At Zvartnots International Airport you will be awaited by our manager with a sign “PARTNER TRAVEL ARMENIA”. The road to the hotel will take 15-20 minutes by a comfortable bus “Mercedes-Benz”, which we will be our transport during the tour. After the hotel check-in, guests along with their guide will go for a walk around Yerevan. We will see not only Cascade, Republic Square and Northern Avenue, but also the narrow colorful streets of the capital, hidden from the eyes of the majority, where we can see how the locals spend evenings in the gazebos, playing board games. The evening will continue in a traditional Armenian restaurant. Here we will get acquainted with Armenian cuisine. Sweet and spicy, hot and cold, tea from Armenian mountain herbs, as well as the famous and not similar in taste to any other Armenian coffee. For those who wish stronger drinks, the restaurant can offer brandy and wine.
In the morning after breakfast, we will go to the second largest city of Armenia and the cultural capital of the country - the city of Gyumri. The road will take about two hours from Yerevan. Steppes and mountains, roadside cafes with homemade cakes and hospitable Armenians - all this awaits us along the way. Upon arrival in the city, we will visit the Museum of the USSR People's Artist Frunzik Mkrtchyan, who hails from Gyumri. Afterward, we will walk through the streets in the center of the city and learn from our guide what Gyumri is famous for and why it is considered the cultural capital of the republic. We will go to a guesthouse for lunch, built by a very friendly and hospitable family. The spirit of the city is transmitted through photographs and antiques, and the design is made in a modern style of wood with elements of metallic art. We will continue our acquaintance with the city by visiting Technopark, where the best IT specialists work in the city. Visit the oldest barbershop, which was opened before the war. The whole interior remained in its original form, armchairs, design, and even one of the hair clippers (45 years old). We will return to the same family, with whom we had time to dine earlier and visit their family farm. In the farm, the guests will get acquainted with the Armenian breed of dogs Gampr, learn the history of the origin of this breed, as well as about the breed of cats Van, which also has a special meaning in Armenian history. There are cows, bulls, sheep, rabbits and chickens in the farm. You will be surprised by the beauty of the fish restaurant in which we will have dinner. This is not just a restaurant - it is a trout-sturgeon fish farm, where we can choose the fish that we want to try. We will spend the night in the guesthouse.
After breakfast, we will go to the picturesque region of Armenia Lori. On the way, will talk about the traditions and peculiarities of the life of the Armenian people. Upon arrival at the destination, we will be expected by professionals in their field, at the same time, athletes involved in the extreme sport - rafting. Fifteen minutes for briefing and the same amount for training equipment and gear. Ready? Let’s go! 13 kilometers of the highest level of extreme, descent on a mountain river in the gorge. The views in this gorge will not leave any tourist indifferent. Helmets and life jackets will ensure your safety. Having had a rest and having caught our breath and pulse, we will go for a dinner. For us the meals will be prepared exclusively from environmentally friendly products collected on an eco-farm nearby. Had a good rest? Going further, to meet more adventure. Professional mountain climbers will take us along the paths through the forest, to the tourist village directly to the hotel, where we will spend the evening and overnight. The hotel itself is located on one of the peaks of the mountain, and the rooms offer wonderful views of the mountain peaks and dense forests. Photos of the highlands of Switzerland can be mistaken for a photo of these locations. The hotel consists of cottages, which allows you to feel not like in a boarding house, but in individual accommodation, and still provides the opportunity to enjoy nature alone with the family.
Breakfast in the fresh mountain air, and we set off again in search of adventures. A jump with zipline over a deep gorge, which again will make your pulse beat faster will await us. Horse riding with views of the Armenian mountains and a wonderful day is guaranteed! It is not all for today. We will go to a place, the way to which will make you think and regret that you are here only now. 4 km on foot along mountaintops and cliffs: it is good that this is a decent, not a climb. Upon arrival, we will settle in the houses on the trees, and we will spend the night in them. And what about lunch? Everything is very simple, we will prepare it ourselves since we are in a place where there is neither electricity nor gas. Depending on what we wish, soup or shish-kebabs will be prepared by us from products previously purchased at the grocery market, we are our own cooks on this day. Of course, we will cook all the food on fire. Medieval caves, bas-reliefs, waterfalls and fresh mountain air - all this will accompany us throughout this beautiful and peaceful day. No sound of cars, no fuss, only the murmur of water and the singing of birds. Dinner will also be prepared by us. Sleeping in a house in the forest with crystal clear air can give you a head spin.
Breakfast from homemade chicken eggs, tea, coffee and to the road! The road will not be easy, but quite fascinating. When we get out of the woods to the road, we will already have a car waiting for us, which will take us to the magnificent city of Dilijan. This is where “tap water flows, second in the world” (referring to the replica of Frunzik Mkrtchyan's character from the film “Mimino”). The guide will give us a tour of the city and tell about its main attractions. We will see the international school UWC Dilijan, a monument to the film "Mimino" and the picturesque nature of this region. Today, we will have less walking. Next, we will go to Lake Sevan - the largest freshwater lake in the region. We will explore the lake and its surroundings calmly and without haste. Lunch will be organized on the shore of the lake in one of the restaurants. Later in the evening, we will return to Yerevan. Everyone will have the evening at their discretion without being tied to the route. Maybe someone wants to just physically relax and stay at the hotel, and the other will choose a walk through the evening city. These sights and atmosphere cannot be described in words, it must be seen and felt.
