Full description
Start your day trip at 9:00 AM with a hotel pickup. Drive for approximately 40 minutes and reach the Georgian-Armenian border. After processing through customs, your exploration of Armenia begins. Meet your local Armenian guide and head to the first landmark, Akhtala Monastery. See its famous precious frescoes and admire the gorgeous landscape that surrounds the historic building.

After visiting the Akhtala Monastery, visit another old religious building said to be constructed between the 5th and 7th-centuries. Discover the Basilica Odzun and after marveling at its impressive architecture, continue on to the next stop. Along the way be stunned by mesmerizing landscapes that dramatically change from one kilometer to the next.

After a short drive, arrive at the monastic complex of Haghpat and Sanahin, which were historically renowned for their school of illuminators and calligraphers. In Haghpat, stop for lunch at a local restaurant and experience true Armenian hospitality. Taste traditional khorovats (barbecue) paired with homemade fruit vodka.
