Historic Armenia
Armenia's Villages, Fortresses, Monasteries, and Great Silk Road

Tour Description: Guided

Armenia is home to remarkable monuments of nature which belong to a history of human civilization covered by myths and legends: Biblical Mount Ararat, Mount Aragats (13,435 ft/4,095m) & the pearl of mountainss - Lake Sevan (6,227 ft/1,898m).

Armenia, with its diverse and spectacular mountainous landscapes, variations in geological substrate terrain, climate, soil and water resources, its rich fauna and flora as well as remarkable cultural heritage, provides excellent opportunities for mountain biking holidays in combination with cultural highlights.

Many outstanding historical events have taken place on this ancient land and probably the most important has been the adoption of Christianity in 301 AD thus making Armenia the first nation officially proclaiming Christianity as a state religion.

This tour starts in the capital city of Yerevan and goes along old routes and villages, highlighting area fortresses, monasteries, and the Great Silk Road. 

It is exclusively designed and professionally executed by Nueva Vista. The tour is focused on exploring the nature of the country and on experiencing its diversified and beautiful landscapes that outstandingly provide opportunities for adventurous biking.

All our tourist routes are designed carefully not to harm the environment. With mountain biking tours, we promote long-term partnership with the community-based providers of tourist services thus supporting the development of local economies and pioneering and promoting socially and environmentally responsible and sustainable tourism in Armenia.

Please kindly note that the routes and overall cycle-touring infrastructure in Armenia are not as well-developed as those one might experience in Western European countries. However, this is changing rapidly and will continue to change as more cycle tourists visit our country. So this program by the Nueva Vista team has been designed mainly for the “pioneers” and “more adventurous" travelers who are ready to discover and enjoy the adventurous side of Armenia together with its wild and mountainous nature. At present, there are no Armenian tour companies specializing exclusively in bicycle tours, and general tour companies such as Nueva Vista include bicycle tours as part of their overall offerings.
