South Coast Walks & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
With such a high density of scenic spectacles, Armenia is perhaps Asia’s greatest hidden gem. Landlocked in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia, it is a country full of cultural highlights. Armenia offers a great depth of history and fascinating sights, such as age-old architecture and glorious natural landscapes. With all of this and more to enjoy, there is no shortage of sights to see on walking holidays in Armenia.
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.
Soak in all this glorious culture on one of our walking holidays. Our highly trained and experienced leaders, who will accompany you on your hikes, are a wealth of knowledge and will inform you of Armenia’s rich history. Allow them to show you the best of this beautiful country, as they guide you around glorious churches with astonishing mosaic artwork, as well as its fortresses, monasteries and prehistoric temples.
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 decorated with wildflowers and local wildlife.
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 sites from the shores of Lake 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. We also visit the stunning Geghard Monestry, idyllically carved into a rock alcove with euphonious acoustics. While travelling you’ll welcome stunning vistas such as those of Mount Ararat, Armenia’s highest peak.
