A fascinating cultural journey through the heart of the Caucasus
A former Soviet republic and one of the first Christian nations, Armenia straddles the mountainous Caucasus region between Asia and Europe. It's rich cultural heritage and beautiful natural locations, makes for an exhilarating destination for a wide range of adventure, multi sports and walking tours.
Built in stunning locations, the many UNESCO World-Heritage-listed churches stand surrounded by forests, perched on the top of dramatic gorges or shadowed by snow-capped mountains all contrasting to wide open spaces with abundant wildlife and a huge variety of trees and wild flowers. On Armenia tours we see wonderful mountains, lakes and waterfalls in the countryside – and relish cooling breezes – while the cafés and restaurants of the country's capital, Yerevan, are proof of an emerging economy. Mount Ararat towers majestically over the city, and beautiful scenery is plentiful.
