Armenia

​One of the world's oldest civilisations, Armenia lies just south of the great Caucasus Mountain range bordering Georgia and Azerbaijan to the north and to the southeast and west, Iran​ and Turkey​.

One of the world's oldest civilisations, Armenia lies just south of the great Caucasus Mountain range bordering Georgia and Azerbaijan to the north and to the southeast and west, Iran and Turkey. Its territory once included Mount Ararat, which biblical tradition identifies as the mountain that Noah's ark rested on after the flood and it was the first country in the world to officially embrace Christianity as its religion (c. A.D. 301). The country is home to the biggest lake in the Caucasus, Lake Sevan, as well as some beautiful monasteries and churches, breathtaking scenery, a sublime culinary heritage and a thriving brandy producing industry. Armenia’s capital Yerevan is one of the world's oldest continuously inhabited cities where today Soviet-era architecture sits alongside old-fashioned tea houses and hip European-style wine bars.

Best Time to Travel
The best time to visit Armenia is May and between September and October when rainfall is minimal and days are long and warm. Spring temperatures are mild and the countryside is covered in wildflowers, making it a perfect time for hikers.
