Full description
Escape the busy city of Yerevan and travel into Southern Armenia towards the town of Areni, known for its spectacular history in wine making and bearing the name of one of the oldest grape varieties in the world. Your first destination will be to one of the region’s best vineyards to enjoy a tour of the winery and learn about the process of making wine. Discover the variety of grapes that are used here and taste some of the oldest wines of Armenia to get a real flavor of the region.

Next, enjoy stunning scenic views on the drive towards the next destination, the ‘Wings of Tatev’. The ‘Wings of Tatev’ is the longest cable car in the world, measuring 6 km, and was in the Guinness Book of Records in 2010.

Built on a high plateau in the Vorotan river gorge, the monastery is surrounded by breathtaking mountains and dense forests.

Onto Shaki Waterfall next, located in Syunik Province, to marvel at this stunning feat of nature that sits on the left side of the river Vorotan’s gorge.
