TRAVEL TO ARMENIA

ArmEcoTour travel agency draws travelers’ attention to a new destination called ARMENIA! We invite inquisitive, lively people to Travel to Armenia, to one of the most exciting countries in this world. Various tours have been created to offer a more independent experience than you might expect from travelling in a group for those who love solo-travelling, but also for those who want to explore in their own time, using the local bus or trying a new tavern every night. As with most things, the more you know about Armenia, the more interesting it becomes for you each time you explore it. Here in our staff you’ll find people, who really understand their subject and your interest, could make a passion interest into a lifelong passion- or at least, open your eyes to see the beauties of our country and its history in a new light. So Travel to Armenia is by its nature adventurous, and by taking a holiday with a party of other people, that adventure can seem compromised. To some people travelling in any kind of a group is like being a captive of their holiday and other peoples’ decisions. We want to escape this. Thus, ArmEco Holiday tours were invented so that you could have the best of both worlds – an expert tour-operator on hand to inspire, inform and advise you and the rest of your holiday arrangements made on your behalf – but the freedom and independence to spend time as you wish to spend it. This might mean opting in and out of site visits, or taking advantage of local buses and trains to explore on your own sometimes. It might mean staying behind at a site and sketching and finding your own way back. As with any of ArmEco tours, the Holiday in Armenia is structured as a travelling narrative, building day by day, rather than a series of isolated site visits. During your Travel to Armenia, our customers will be well-informed of the full story of our country. Our guides can tell you about the latest research, new finds and most up-to-date theories – and how they relate to what you are looking at. People travel with ArmEcotour travel company with their families and teenage children who join them during the school holidays and we are delighted that a love of our ancient country can span the age gap in this way. ArmEcoTour is attracting a new audience, and we think that people who were unsure what Travel to Armenia was all about, are now taking the plunge, and joining our holidays. We are always there to organize the on-site (and in-bar) discussions that are some of the best bits of the tour, and everyone’s opinions throw up new ideas. We hope you will join us this year and open the doors to a lifelong interest which you can follow almost anywhere in the world – even in your own back garden.

TOURISM IN ARMENIA

Armenia with its antique culture, rich history, with its customs and traditions has its own unique place in the tourist market. So, the potential development possibility of tourism in Armenia is pretty great.

Your travel to Armenia somehow means travelling through time, because Armenia has got centuries of history where at each step various monuments bring prominent witnesses of that history to travelers. Here in the territory of historical Armenia many ancient settlements, Cyclopean fortresses, and tombs of rich people were excavated ( Lchashen, Vanadzor, etc. ).

Our rich history is preserved in architectural monuments, ancient castles and defensive fortresses, various household objects, and in written manuscripts. Our tours are conceived, planned and led by articulate tour experts: guides, historians, writers who will help us give guests a unique glimpse into the past of Armenia. Weaving a narrative day by day, we view archaeological sites, not so glorious, but empty ‘Wonders of the World’, but as real towns, cities and homes; places where ordinary people lived, loved and died.

ArmEcoTour travel agency, working out further plans to develop tourism in Armenia in its way, tries to achieve its own place in the dense diversity of tourist market. We gradually acquire access to wide network of colleagues in different tour companies, universities, museums throughout Armenia and beyond its borders, and we make considerable use of it. Our guests come from all walks of life: some are archaeologists, some have a lifetime passion for history, others have no prior knowledge at all.

The art of our prehistoric ancestors survives, often in remote and beautiful locations. There exists a poignant human connection between a modern visitor and our most distant ancestors during a full travel throughout Armenia.

Actually together with the dynamic development of tourism in Armenia , we should never forget about the Power of Responsible Travel. What we do to help protecting the past? At ArmEcoTour we work hard to ensure our actions benefit – rather than harm – the ancient sites and beautiful places we are privileged to visit.

We tend to differentiate several types of travel among which business travel, family travel, solo travel, hiking, biking, winter travel, etc. Practically people can find whatever they want to do during their holiday in Armenia all year round.

Here we offer something new for our guests, working with local people. That is to say, as a company we permanently try to use small, local and authentic travel partners, avoiding international chains and trying to find locally owned places to stay and local food to eat. Partly this is a matter of principle: partly we just think it makes a more enjoyable eco holiday! We also keen to prove to people living near archaeological sites that preserving these places we can provide an income through our interest in their heritage and enlarge the number of foreigners, boosting the development of tourism in Armenia.
