Whilst staying in Armenia, you simply cannot miss the opportunity of visiting one of the country’s most renowned landmarks – the beautiful lake Sevan. Merely an hour’s drive from the capital city of Yerevan, Sevan is situated at the height of 1900m above sea level and surrounded by a vast chain of mountains. The tour begins by climbing a flight of stairs to the Sevan peninsula – a pleasant morning work-out that will compensate itself with an unforgettable panoramic view of the lake from the top. We will also visit the monastery of Sevanavank, built by the princess Mariam to honor the life of her deceased husband in the 9th century. Sevanavank is also home to one of the most beautiful Amenaprkich (all savior) Khachkars of Armenia. This is one of the 13 rarest cross-stones depicting Jesus.
The tour will then take you to the North of Armenia, where you will be surrounded by beautiful nature. You will visit the ‘’ Armenian Switzerland ’’ – the city of Dilijan. The first stopover in Dilijan will be a visit to the Local History Museum and Art Gallery. After that you will make a stop at the monastery of Haghartsin, dating back to the 10th-14th centuries. The name is translated as “the play of the eagle”. The scenery is somewhat similar to a stunning work of art, with both the monastery and the nature surrounding it providing a breathtaking view. It is one of those spots in Armenia that feels like a breathtaking unreal movie set. The refectory of Haghartsin is considered the biggest amongst Armenian Church architecture; it was an absolute innovation of its time! If you are curious as to why, there will be nothing better than seeing it for yourself!
After having a traditional lunch you will see one of the most beautiful small lakes in Armenia – Lake Parz, which means the lake ‘’ Clean’’. On the way to the lake you will stop by the deer farm to feed them.
