Full description
The tour will start at the turquoise Lake Sevan, the “Blue Pearl” of Armenia. Take a walk along the shores of this majestic lake and enjoy some free time to explore the beaches, as well as relax on one of the deck chairs. Visit Sevanavank Monastery, which is considered to be one of the most visited places and tourist attractions in Armenia. This monastery complex was constructed in the 9th century. It consists of two churches, Surb Arakelots “Holy Apostles” and Surb Astvatsatsin “Holy Mother of God”. Get acquainted with the history of this important site from the experienced guide. Overall, this trip to Sevanavank Monastery offers a unique combination of nature’s grandeur with the history and architecture.

Afterwards, go to visit Dilijan. This city, which is considered to be “Little Switzerland” of Armenia, is a worthwhile place to see and spend at least one single day.

Nestled in the forested mountainside, Haghartsin Monastery represents an astonishing harmony of nature and architecture. The very name Haghartsin means “The playing eagle” (“Hagh” means a game and “Artsin” or “Artsiv” – an eagle in Armenian), as an eagle used to soar over the main building of the monastery. Thriving from the 13th century, the monastery complex had been one of the most important scientific and cultural centers of Medieval Armenia. Now you will have an opportunity to admire fully reconstructed Haghartsin.

Enriched and impressed by this unforgettable excursion, return to the Capital, Yerevan.
