Leave your daily hustle and bustle and accept the invitation to the fairy tale.

In the morning our professional team members will greet you in order to head to the Northern province of Lori. It is one of the most picturesque regions in Armenia, offering dramatic changes of the views, from lush forests to rocky mountains, and endless steppes.

We will stop at village Odzun situated on the left bank of the river Debed. Here, we will explore the 5th-7th century basilica church Odzun.

After, we will depart to The UNESCO World Heritage Listed Monastery Sanahin built in the 10th century, which is undeniably one of the precious landmarks of the region.

Next, we will drive towards another UNESCO listed Monastery, Haghpat, built approximately the same period as Sanahin. Both monasteries lie in the plain, green area, surrounded by numerous khachkars and splendid nature.

Later, we will head to Akhtala village and admire Akhtala Monastery, famous for its highly artistic frescoes, which cover the walls of the fortress. The perfect location of the structure offers the guests excellent viewpoint over divine surroundings of the province.
