Sitting at the point where Europe meets Asia, Armenia offers vibrant culture with reminders of its rich history never too far away.
This landlocked nation boasts an abundance of medieval monasteries alongside unspoilt valleys, mountains and forests. Lake Sevan is nestled so high in the Caucasus mountains that its crystal waters almost appear to be touching the clouds.
The capital Yerevan has a bustling atmosphere, with a giant limestone stairway, the Cascade, serving as a destination for open-air concerts and a meeting point for locals and tourists alike. Yerevan also provides impressive views of Armenia's Mount Ararat, but for an even closer look, be sure to head to the observation point at Victory Park.
In the country's north, Yenokavan’s Yell Extreme Park is home to five different zip lines stretching daringly across canyons and gorges. Nearby, lush forests and majestic waterfalls surround the hidden beauty of Lastiver Caves.
