Enlinking Caucasus (T-Y)

Tbilisi, Akhtala, Haghbat, Sanahin, Yerevan

Note: Due to the major flood event in late May 2024, roads towards Akhtala monastery are no longer accessible. While roads are being repaired, the tour itinerary will be adjusted such that we will visit Odzun monastery instead of Akhtala monastery (interim route will be Tbilisi, Haghbat, Sanahin, Odzun, Aparan, Yerevan).

Travel from Georgia to Armenia and sight see on the way.  This unique tour combines both tour and transport, connecting Tbilisi to Yerevan via a scenic route, making the most of your time.

Entering Armenia, delight in the ancient frescoes of the church at the Akhtala fortress-monastery. Visit two UNESCO Heritage listed sights along the Debed Canyon. Marvel at the Haghbat monastery, positioned among lush green fields. Enjoy a family-hosted traditional Armenian BBQ lunch. Then on to Sanahin with its serene and tranquil surrounds. Sample freshly baked pastry in Aparan. Arrive in Yerevan at Envoy Hostel.
