The country’s mountains, plummeting valleys and enticing cities come alive in the springtime. Choose from these five options reaching across diverse regions of the South Caucasus nation.
A country in the South Caucasus, Armenia, is a land of natural drama, characterised by mountains interspersed with ancient, solitary churches. Come from March to explore the depths of the Caucasus Mountains on hiking trails, swim in thermal pools overhanging verdant gorges or roam around city parks turned technicolour in the springtime bloom.
The Transcaucasian Trail (starting from Dilijan, Tavush region in the north, extends up till Vorotan, Syunik region in the south) is best for hiking, Jermuk (Vayots Dzor region) is best for spa breaks, Debed Canyon (Lori region) is best for nature lovers, Gyumri (Shirak region) is best for cultural explorers, and Yerevan is best for urban living.
Sprawling beds of wildflowers come alive this time of the year, intensifying the beauty of the Mount Ararat scenery. Still feeling adventurous? Helicopter tours offer a unique perspective on the capital city and its surroundings.
