Welcome to Armenia

Tourism has brought new opportunities and development possibilities to Armenia in recent years. Hundreds, if not thousands, of guesthouses, have opened around the country, offering tourists an authentic rural experience.
Eco tourists love Armenia for their inexpensive organic food and sustainable travel. The guesthouses in particular use freshly collected produce from their own farms.
Armenia is a destination for those inspired by the great outdoors and Caucasus nature. The mountain ranges, volcanic red colour of the rocks, endless valleys and unique gorges create a perfect target for those who long for Ecotourism and Caucasian adventures.
Good news for hikers and outdoor enthusiasts! The Transcaucasian Trail, emerged in 2019, is a great place to start your adventurous tour around Armenia.
And don't forget about the millennia-long history of winemaking. No tour in Armenia can go without a visit to the cradle of the country's winemaking - the village of Areni - or without one or two (or three) wine and brandy tasting sessions.
