Perched at the intersection of Europe and Asia, the Armenian Highlands are home to a diverse range of ecosystems and species, as well as dramatic topography ranging from 400 to 5,000 meters above sea level. Trails traverse through deep woods and grassy plains, over fields of wildflowers and along bubbling springs and rivers. Desert steppes ascend to alpine meadows with spring-fed lakes, and mountainous treks feature annual bird migrations and rare species of wild fauna. A growing number of protected areas is helping to safeguard these natural treasures for future visitors.
As the saying goes, Armenia is truly a museum under an open sky, thanks to thousands of historical and cultural monuments scatted across (and under!) its surface. Our experiences couple the beautiful natural landscape with iconic monasteries and cozy churches, mighty fortresses and traditional cave-cities, and ancient petroglyphs and historic ruins from previous civilizations.
