Adventurous Armenia

Many Possibilities for Great Adventure Await You in Armenia

The Armenian landscape, defined by its mountains, and consisting of seven different climate zones, is the ultimate destination for those who are inspired and invigorated by the great outdoors.

Chasing Adventure

Adventure is the release of adrenaline, a chance to conquer and tame nature, and test your strength. Armenia is perfect for those who seek unusual holidays instead of a typical beach vacation. While the country provides options for both, it’s in the hands of the travelers to decide whether they want adrenaline rushing experiences and exploration of breathtaking places or simply a relaxing vacation. 

If you’re ready to test your courage and capabilities there are many extreme activities you can try scattered throughout the country. If you’re interested in more spiritual experiences then once again you’ll be able to find many options specifically designed for you. Armenia is a country of opportunities and unforgettable experiences. It’s a country that has something for everyone. 

Waters of Armenia

The diverse landscapes of Armenia allow for the development of various extreme sports. This includes different types of water sports that not only promote healthy lifestyle to beginners, but are also a great getaway for extreme-sports enthusiasts. In Armenia, lake Sevan braces its broad shores and welcomes all wind - and kitesurfing aficionados to rent a board and enjoy the day. You don’t have to worry about your skills, whether you’re trying it out for the first time or you’ve experienced it many times before, you’ll enjoy the experience regardless. Canyoning assembles a bunch of techniques that are mandatory for outdoor survival: such as walking, rappelling, hiking, swimming, cliff jumping and rock climbing. Rafting in Debed River guarantees a huge amount of adrenaline and incredible adventures!​

Taking Over the Skies

If you are ready to convert to high-mountain diving or paragliding, this is the perfect place to be baptized. A flight in an air balloon over endless mountain ranges is guaranteed to be a thrill and will end with nothing less than champagne and an aeronaut certificate. Explore Armenia right from the skies as you hover over the beautiful and mesmerizing landscapes. While the landscapes are impressive from any angle, it’s impossible to forget the scenery as seen on a thrilling hot-air balloon ride.

​For the Real Explorers

​The most enjoyed rock climbing walls (5a-7 difficulty grade) nestled in the “Valley of Sorrows” stand ready to challenge you. Keep going, and you will reach Noravank monastery. In the very same valley you can also discover Archeri – meaning Bear's cave, which is a special treat for speleologists.
​Heading north through the country, into the high mountains of Tavush, explorers are encouraged to visit the local extreme park and go on horse treks that span the mountains of Dilijan and Yenokavan – vistas that rival the Swiss Alps. And don't miss the opportunity to soar from Armenian ziplines with open eyes to capture all its beauty.

​Hiking and Cycling

​Armenia is undoubtedly an ideal place for hiking and cycling. Mount Aragats, Azhdahak and Spitakasar in Geghama mountain range, as well as Khustup mountain are the most interesting sites for trekking. Some people prefer to take their own unexplored routes and discover something new for themselves which can’t possibly be shared with simple words. The extremely diverse terrains all brought together in a limited space gives avid trekkers an overwhelming sensation. Trekkers can also avoid bring overloaded by too much luggage, travel light, and stay overnight at the houses of locals.​
