Adventures lead to Armenia
(Extreme tourism in Armenia)

Wherever you go in Armenia, you will see lush forests, green landscapes, waterfalls, crystal clear streams, valleys, mountains and landscapes of amazing beauty. Here you can break away from reality and enjoy your vacation 100%. The view of Mount Ararat is one of the favorites for Armenians. Although the mountain is no longer on the territory of the country, it is considered one of the symbols of Armenia. In clear weather, Ararat is clearly visible from Yerevan and other regions around it.

Lake Sevan, which you will definitely visit, is one of the most stunning natural wonders of Armenia, and it is one of the main reasons to visit Armenia. The mountain lake of amazing beauty is located at an altitude of 1905 meters above sea level. This amazing fresh water reservoir is one of the world's largest alpine lakes. This is the perfect place to take a dip on a hot summer day. But swimming is not the only thing to do on the lake. For example, we will definitely take a boat ride, and also visit the Sevanavank Monastery, from where there is a breathtaking view of the crystal clear blue lake.

Other activities you will be able to do on this tour are: zip-lining, rock climbing, visiting the ropes park, river rafting, raft sliding and jumping into the fast river water and off-road driving on hilly roads.

It's a sin not to mention Armenian cuisine. The dishes here are varied and tasty due to the use of a large number of spices and herbs that give the food a special taste and aroma. Here you can find delicious dishes prepared with fresh vegetables, meat, fruits and other ingredients. Armenians love delicious food. And we are sure you too :) Therefore, when traveling around this wonderful country, be sure to try such dishes as: khorovats (barbecue), dolma, harissa, spas, gapama, kyufta and others.

Armenia has a unique culture, unique natural landscapes and we are always happy to show you the very essence of the country. Come with us, you won't regret it!

From here there is a stunning view of the gorge and mountains.
