Location

Armenia is the smallest of the three nations of the Caucasus however, much like its neighbours, it is a country with a rich and resilient culture and history. A challenging place to explore, Armenia’s roads are rough and transport can be more difficult to navigate for those that do not speak Armenia or Russian, should you choose to travel to Armenia without a guide. However, travelling here is as rewarding as it is revelatory, with a very dense history still overwhelmingly present in the culture you see today.  All of our guides are fully knowledgeable in the area, the culture, and the language, allowing you to sit back and enjoy your holiday in Armenia stress free.

Culture

Armenia has a powerful religious culture with a highly Christian population, despite sharing its borders with many Muslim countries. The Armenian Kingdom was the first state in history to adopt Christianity as its religion, meaning that the Armenian Apostolic Church is the oldest national church in the world, and still today remains the heart of Armenia’s religious culture.
 
Armenia has been the target of constant conflict throughout history, being ruled by Persian, Byzantine and Mongol empires as well as the Soviet Union. The cultural influence this had on Armenia results in a nation with a very diverse identity and a country unlike anywhere in the world, making it an unmissable stop when travelling to the Caucasus.
 
Haghpat and Sanahin Monasteries
The Haghpat and Sanahin Monasteries were built during the 10th century, and are the located in the picturesque village of East Alaverdi. Haghpat Monastery, built to maximise privacy for monks inside, was built halfway up a hill to provide a humble secluded life for those that inhabited it.  The beautiful monastery overlooks the Debed River and due to its positioning within a mountainous region is often shrouded by clouds. Within sight from Haghpat Monastery is Sanahim Monastery, whose name comically translates to “this one is older than that one”, referring to its Haghpat neighbour. This monastery has exquisite ancient architecture and is a staple of Armenia’s religious culture.
 
Geghard
The Cave monastery of Geghard is a must see for tourists with an interest in history for those touring Armenia. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gephard is steeped in archaeological history, consisting of caves carved out from a mountainside. With many churches carved within the mountain, and further caves dug to continue expansion, there is nowhere in the world quite like it.
 
Vagharshapat and Echmiatsin Cathedral
The city of Vagharshapat is the religious centre of Armenia and should be at the top of the list for any religious tourists or enthusiasts for your holiday in Armenia. Vagharshapat is home to the Echmiatsin Cathedral, considered to be one of the oldest cathedrals in the world, as well as five UNESCO World Heritage Sites including The Saint Hripsime Church, The Saint Gayane Church, The Shoghakat Church and the Zvartnots Cathedral.
 
Dilijan National Park
Dilijan National Park is a beautifully forested area spanning 240 km². Established as a National Park in 2002 in order to maintain its rich biodiversity, Dilijan boasts beautiful forests with a plethora of animals and plants, making it the perfect Armenian holiday spot for those with a passion for nature. Within the national park is the village of Dilijan, an extremely unique city which earnt itself the name of “Little Switzerland” due to its surrounding forests and beautiful resorts. The city has been maintained as a traditionally ‘Old Town’ but this does not prevent it from brimming with life and it should not be missed when touring Armenia.
