Invigorating horseback riding vacation in the northern mountains of Armenia!
The two-day horseback riding tour combines 3 popular horse trips into one spectacular package: a trail ride through picturesque agricultural lands, along forest streams, and a stroll through the rolling meadows by sharing the beauty and diversity of mountains, steeped in Armenian history and culture.
You will trot or canter along the foothills of the ridge where a scenic journey will continue with a climb high to the mountains promising panoramic views of the surrounding wooded slopes and valleys.
After mountain food gourmet delights with a couple of shots of homemade vodka you will have a great conversation with locals still working with their cattle.
Your 4-5 hour daily rides are full of expectations to hear the song of native birds, get delighted by spectacular scenery, and a variety of bird species as well as discover a combination of temperate and alpine flora.
You will dine under the stars next to a bonfire and fall asleep in a comfortable safari tent.
Early in the next morning explore daily mountain life and even be part of livestock works in a typical mountain hamlet.
Your descending path down the ridge will lead you to the verdant mountain slopes.
Finally, a 2km trail ride on the verge of pine forests will bring your 2-day trip to an end.
Note: This is not a beginner ride owing to steep slopes and may not be available on winter days when the ground gets frozen.
