Our destination

Armenia is one of the 7 countries considered Euro-Asian, which politically and culturally is associated with Europe, although it is located in Asia Minor. It is at the crossroads between Europe, Asia and the Middle East; a remarkable country but often very ignored and that we should have in the list of destinations to know. With its impressive landscapes and the beauty of its ancient monasteries, this small country captures the hearts of those who visit it.

The natural environments of Armenia offer endless beauty. You can find it from deserts, to forests and alpine areas, with peaks of high mountains and leafy valleys, amazing rock formations and scenic ponds, rapids, rivers, waterfalls and mineral sources. On the other hand, 4.000 historical monuments scattered throughout the landscape, which makes this small country known as an open-air museum.

Strong points:

  • The majestic view of Mount Ararat from many parts of the country.
  • Lake Sevan, with its awesome bluish tone
  • The pearl of the Caucasus countries
  • The large number of monasteries, including Khor Virap, Tatev, Noravank
