Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Republic Square, Yerevan Armenia

You arrive in Yerevan, and you're met by our Feel Armenia team. Welcome to Armenia! You will be transferred to your hotel. As you will be quite tired after the flight(s), we haven't planned anything for this day. Instead, you will stay at the hotel, relax and get prepared for the upcoming days. What is next?

Stop At: Khor Virap, Artashat, Lusarat Armenia

Where did Christianity start? Well, it goes back to the end of the third century when Grigor the Enlightener was being torched just because he was trying to prove Christ’s existence. The place of his sufferings is Khor Virap. The monastery faces towards biblical Mount Ararat. So, we can say that everything has started from here, and then has moved to Echmiadzin.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Saint Gayane Church, Issy-les-Moulineaux St., Vagharshapat Armenia

The spiritual city Echmiadzin is waiting for you where you will touch the roots of Christianity. The churches St Gayane and St Hripsime are located in the city of Echmiadzin not far from Echmiadzin monastery. They are the three virgins preaching Christianity in the late 3rd century.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Alex and Marie Manoogian Treasury House Museum, Access on Araratyan St, Vagharshapat Armenia

The next stop will be at Echmiadzin monastery. You will see the first monastery in the world and visit the museum where a lot of valuable and highly important pieces of art are kept such as the Holy Lance (Geghard) which pierced the side of Christ and the relics of Noah's Ark in a reliquary.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Zvartnots Temple, Vagharshapat Armenia

And not far from Echmiadzin, another piece of artwork stands in ruins but that doesn’t spoil its beauty and perfect harmony with the surroundings. Zvartnots will be in front of you and Ararat. After an unforgettable day, you will be back to the capital city Yerevan.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: The Monastery of Geghard, Geghard Armenia

Start the morning with Christian spirit and make your soul harmonized with your mind in Geghard monastery. The morning liturgy will be the ideal beginning for the day. The monastery dates back to the 4th century. It is one of the greatest masterpieces of Armenian architecture and culture and its might and power are just enormous. After the incredible flow of emotions, continue the route to Garni.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Garni Temple, Geghard Monastery Road H3, Garni Armenia

You have surely heard about the period of history when people were worshipping different gods and goddesses, and that period was paganism. Armenians were pagan before adopting Christianity. And the only pagan temple existing from that period is standing in quite a large village called Garni, where you are going to visit today. The Temple of Garni dates back to the first century AD. Actually, the temple is not the only thing you can see here in Garni. There are a number of churches, astounding nature and majestic mountains. Right here you will have a special chance to listen to Duduk concert organized just for you.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Garni Gorge, Route Below the Garni Temple, Garni 2215 Armenia

Moreover, the Symphony of Stones is out of this world. Words are so weak to describe the natural wonder, which is down-to-Earth but at the same time seems to be heavenly. Take a jeep tour or hiking tour to Symphony of Stones and enjoy the beauty.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Monastery Sevanavank, next the Holy Mother of God Church, Sevan Armenia

Yes, the trip continues. You are heading to the greenest area in Armenia, but first, savour the incredible treasure of Armenia, Lake Sevan. The Sevan is one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. On the peninsula stretching into the lake you will see the mighty monastic complex Sevanavank.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Haghartsin Monastery, Dilijan Armenia

Then, let’s continue the way to Dilijan, the city with lavish vegetation and forests where your lungs will fill with super-fresh air. Not far from Dilijan you will visit Haghartsin Monastery. The magnificent gem is in the middle of lavish forests. The monastery has been a significant centre of education and culture since the 13th century.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Karmravor Church, Khachatur Abovyan St., Ashtarak Armenia

The trip starts from Yerevan, and we are heading to Ashtarak city where you will see the handful of churches. They are Karmravor, Tsiranavor, and Spitakavor. The churches date back to the 4th, 5th and 14th centuries. The names of the churches are colours. Karmravor stands for red, Tsiranavor stands for the colour of apricot, and Spitakavor stands for white. The legend about the churches is really interesting.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Amberd Fortress, Byurakan Armenia

Then, get prepared, because you are going to visit Amberd fortress. The fortress dates back to the 7th century and it represents the wonderful fortress construction of Armenia. Amberd means “a fortress in the clouds", and it truly is.

Stop At: Vahramashen Church, Amberd Rd., Byurakan Armenia

Not far from the fortress you will find another gorgeous construction. It is Vahramashen monastery dating back to the 11th century. And one special remark. You will be on the slopes of Mt Aragats, so you will have an opportunity to smell the special fresh air.
