DAY 01

Khor-Virap, Areni, Noravank, Excavation Site

A day dedicated to the exploration of Southern Armenia combining the magic of Armenia's finest medieval architecture with stunning landscapes. 

  • The first stop of your trip is Khor Virap. The most sacred pilgrimage destination in Armenia not only because it's the only place in Armenia where you'll get the best view of the biblical Mount Ararat, but this is where St. Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 13 years by the King Tiridates III for preaching Christianity. 

  • Next stop is the Monastery of Noravank, an architectural gemstone nestled among brick-red cliffs, just above a deep gorge. It's only here where you can see a bas-relief with the representation of Father God with almond-shaped eyes which look far ahead. 

  • Drive to Areni village, the cradle of viticulture! This is where the world's ancient winery was discovered recently (6000years old)! Winery tour and wine tasting (about 11 sorts of wine including pomegranate and cherry wines).

  • 50 USD Per Adult (* Maximum travelers: 6)
