Experience the beauty and history of Armenia with our 2-day tour from Tbilisi. This unforgettable journey will take you on a cultural and scenic adventure through some of the country's most iconic destinations, including Garni, Geghard, Dilijan, Sevanavank, and Yerevan.
On the first day of the tour, we will leave Tbilisi and cross the Georgian-Armenian border, heading towards Dilijan. Known as the "Switzerland of Armenia," Dilijan is a stunning town nestled in the heart of the Dilijan National Park. Here, you will have the opportunity to wander through the town's charming streets, admire its traditional architecture, and visit the Dilijan National Park, where you can see some of Armenia's beautiful flora and fauna.
Next, we will head to the breathtaking Sevanavank Monastery, situated on the shores of Lake Sevan, the largest body of water in Armenia. The monastery dates back to the 9th century and is famous for its unique cross-stones and beautiful architecture. We will spend some time here, enjoying the serene surroundings and learning about the history of the monastery.
In the evening, we will arrive in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, where we will check into our hotel and have some time to explore the city at our own pace. Yerevan is a vibrant city, full of energy and culture, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, and museums to visit.
On the second day of our tour, we continued our adventure through the stunning landscapes of Armenia. Our first stop was the Charents Arch, a simple yet fascinating monument named after the great Armenian poet Yeghishe Charents. The arch offers breathtaking views of the biblical Mount Ararat, and visitors can take in the scenery and snap some photos to capture this unforgettable moment.
Next, we visited the Geghard Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site that dates back to the 4th century. This incredible monastery is built partially into a mountain, and visitors can explore the intricate carvings, caves, and chapels that make up this impressive complex.
After a quick lunch break, we headed to the Garni Gorge, where we marvelled at the "Symphony of Stones." This natural monument is made up of stunning hexagonal and pentagonal basalt columns that seem almost too perfectly symmetrical to be natural. As we enjoyed the sounds of the flowing Azat River, we couldn't help but feel amazed by the power and beauty of nature.
Our last stop of the day was the Garni Temple, an iconic Hellenistic temple that dates back to the 1st century AD. We were awed by the temple's classical architecture and the dramatic mountainous backdrop that served as its setting.
As the day came to an end, we headed back to Tbilisi, filled with unforgettable memories and experiences from our two-day journey through Armenia. Don't miss this opportunity to discover the wonders of Armenia. Book your tour today and join us on a journey you'll never forget!
