Description

On this 9-hour tour visit Lake Sevan, pearl of this mountainous country and one of the largest freshwater high-altitude lakes in Eurasia. You will also visit Sevanavank, a monastery complex on Sevan peninsula. Currently a religious seminary functions here, which is not readily open to the public, the peninsula can be named the very point from where the whole beauty of the Lake Sevan is seen. You will then see Dilijan, otherwise referred to as 'Armenian Switzerland' for its fantastic natural forests. The town is a part of Dilijan National Park. The next stop is Haghartsin, a 10th century monastery which has been recently renovated by donation of Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qassimi, the Ruler of Sharjah, who was impressed by the monastery when visited it. Goshavank is the final stop surrounded by green territories.

Make your way to a central location in Yerevan for 10am departure to northwestern Armenia, where the first stop of the day is Lake Sevan, a high altitude fresh-water lake with spectacular views of the mountains. 

Following your time at Lake Sevan, continue to the 9th-century Monastery Sevanavank, whose profile is especially dramatic with a background of turquoise lake water and blue sky. 

Make a third short stop at Dilijan, a beautiful mountain town on the banks of Aghstev River, then pause for lunch at a restaurant where you can choose from four set meal options (own expense). 

After lunch, head to Goshavank Monastery, founded by the famous medieval scientist Mkhitar Gosh, with an unrivaled khachkar, or cross-stone, that dates back to the 13th century. 

The last stop is Haghartsin Monastery, set in the woodlands of Tavush region, with a history that stretches to the 10th century, a cluster of beautiful religious buildings, and an ancient oak tree. Following your time at Haghartsin Monastery, begin the return trip to Yerevan, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
