Full description
Start the day by heading for the Southern Province Vayots Dzor, which is considered the ancient cradle of wine-making. For thousands of years, it has been an important center of viticulture in the region with authentic grape varieties that grow on its fertile soil. In the morning you will drive to the village Amaghu, from where you will start trekking to the architectural masterpiece Noravank Monastery, which is perched on the rocky outcrop. The everlasting impression of the stunning panorama is guaranteed here.

Later, you will head to Areni Cave, where a 6000-year old shoe has been revealed together with wine vessels and other accessories which testify that Armenia is an ancient and authentic center of wine-making. After that, you will discover the secrets of pure wine-making and taste the authentic wine of Areni.

At the end of the afternoon, you will be accompanied back to your hotel in Yerevan with a stop in Khor Virap Monastery where the flawless view of the Biblical Mount Ararat will be a real gift to our eyes.
