Taste the oldest wine and ride the longest cableway in the world when you travel to Armenia!
This trip is one of the longest daily tours we have to offer, and it’s definitely worth it. The South of Armenia is both stunning and very different from the North, and it only takes about 2 hours to drive from Yerevan to Areni. The town is known for its spectacular history in wine making, bearing the name of one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. So if you are a Wine connoisseur, don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit Areni and all of its vineyards.
Our first destination will be a pick of one of the numerous vineyards, where you will have the wine taste. Driving for 2 more hours, we will arrive at the longest airway tramway in the world (approx. 6 km), which was registered in the Guinness book of records in 2010. The Wings of Tatev will take us straight to the 9th century Tatev Monastery, which once was the educational and spiritual center of Armenia. It’s built on a high plateau in the Vorotan river gorge, and is surrounded by breathtaking mountains and dense forests. During your ride, you will enjoy a spectacular view over one of the most beautiful spots in Armenia (if not in the world). Here you will see the Harsnadzor Watchtower and Devil’s Bridge, which is a natural viaduct formed on the river.
Shaki Waterfall is a waterfall in Armenia, with a height of 18 m. It is located in Syunik Province. On the left side of the river Vorotan’s gorge, basalt lava flows have solidified to form a ledge 18 meters high from which the waterfall cascades down.
About an hour of driving back will take you to one of the most ancient observatories in the world – Carahunge, the Armenian Stonehenge, which is a whopping 2500 years older than the world famous Stonehenge. This is one of the most mystical spots on our planet and is yet to be explored!
