Privare Tour: Tatev, Ropeway, Khndzoresk, & Areni Winary

1. Privare Tour: Tatev, Ropeway, Khndzoresk, & Areni Winary

The South of Armenia is stunning and very different from the North, plus 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. Your first destination will be one of the numerous vineyards, where you will have a wine tasting. Afterwards, continue your drive to arrive at the longest airway tramway in the world, which was registered in the Guinness book of records in 2010. The Wings of Tatev will take you straight to the 9th Century Tatev Monastery, which once was the educational and spiritual center of Armenia. It is 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). You will see the Harsnadzor Watchtower and Devil’s Bridge, which is a natural viaduct formed on the river. Khndzoresk is another spot included in this tour. Right up until the 20th Century, this network of manmade caves was the biggest village in Eastern Armenia. You are welcome to explore the cave system as well as a 5th Century church and the Spring of the 9 Orphans in old Khndzoresk. To do all of this, you will first have to go through a 160-meter long suspension bridge that was built in 2012, connecting Old Khndzoresk and New Khndzoresk, literally bridging Armenia’s history with the present day.

Syunik: Two-Day Southern Armenia Tour

2. Syunik: Two-Day Southern Armenia Tour

Head for the heart of Southern Armenia, the region of Goris and explore its traditional character with many sites of interest. On the way, unfold the monastery of Khor Virap, with a rewarding breathtaking view of Mount Ararat. Your first discovery in Syunik will be the precious Tatev Monastery, perched on the mountain outcrop above the Vorotan Canyon. After the visit, take the trail of Tatevi Anapat, leading you to the ancient medieval monastery of Tatevi Anapat, which used to be a Tatev Monastery's annex and former defensive seminary. Later, descend to Satan's bridge, where the natural pools of warm water with healing properties will be revealed. At the end of the day, continue to Goris where you will settle in a comfortable guesthouse with a hospitable and friendly atmosphere. The second day is a very long thirteen hours and will be devoted to Goris, the town of tradition, good zest for life, troubadours and poets. Take a tour of the city and discover the old Goris, its fairy chimneys, St-Hripsime chapel and take the trail to climb the Lasti Khout hill where a fabulous panorama will greet you. After the lunch, reach the old village of Khndzoresk, its suspended bridge, medieval chapel, and troglodyte houses. After lunch, return to Yerevan with a stop at Karahunj, which was an observatory of megalithic stones that is considered older than Stonehenge.

Went for a spectacular tour with Yervani Travel, all the way down to Khndzoresk and Tatev Monastery. Booking was seamless with perfect assistance, and the tour itself has been brilliant, a dream experience. Armina & Arman took awesome care of us and helped us to reach the places we wanted to go despite the snow and the issues of the season. Armenia has a lot to offer to tourism, and definitely this is the kind of service and professionalism needed to bring the country forward.
