Armenia Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Armenia in a way like no other. Snuggled within the Caucasus, with Asia to the west and Europe to the east, Armenia is a small nation with remarkable spirit. There are few countries with such a tragic past, and Armenia’s resilience is a testament to their people. Our tours in Armenia will introduce you to the famously friendly Armenians, who offer a deeper understanding of the country, along with a fresh appreciation for fine brandy. We’ll take you from the Ararat Brandy Factory or the Vernissage Flea Market, to the historic old quarter with gorgeous 17th century houses. Stroll through the beautiful parks, visit the excellent museums, or climb the grand staircase of the Yerevan Cascade to revel in the breathtaking view over the city. You’ll also see Mount Ararat and the spectacular landscapes beyond Yerevan. With ancient monasteries, dazzling lakes and traditional villages sprinkled between soaring mountains, you’ll wonder why the country remains so untouched by tourism. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
