Start your exciting day in Armenia on an extraordinary way, by accompanying your driver-guide as well as the birds' expert-guide, who will greet you right from the lobby of your hotel to delve you into the exploratory mission of the local birds!

 

The route of our journey will take us to the Ararat province, where the Armash town with its fish ponds is located. These ponds are home to a great diversity of local and migrating birds from the neighbouring countries. Armenia hosts more than 350 species of birds making it a perfect birding destination with its diverse flora and fauna. The expert guide will introduce to us the endemic species, as well as Little Bittern, Purple, and Squacco Herons, and Spoonbill, great Reed, and Paddyfield Warbler, whilst open waters have Marbled and Black-crowned Night-heron, Ferruginous Ducks, and Red-crested Pochards, Whiskered, White-winged birds, among others.

 

After the observation, we will head to the most popular wine village Areni, located in the province of Vayots Dzor, in order to taste unique Armenian wine. We will have a good Armenian wine in the family vineyard and learn about the history of the 6100-year-old wine-making tradition of Armenia.

 

Later, our discoveries will bring us to the admirable gorge Amaghu, where one of the most enchanting monasteries in Armenia is situated. We will unpack the ancient Noravank Monastery and unveil its divine surrounding nature. The enormous red cliffs and centuries-old structure will create memorable pictures and impressions of this astonishing landmark.
