Land of Volcanoes & History
: Armenia, a small country in the South Caucasus, has a long dramatic history and a rich cultural heritage. Despite its compact territory, it has much to offer its guests: fascinating mountain landscapes with snowy volcano peaks, beautiful gorges and cliffs, alpine meadows and subtropical forests, monasteries hidden in valleys, archaeological sites and picturesque villages.
Volcano Special Tours
: We organize tours to particularly active volcanoes and during ongoing eruptions for extended observation time from various viewpoints. These trips, exclusively for very small groups, are often announced only at short notice and require fast travel and flexibility. Each trip is accompanied by a volcanologist from our team. Examples include: Kilauea (Hawai'i), Colima (Mexico), Krakatau and many others.
Photos from Armenia
: Armenia is a very photogenic country with a large variety of landscapes showing some very spectacular geology, century-old monasteries and castles, and much more.
