Bike trip

Roads in Armenia are often surrounded with great landscapes, mountains, forests. So taking a bike and riding it to an uncertain direction would be a perfect way to have adventure trips in Armenia. The nature is especially beautiful in summer and autumn when the trees are freshly green or have just changed the color of leaves. But be sure you are good at riding bikes because the roads are often in mountainous areas and it is quite dangerous to have control over your speed for a beginner.

Climbing Amberd fortress

Amberd is a 10-th century fortress which is now a famous place for tourists. The walls of the castle were built from roughly chopped basalt blocks. The walls were positioned in an incline, in order to defend from the attackers easily. However, in the 1070s it was invaded by  Seljuk Turks, who used it as their military base. Later, in 1197 it was liberated by the Armenian and Georgian forces, led by Zakare Zakarian, who renovated and reinforced the Fortress.
