Travel Director

Visit Ararat Brandy factory and try Armenian cognac

Immerse yourself in Armenian culture and sample the finest Armenian brandy at the Ararat Brandy Factory. Founded in 1877 during the reign of the Russian Empire, the Ararat Brandy Factory is now the primary Armenian brandy production company in Yerevan, and it’s one of the top Armenia tourist attractions.

Experience famous Armenian hospitality with the locals

The highlight of any Armenia travel experience is the welcoming embrace of the locals, which can be summed up with this Armenian proverb: “Guest in a house - three days he’s a guest; on the fourth, he’s a younger brother,” Wherever you go, you’ll find smiling Armenians who will be happy to share stories about their country with you.

Explore the charming streets of Yerevan

Yerevan is the exuberant capital of Armenia, humming with historical and cultural treasures. Take to the streets with our Local Specialists on your Armenia tour to discover historic monuments, ornate gardens and Kond, the 17th-century old quarter where Persian, Muslim, and Ottoman houses line the tiny alleyways.

Climb the steps of Yerevan Cascade for the best view

Set at the heart of Yerevan, the Yerevan Cascade is a monumental staircase, with terraces decorated with beautiful statues and flowers. Climbing the staircase for the panoramic view is one of the best things to do in Yerevan. Once you reach the top, you can take in the breathtaking sights of Mount Ararat and the city below.

Stroll through Vernissage Flea Market

One of the best open air markets in Europe, Vernissage Flea Market is a great place to find a memorable souvenir and get a taste of life in Yerevan. The laneways have almost anything you could imagine, including handmade jewellery, woven rugs, ceramics, paintings, woodwork, clothes and vintage pieces.

Our top 5 things to do in Armenia

We’ll show you the most incredible things to do in Armenia, from climbing the Yerevan Cascade, to sampling fine Armenian brandy and meeting the kind-hearted locals.

History Museum

Located in Yerevan, the History Museum of Armenia is home to 400,000 artefacts, with highlights including an ancient collection of Armenian coins, a large collection of Bronze items from the 3rd to 2nd millennium BC, and a cuneiform inscription from 782 BC about the founding of the city of Erebuni.

Parajanov Museum

Created as a tribute to Sergei Parajanov, a Soviet Armenian director and artist, the Parajanov Museum is a celebration of his artistic and literary legacy. There are around 1,400 exhibits over two floors, with unpublished screenplays, drawings, artworks, original posters and signed letters and gifts by famous visitors including Vladimir Putin.


Officially known as the Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts, the Matenadaran is the largest archive of Armenian manuscripts in the world. Named after Mesrop Mashtots, the founder of the Armenian alphabet, the museum is an incredible showcase of Armenian and international written cultures.

Best museums in Armenia

When you tour Armenia with Trafalgar, we’ll show you the country’s ancient history and culture through their incredible museums.

Armenian khorovats (pork barbecue)

Traditional Armenian khorovat is made from chunks of meat, including beef, pork, lamb or chicken, grilled on a skewer. Khorovats are a much-loved part of any Armenian gathering, from family picnics to wedding celebrations, and grilling is a passionate part of Armenian culture.

A celebratory meat stew made with lamb or beef, khashlama is a favorite traditional dish of Armenia and the Caucasus region. The Armenian version is typically mixed with tomatoes, potatoes, capsicums, onions and herbs and spices for a warm, hearty dish.

A popular national dish of Armenia, dolma is made of minced pork or beef (or a mixture of both), or vegetables wrapped in fresh grape leaves or steamed cabbage leaves. There are also some special ingredients such as mint, parsley and oregano to make a variety of this dish that is unique to Armenia.

Best food in Armenia

Sampling delicious Armenian food is one of the best parts of any Armenia trip, and our Local Specialists will show you the best places to taste the country’s best-loved dishes.

What to pack for Armenia

People packing for a tour

The Armenian dram is the official currency of Armenia, so stock up on some dram before your Armenia tour.

Armenian phrasebook

The Armenian alphabet and language is unlike any other in the world. Learning a few Armenian phrases will earn some smiles of appreciation from the friendly Armenians.

The Armenian climate swings between sub-zero temperatures in winter and 104°F in summer, so pack some layers to be ready for all conditions.

Adaptor plug

In Armenia, standard voltage is 230 V and the power plugs and sockets are of type C and F, with typical European two-pin plugs.

Comfortable shoes

From walking the magical streets of Yerevan, to climbing the massive staircase of the Yerevan Cascade, you’ll need a sturdy pair of walking shoes in Armenia.

Armenia Tours & Vacations

Sunset at Yerevan City, view with majestic Ararat mountain, Armenia

Few countries so regularly elicit the response of “Where’s that?” as Armenia.

Couched in between such obscure neighbors as   Iran ,   Georgia ,   Azerbaijan   and several self-declared (and rarely recognized) republics, this little country is hardly positioned as a convenient summer holiday. Yet for many, herein lies its appeal. A country of hauntingly beautiful natural scenery, prevailing political stability, strong ties to the past and exceedingly warm local hospitality, holidaying in this Caucasus jewel makes for an experience enormously rewarded.

History and government.

Located at the crossroads of  Europe , western Asia and the Middle East, Armenia has endured a past that’s proven nothing if not eventful. Alternately divided and conquered by the Romans, Persians, Arabs, Mongols, Ottoman Turks and Russians over the centuries, Armenians have had to work hard at retaining a national identity – the offshoot of which is an avid patriotism that permeates every dimension of national life. The country became the world’s first Christian country back in 301 AD, had developed its own alphabet barely 100 years later and suffered the 20th century’s first genocide (in which it is estimated up to one and a quarter million of its population were killed).

Following a short-lived taste of independence from 1918-1922, the country submitted to Soviet rule under the Bolsheviks. A brief period of stability ended when Stalin started widespread purges of the populace and the persecution of the church. After Stalin’s death, Krushchev brought an era under which the country flourished technologically and economically. But these reforms weren’t enough to placate the Armenian population, who were among the first to let their dissatisfaction be known with the advent of glasnost. Following some demonstrations and violent clashes in 1991, the country became the first non-Baltic republic to declare independence and secede from the Soviet Union.

Today, Armenia is a stable country with a democratically elected leadership and economy that’s on the up. Some tensions still exist with Azerbaijan and massive emigration over the decades has resulted in a diaspora that outnumbers the country’s populace but, considering the history, Armenia has emerged from, the country’s future is looking comparatively bright.

Best time to visit Armenia

With almost half of the country at over 650 feet (2,000 meters) elevation, a dry, high-altitude climate typifies much of Armenia. May and June or September and October are generally considered the best times to go on a trip to Armenia, as the weather is warm but mild and the flowers are in bloom.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

Do I need a visa to travel to Armenia?


Most nationalities require a visa to enter Armenia. We recommend obtaining an e-visa in advance using the following link:

Fill in the requested information and submit to receive a link to the application form emailed to you. Please use the address of your finishing point hotel for the Contact Information in Armenia. You will need to upload a scanned passport sized photo and a passport copy to complete your application. In the case that the website is down, it may be possible to obtain a visa on arrival at the land border. Please contact us if you are having difficulty accessing the website.

Is tipping customary in Armenia?

Tipping is becoming increasingly common in Armenia, particularly at restaurants and cafés, with rounding up the bill or adding 10% the general rule. Some restaurants have started adding service fees, though this won’t necessarily be going to your waiter. Tipping for other services is not customary, save for taxi drivers where rounding up the fare is common.

What is the internet access like in Armenia?

There’s no shortage of internet cafés in Yerevan (some 24-hours) and other larger cities outside of the capital.

Can I use my mobile phone while in Armenia?

Internet coverage throughout Armenia is reliable and extensive. Cheap, convenient and easy to come by, temporary pre-paid SIM cards are a good option. Vivacell and Orange both have booths offering free SIM-cards at the airport and offer better English services than their competitors.

What are the toilets like in Armenia?

Western-style sitting toilets are the standard in Armenia, although on occasion one may still encounter squat-style toilets in rural areas.

What will it cost for a...?

Coffee in a café = 700 Dram 0.5 litre bottle of beer from a supermarket = 380 Dram Meal in a fast food restaurant = 1,800 Dram Restaurant meal in the CBD = 3,000 Dram

Can I drink the water in Armenia?

Armenia’s tap water is generally considered safe to drink. For the overly cautious, bottled water can be readily procured, though we recommend water purification tablets or asking your leader where filtered water can be found to cut down on unnecessary landfill.

Are credit cards widely accepted in Armenia?

Credit cards are accepted in Yerevan and other major cities, though it’s best not to rely too heavily on them. Visa is the more commonly accepted of the major credit cards brands.

What is ATM access like in Armenia?

ATMs are common in Yerevan and other major cities, less so in small towns. Visa cards (with the Visa Electron) are the best bet, and some local ATMs are also connected to the Plus and Maestro systems.

Armenia - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

With a unique blend of modern architecture and ancient ruins and relics, Armenia has a history that is sure to fascinate those who visit this country

As the majestic peak of Mount Ararat looms in the distance, Armenia waits to be discovered all over again. With a unique blend of modern architecture and ancient ruins and relics, Armenia has a history that is sure to fascinate those who take a trip to this beautiful country a part of their future.

Tour Highlights

  • Be sure to explore Yerevan, the capital city, and visit the Matenadaran library, home to ancient manuscripts of both Greek and Armenian antiquity.
  • Take a stroll through Republic Square (formerly Lenin Square) and enjoy the beautiful singing fountains that spray jets of brightly lit water high into the air.
  • Visit the medieval chapel of Katoghike Church that still serves as a house of prayer today.
  • Take the kids for a day of fun at Yerevan Water World; with indoor and outdoor attractions, this is a great option any time of year!

Travel Tips

  • Don’t be overcharged for your transportation; a ride in a taxi should cost between 100-150 Dram per kilometer; if the meter is running faster than that, they may be over-charging you.
  • When on a holiday in Armenia be smart and do not keep all of your documents, cash, or credit cards in the same place. Be sure to secure your valuables, especially when using public transportation, which can be overcrowded at times.
  • Check with your mobile provider to ensure that they offer coverage in Armenia, as not all companies do. Make sure friends and family back home know how to get in touch with you.

If you are in Armenia for the first time and don’t know much about destinations you are planning to visit and don’t have an itinerary planned , then one of the best options is to take one of these Armenia tours from Yerevan that are very affordable and for every type of traveler.

What to Pack for Your Tour From Yerevan

Armenia experiences hot summers and fairly cold winters, so pack accordingly based on the season! We do recommend bringing a few of the items below regardless of the season (but, of course, sunscreen is more useful in the shoulder seasons and summer).

If you have additional questions on what to bring to Armenia, please feel free to ask!

During the high season, Armenia can be a very hot destination; with temperatures reaching 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) regularly.

So, make sure you have your sunscreen with you because there are many sites that are sitting under the open skies such as Khor Virap or Tatev Monastery where you need some protection from the scorching sun.

Power bank 

The item that every traveler needs is a good power bank . We definitely recommend taking one with you so you can be in reach and have the ability to take photos with your devices.

Some tours might take an entire day and you may not have a place to charge your phone throughout the day, making a power bank essential!

Walking shoes

All tours that you will take have comfortable transportation, but during the exploration of different sites, you will need some good walking shoes.

Armenia is a very rocky country, especially outside of Yerevan. These Yerevan day tours will likely involve a lot of walking around when you’re at the sights and we can not recommend wearing good and comfortable shoes enough!

Water bottle 

Armenia has great quality mountain water and for the most part, the water is free and comes from water fountains known as a Pulpulak .

In the hot season, take your water bottle with you so you can fill up it from the many water fountains throughout the country and can stay hydrated.

15 Best Places to Visit in Armenia

Armenia is becoming an increasingly popular tourist attraction, with the small but charming nation boasting a rich history.

Armenia, which was the first country to declare Christianity as its national religion, boasts some of Europe’s most stunning views, with the peak of Mount Ararat dominating the country’s skyline. The mountain is Armenia’s national symbol despite its peak lying just over the Turkish border and Ararat is considered holy by locals due to its mention in The Bible – it is where Noah’s Ark landed.

Armenia is home to countless beautiful monasteries and they are often found in areas of truly outstanding natural beauty. Armenia’s capital, Yerevan, is one of the most rapidly developing cities in the whole of Europe as the nation continues to embrace tourism. Let’s have a look at the best places to visit in Armenia !


By far the largest city in Armenia, the capital Yerevan is a great place to start for anyone wishing to explore Armenia. The city is home to the grand Republic Square, while climbing the Cascade to see the city’s monument to Soviet victory in the Second World War is a must.

Yerevan is a deeply historic city and visiting the Armenian Genocide Memorial is a must to learn more about the nation’s troubled past. Vernissage market is worth visiting too – it is open at the weekend – while a walk through the Hrazdan gorge is also highly recommended.

Much of what Armenia has to offer can be explored during day trips from Yerevan, which is known as the City of Cafes.

Yerevan is also home to Blue Mosque, which is the only mosque in the whole of the country, as well as Levon’s Amazing Underground World, which is one of Europe’s most unusual attractions.

2. Shikahogh State Reserve

Shikahogh State Reserve

The second largest forest reserve in Armenia, Shikahogh State Reserve is so unspoiled that large parts of it remains unexplored to this day.

The forest is believed to be home to animals including leopards, bears, wild goats and vipers and it is also thought that Shikahogh State Reserve has about 1,100 species of plants, although its fauna has not yet been fully explored. The reserve was threatened by a planned highway in 2005, but environments successfully lobbied for the forest’s future to be protected.

The reserve also has a number of very beautiful waterfalls to enjoy.

3. Lake Sevan

Lake Sevan

Lake Sevan, found in the heart of Armenia, is the country’s largest lake and a beautiful place to visit during a break in the country. The lake is surrounded by some stunning monasteries – the most impressive of them being arguably the Sevanavank Monastery – providing a glorious scenic backdrop to a relaxing trip.

Windsurfing is among the recreation activities available at the lake, which also has a wide choice of excellent seafood restaurants along its shore.

Lake Sevan has a number of popular beaches and, as the country has no coastline, this is the best place in Armenia to sunbathe, with Sevan Bay and its surrounding mountains providing spectacular scenery.

4. Dilijan National Park

Dilijan National Park

Armenia has four national parks and Dilijan national park may be the most beautiful of the lovely quartet. The park, which was only established in 2002, is famous for its medicinal mineral water springs, as well as its natural monuments.

Many of Armenia’s more important cultural locations can be found within the grounds of the park, such as Haghartsin Monastery, Goshavank Monastery  and Jukhtak Vank, as well as Matosavank Monastery and the Akhnabat church.

The Aghestev and Getik river basins are also both within the boundaries of Dilijan national park.

5. Mount Aragats

Mount Aragats

Mount Aragats is one of Armenia’s most stunning natural sights, with the dormant volcano located in the north of the country. It is Armenia’s highest peak and there is a lot of rock art to be enjoyed around its base, with paintings of animals and human-like figures dating back hundreds of years.

Snow covers the peak almost all year-round but Mount Aragats can be climbed, with July, August and September the best times of the year to attempt the hike.

The southernmost of the four peaks is the easiest to climb, while the northern peak, at around 4,000 metres, is the most challenging.

6. Lake Arpi

Lake Arpi

While Lake Sevan can be extremely crowded during the peak tourist season, Lake Arpi has a much more relaxed feel.

Used for irrigation and hydropower production, Lake Arpi is also the source of the Akhurian River. In 2009 a new park was established around the lake to protect the natural environment, with around 100 species of birds known to live in the area. Lake Arpi also hosts rich flora and fauna and is a Ramsar Convention protected site.

Lake Arpi has one the largest colonies of Armenian Gull and its recreation activities include camping and walking tours.

7. Noravank


Monasteries are one of Armenia’s defining characteristics and the example at Noravank is one of the most beautiful in the whole country. Sheer brick-red cliffs shield the monastery, which was built in the 13th century.

Noravank is famous for its Astvatsatsin (Holy Mother of God) church, while the story goes that the monastery was saved by God himself when Armenia was conquered by the Mongols hundreds of years ago.

If you only choose to go to one monastery during a trip to Armenia, Noravank would be an extremely good selection – thousands of people visit every year.


The second largest city in Armenia, Gyumri is well worth a visit for anyone heading to the country for the first time. Perhaps the best place from which to enjoy the sights of Gyumri is from the Black Fortress on the hill that overlooks the city, while the massive Mother Armenia statue can also be found nearby.

Many of the most important cultural institutions of Armenia are in Gyumri, such as the Dzitoghtsyan Museum of Social Life and National Architecture of Gyumri, as well as the Aslamazyan Sisters House-Museum and the Sergey Merkurov House-Museum.

The Kumayri Historic District is Gyumri’s oldest area, with a thousand ancient buildings found here.

9. Vanadzor


Armenia’s third major city is Vanadzor, which is located in the north of the country. Vanadzor is an ideal base from which to explore the beautiful Lori region, which is certainly one of the best places to visit in Armenia.

The Vanadzor Botanical Garden is one of the finest tourist attractions in the city, while visitors should also consider checking out the Vanadzor fine art museum. The many mineral springs of the Lori region mean there are a wide range of terrific spas to enjoy in and around Vanadzor.

Although Vanadzor is primarily an industrial city, it also houses many theatres, such as the Bohem Chamber Theatre of Vanadzor and the Vanadzor Puppet Theatre.

10. Amberd Fortress

Amberd Fortress

Dating back to the seventh century, Amberd Fortress is one of the most stunning places to visit in Armenia. Formerly among the Armenian Kingdom’s primary military-defensive points, the fortress can be reached in about an hour from the capital city Yerevan.

However, snowfall can make the fortress inaccessible during the winter months, with the weather usually improving by late May. The view from the top of the fortress is truly breathtaking, while the building itself is also stunning.

Amberd Fortress is a short trip from the village of Byurakan, home of the Byurakan Observatory.

11. Tsaghkadzor


Armenia’s mountainous scenery makes it ideal for winter sports and the country’s best ski resort can be found at Tsaghkadzor in the heart of the country. Ski lifts are paid for by the ride and are among the most affordable in Europe.

Tsaghkadzor boasts some of the finest hotels in the country, while the resort also has one of the nation’s biggest entertainment centers in the form of the Senator Royale casino complex.

Tsaghkadzor also has the Kecharis Monastery, which is one of Armenia’s most important religious complexes, dating back to the start of the 11th century.

12. Upper Azat Valley

Upper Azat Valley

The Upper Azat Valley is one of Armenia’s World Heritage Sites, partly due to the incredible Geghard Monastery for which the region is most famous. The main chapel was built 800 years ago but the history of the monastery goes all the way back to the fourth century, when it was founded by Gregory the Illuminator.

According to legend, the Geghard Monastery once housed one of the spears that was used to crucify Jesus Christ, brought to Armenia by Apostle Thaddeus, and as such it is one of Armenia’s most important religious sites.

The Upper Azat Valley is also home to the St Astvatsatsin (Holy Mother of God) chapel, which is partially carved out of the rock.

13. Karahunj Observatory

Karahunj Observatory

Often referred to internationally as Armenia’s version of Britain’s Stonehenge, Karahunj is one of the most fascinating places to visit during a break in Armenia.

Located close to the city of Sisian in the Syunik province, Karahunj is made up of well over 200 massive stone tombs, while the main area sees 40 stones standing in a circular formation, supposedly built in honour of the Armenian main God, Ari, named after the Sun.

A small museum in Sisian is dedicated to findings that have been made at Karahunj, which is claimed to be the oldest observatory of its kind in the world.

14. Khor Virap

Khor Virap

Views of Mount Ararat can be enjoyed from all over Armenia, but perhaps the best scenery of the mountain can be found from the Khor Virap monastery, which is definitely also worth visiting in its own right.

This location is one of the most important historic sites in Armenia’s history as it was where Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 14 years before he cured King Trdat III of his disease. The King then converted to Christianity, paving the way for Armenia’s religious future.

As such, Khor Virap is a popular spot for Armenian weddings today, while the underground chamber in which Gregory the Illuminator was held can be visited during a trip to Khor Virap, which is among Armenia’s most visited pilgrimage sites as a result.


Our final selection for the best places to visit in Armenia is Dvin, one of the country’s oldest cities – in fact, it was the capital of Armenia in medieval times. A sixth century BC fortress was also once situated in Dvin, according to Unesco, while incredible artefacts are regularly found in this part of Armenia.

More modern sights can also be enjoyed in the city, such as the St. Harutyun Church in Dvin, which was built in 2000.

Dvin once housed the Cathedral of St. Grigor, but all that remains of the building today is the stone foundations that have been uncovered by archeologists.

15 Best Places to Visit in Armenia:

  • Shikahogh State Reserve
  • Dilijan National Park
  • Mount Aragats
  • Amberd Fortress
  • Tsaghkadzor
  • Upper Azat Valley
