Things to Do in Armenia
Want to know some of the standout things to do in Armenia? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...
1. The Monasteries of Haghpat and Sanahin, Lorri Region
Right across Armenia, the country is dotted with countless ancient monasteries. But the two UNESCO protected Byzantine monasteries of Haghpat and Sanahin are surely the most remarkable.
2. Anapat Cave, Yenokavan Canyon
One of several caves in the Yenokavan Canyon, the Anapat Cave stands out for its collection of pre-Christian face carvings and Christian altar carvings inside.
3. Geghard Monastery, Goght Village
Essentially a combination of numbers one and two, the Geghard Monastery (partially hewn out of a mountain) is another of Armenia’s unique religious sites. In addition to the 13th century cathedral, the surrounding area is riddled with caves full of yet more early carvings and paintings.
4. The Genocide Memorial and Museum, Tsitsenakaberd Park
The memorial is made up of 12 stone blocks representing the 12 provincial regions of Armenia involved in the Turkish genocide of 1915. The museum offers guided tours that provide additional commentary on its four permanent exhibition rooms.
5. Horse Riding, Northern Armenia
From day treks to seven-day camping trips, many different tours are available across a variety of routes. Suitable for all abilities, the free-range horseback rides across Armenia's colorful mountain scenery are definitely an exciting experience.
