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.

Cliffs and Mountains, Valleys and Gorges​

The Armenian landscape is defined by its cliffs and mountains, its valleys and gorges. The massive ridges divide the country along its axes, rendering huge areas unreachable by regular transport, while giving way to large expanses of lush forests in the north, tunnels through mountain chains that become passages to other worlds, rolling green hills that leave behind the fog and rain and enter a new day of sun and summer frolic.

​​Main Destinations

​As the seasons change, the visual elements and approach to nature change as well. As green turns to orange and deep shades of red, the forests of Dilijan National Pa​rk open up to mushroom pickers and hikers who were avoiding the spring and summer humidity. When the first snow comes in November, skiers start pining for the opening of Tsakhkadzor’s and Jermuk’s Ski Resorts, while the most extreme outdoor enthusiasts prepare their winter gear for cold ascents of Mt. Ara and Mt. Aragats.

​Summer Time Joy 

As the snow melts and new life springs into the landscape, birdwatchers flock to the hills of arid hills of the Arax Valley in the hopes of sighting eagles, falcons and hawks. Summer, probably the most popular season among tourists, pushes everyone out of Yerevan’s heat to enjoy and experience the shores of Lake Sevan, one of the countless hot springs, rivers, waterfalls, forests, or horseback riding across seas of grass, while others delve into their adventures via bungee jumping, zip lining, paragliding, biking, camping, hiking, mountain and rock climbing, to name a few.

Want to feel the extreme and experience the power of nature? This trip will take you to the northern part of Armenia. Starting from Yerevan you will travel to the well known ski resort town Tsakhkadzor. After a city walk and the Kecharis Monastery visit, you will then travel to the Lake Sevan, one of the largest high altitude lakes in the world. Take a break and try the local cuisine admiring the breathtaking nature. Continue your trip to Dilijan, a 16 century town on the outskirts of the large National park in central Armenia. Get introduced to the Haghartsin, the Monastery of the "Dance of the Eagles". Take a coffee break and head to the Apaga Resort and take a night stay. Good morning or Bari luys! Adventures and fun are waiting for you at the Yell Extreme Park!
