Group Tour: Hin Areni wine factory, Tatev-Ropeway, Khndzoresk caves & bridge

    What to Expect
    The tour starts at 9am from the local operators office, then you'll board a climate-controlled vehicle for the trip to southern Armenia, with the first stop of the day at the historic village of Areni. Tour a wine factory to learn what makes Areni wines so distinctive, and see the distinctive architecture of the 14th-century St. Astvatsatsin Church.

    Continue to Tatev Monastery, once the wealthiest medieval monastery in Armenia and a strategic center of the kingdom. Discover the secret passageways that linked the monastery and outside world during tumultuous times, then ride the Wing of Tatev, an aerial tramway stretching 3.5 miles (5.7 km.) across the River Vorotan Gorge, linking Tatev Monastery with a hill by the village of Halidzor. 

    Take a break for lunch at a restaurant near Wings of Tatev, choosing between four set menus (own expense). The last stop of the day is Khndzoresk, a village that's famous for natural stone carpets and homes built directly into mountain caves, which also served as a stronghold for Syunik during the 18th-century national liberation movement.

    Following your time at Khndzoresk, begin the return trip to Yerevan, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.
