Discover More About Armenia

Armenia

Sitting at the heart of the Caucasus, Armenia is located in one of the world's most important crossroads. Often desired and regularly conquered, it has a long unique history heavily influenced by neighbours Russia, Turkey and Iran. Deeply spiritual, this is a land of ancient monasteries, grand churches and fine forts all centred on the charming and cosmopolitan city of Yerevan. Framed by snow-capped Mount Ararat, spend a few days in the laid-back capital and explore the region surrounding the city with visits to the fortress of Amberd, Geghard Monastery and ancient Echmiadzin, headquarters of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Further afield drive to Goris and Lake Sevan – Khor Virap Monastery a particular highlight – or stay in Dilijan with its well preserved 19th century homes. Every holiday and tour to Armenia that we design is one-off, memorable and special.
