The Ecotourism Festival gathers eco-travelers from around the world in Artavan village to raise public awareness about ecotourism in a fun and adventurous way.

Avid travelers and locals can expect an exhilarating combination of adventure and education—participating in morning yoga, trying local foods, taking in photo and art exhibitions about the RA Red Book plants and animals, participating in (or watching) a cycling competition, taking classes in mountain climbing, and, for the most adventurous, camping under the stars.
