Visit Armenia

The Republic of Armenia can be found in the Eurasian zone just above the Middle East, bordered by Turkey and Iran. It is a nation with a rich cultural history, with documented civilizations calling the area home since 860 BC.

Because of its age, Armenia is often a nation of pilgrimage, with ancient religious sites like the medieval monasteries of Haghpat and Sanahin or the churches and cathedral of Echmiadzin listed as World Heritage Sites. Armenia is also home to Lake Sevan, which is the largest mountain lake in the world, offering visitors a unique way to enjoy water sports on a sunny afternoon. Skiing is available in the mountains during the winter, while mountain trails are perfect for a picnic lunch during the spring and summer.

One of the more unique opportunities to explore Armenia has just recently developed: paragliding. Because of the heights of the highlands in the country, near the Caucasus Mountains, there are numerous micro-climates that can be found and used for paragliding. Numerous operators are available to provide independent and tandem flights. Official clubs have supported this industry since 1996, but it was not until 2008 when it would really “take off.”

The paragliding season in Armenia lasts from May until November most years, with flights lasting up to 20 minutes.

Armenia is a land of history and wonder. It has always had a spiritual side, but today we can also see its adventurous side. There may be no better place in the world today to see the ancient and modern worlds collide.
