Upon your arrival in the towns and cities of Armenia, you will quickly notice how big a part Christianity plays in Armenian culture. This is no coincidence; Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity as the state religion.
On one of our walking holidays, you will get to learn all about this culture, thanks to our knowledgeable local leaders, who accompany you on each hike. They will ensure you see the best of this beautiful country, guiding you around its glorious churches with astonishing mosaic artwork, as well as its fortresses, monasteries and prehistoric temples, informing you of their history along the way. Other incredible sights found in Armenia include old rock formations and the remarkable cave village of Khndzoresk.
After exploring the city, venture towards the countryside, where you will find a number of stunning alpine peaks which can soar over 3000 metres high, as well as walking trails which are perfect to be explored on foot.
Why Book a Walking Holiday in Armenia?
Choosing to venture around Armenia on foot means that you open yourself up to the opportunity to really absorb the sights and sounds of this magnificent country. Take in the beautiful freshwater lake of Sevan, which sits 6,000 feet above sea level and is surrounded by towering mountain scenery. From there, you can head to the Selim Pass and rest at the same spot where weary travellers used to rest on the Silk Road as they traversed the mountains.
When you book a walking getaway with Ramblers Walking Holidays, you are not only embarking on a quality trip, but you are venturing into a new land with a group of like-minded people who have just as much passion for adventure as you do. There is no greater way to experience a brand new destination than on foot while making friends with your travelling companions at the same time.
During your time in Armenia, you will be accompanied by a highly-trained and experienced tour leader who has expert knowledge of the places you will visit and who will be only too happy to answer any questions you may have.
