Full description
Although there are various historical landmarks in Armenia, the oldest and most well-known is the Biblical Mount Ararat. This tour promises spectacular views of the mountain from the closest spot possible.

The Khor Virap Monastery is located about an hour’s drive away from the capital of Yerevan, and it offers an amazing view of Armenia’s defining symbol – the majestic Ararat. Khor Virap translates as “deep dungeon”, and it was built on the place of the former royal prison, located on the historical site of Artashat.

Gregory the Illuminator, the first Armenian Catholic, was detained in this prison for 13 years. The Monastery is therefore one of the most sacred spots for Armenians around the world. Discover its beauty and history for yourself on this tour.
