COMMENTS ABOUT Armenia:
You will be surprised at the history, the scenic views, and the friendly culture of Armenia. Located between Turkey and Azerbaijan, much of the country is situated over a thousand feet above sea level. June through September, Armenia experiences summer and can be very comfortable. If you plan to visit during another time, the country often gets snow in the winter and maintains cooler temperatures, so pack accordingly.
If you are a fan of wildlife and the outdoors, there are astounding cranes, reptiles, majestic bezoar goats, and Armenian mouflons a plenty. Go hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking along the Zangezur ridge. You will be astounded by the friendly white weasels that come out to investigate and golden eagles soaring above. Another great Armenian winter pastime is skiing. The elevation makes this a perfect winter getaway.
For a traditional look at Armenia, we recommend visiting Yerevan and the family castle of the Pahlavouni Princes. While you are there, stop by the church and fortress of Amberd. For insights into the ancient Christian heritage, ask your tour guide about the Echmiadzin Cathedral, the oldest in all of Armenia. Or if science is more of an interest, take a tour to the Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory where even the stars are within reach.
Or visit other cities with UNESCO Heritage sites like Zvartnots temple, an archeological site both elegant and unique. Other places you might enjoy include the ancient Noratus Cemetary outside of Gavar, Ararat Mountain, and the Erebuni Fortress.
Armenia’s cities are full of culture with museums, galleries, and an unparalleled history, so book your tour today on Private Guides.
