1-Day Armenia: Tour to Khor Virap, Noravank and Areni

per person

Description: Along with a unique history and culture, Armenia is also very famous for its stunning landscapes. In our one-day tour, we combined a couple of monasteries that offer not only a rich history and unique architecture, but also amazingly beautiful mountains and cliffs in the background. This tour is for those who love to capture the best photos from their journey.

YEREVAN – KHOR VIRAP – NORAVANK – ARENI – YEREVAN
In the morning, visit Khor Virap monastery, which is famous for its amazing view of Armenia’s symbol: the majestic Mount Ararat. Name “Khor Virap” means a deep dungeon – according to the legend, St. Gregory the Illuminator, the patron saint of Armenia, was imprisoned here for 13 years.

Continue to Noravank – the 13th-century monastery situated on a hill with stunning views. The best part of the sight is the brick-red cliffs that surround the area.

Drive through a narrow canyon and reach the Areni cave – one of the richest archaeological sites in Armenia, where the oldest shoe, winery, brain and straw skirt have been found.

Near the cave, visit Areni winery, where you will have the opportunity to taste a local Areni wine.

Drive back to Yerevan. Drop off at your hotel.
