Tour program

Meeting, accommodation and stroll through the winter Yerevan

After you arrive, we'll meet you at the airport and help to get to the hotel. We will have a walk around wintery Yerevan and around the gorge, which stretches through the city.

Hot springs, lake Sevan and hike to the snow-covered monastery in the forest

Our first destination is Bjni, a village on a bank of Hrazdan river, where ancient churches and a fortress have been preserved. Out of many well-known sources of mineral water, here is one of the most famous sources- with the same name Bjni.

Hanqavan is another place with hot mineral springs. We will go there.

Located in a river gorge sanatorium is situated between two mountain ranges, which are covered with thick forests, and give the area a fairy look, especially in winter.

Sevan Lake comes next. The lake is beautiful at all seasons, and in winter it sometimes freezes, but this doesn't happen always.

In Dilijan, there are mineral water sources, too. This isn't the only property in the city. It is situated in a forest- in the National Park, and is a perfect place for both summer and winter rest.  Not far from Dilijan, on a hill stand the monastery of Matosavank. Our first winter hiking will be there.

Then, we'll return to Dilijan for the overnight stay.

Hiking in the winter forest to the ancient sanctuaries

On the third, a hike to Makaravank monastery will be organised. We will get there climbing the mountain Paytatap, the height of which gets to almost 2000 m, and which is covered with forests.

Then, we will have a hike to Arakeloc monastery. The monastery is situated on the right bank of a river, on a hill, and on both riverbanks, there are preserved buildings of the old village Arakelots.

If we manage, we'll probably hike to another monastery, situated in a fairy winter forest- to the monastery of Mshkavank.

On a hill above the river valley, in Haghpat village, where we will hike next, stands Haghpat monastery. The monastery was a famous spiritual centre of medieval Armenia and still keeps its importance.

Not far from the monastery, we'll have the overnight stay.

The trail of the ancient and mysterious monasteries

On the fourth day of our winter hiking, we will hike to three monasteries- Kobayr, Horomayr, and Odzun. The first 2 monasteries amaze not only with the fact that they've been preserved till our days but also with the place, where they were built- on the edges of rock. And Odzun monastery amazes with its antiquity- it's been standing here for 15 centuries. The path itself, through which we'll make this wonderful hike differs with its special beauty.

For the overnight stay, we'll return to Haghpat.

A trip to the deep gorge under the fortress

The gorge of Dzoraget River and its Tributaries is one of the most beautiful gorges in Armenia. On this day of a winter hike, we will get close to the secrets of "Lori Berd" fortress and the gorges surrounding the fortress on both sides, where, there are preserved ancient buildings and a unique stone bridge.

The overnight stay will be not far from Stepanavan.

Mysteries of the gorge and ancient monasteries

Of course, you'll like the hiking through a picturesque gorge to the monastery of Hnevank.

And then, we will go to a small, but ancient cave settlement.

The last destination, before we return to Yerevan is proudly standing on a plain monastery of Marmashen. It's an important medieval architectural monument.
Returning to Yerevan, perhaps, we'll visit another interesting place.
