian Duduk (a mesmerising kind of flute).

Day Three: Lake Country

After breakfast, make the journey to Lake Sevan. Known as the blue-eyed pearl and 1,900m above sea level, this Alpine expanse is the second largest freshwater lake in the world. Cruise its waters, passing wild-flower packed hills, market-backed beaches and little resort towns, then continue to Dilijan, a resort town known as ‘Little Switzerland’ thanks to its abundant greenery. Enjoy lunch here before heading to peaceful Lake Parz, where you can enjoy birdsong and fresh air before zip-lining along an 800m-long wire, 300 metres above the breathtaking Khachagh Byur Gorge. You’ll return to Yerevan for the evening.
