Join us for our Global Village Caucasus Adventure including a tour of two unrecognised independent states namely Nagorno-Karabakh, a frozen conflict zone nestled within South West Azerbaijan and also Abkhazia. These are one of four de facto unrecognised independent nations in post-Soviet Europe. We will also be travelling in Armenia and Georgia where we visit the beautiful city of Tbilisi.

The tour kicks off in the town off in Yerevan, Armenia before taking us along the quintessential Caucasus scenic route to the town of Goris in the valley of the River Goris. We travel on to Nagorno-Karabakh in our fleet of very authentic fleet of Lada automobiles to our base at the Jazz Club hotel in the quirky capital, Stepanakert. From here, we visit the town of Agdam or “The Hiroshima of the Caucuses”.

Ganzasar monastery is one of the oldest in the world with construction started in 1216 we meet the only monk that currently lives there. It’s a remarkable memory to take with you after a visit to the Caucasus with us. We visit Zorats Karer or the ‘Armenian Stonehenge’ – almost twice as old as that found in the UK, in addition to the ancient monastery of Khor Virap overlooking Mount Ararat.

The Tour will take us to Georgia, starting in Tbilisi where we chill out in traditional Georgian baths with local beer and dumplings and then to the town of Gori – the home of Joseph Stalin, a place where he is still highly respected. We visit the 3,000-year-old Ahaltsihe cave city and the Trinity monastery in the foothills of Mount Kazbek.

Experience the tense border crossing from Zugdidi to the breakaway republic of Abkhazia. Check-in to the former Pearl of Soviet tourism and capital city Sukhum, overlooking the Black Sea. We visit beautiful New Athos before a return to Georgia for the end of the tour. You can view the full itinerary for this trip below.

You can combine your Caucasus Tour with our Wonders of Iran Tour which concludes on April 30th. The group arriving in Armenia from the preceding Iran tour will arrive in the town of Agarak, a day before the rest of the group. The Iran group will stay this night in Agarak and depart for Goris early the next morning.

The non-Iran tour group will arrive by their own means to Yerevan on the 2nd of May.
