Summer in Armenia: Enjoy a beach holiday

The warm sunny rays, clean air and cool water – what could be better on a hot summer day? Armenia has no access to the sea, but the locals are not really upset about that because the country has a delightful azure Lake Sevan. The lake is so impressive that it is sometimes called "the sea of Armenia". At Sevan’s shore, you can have a wonderful time as all the necessary conditions are provided. The beach season begins in late June and lasts all summer. During this time, there are 11 beaches, 3 of which offer good service, while 8 are more suitable for a short rest. Here, visitors can prepare barbecues, play active games, and feel in harmony with nature. Those who love active recreation can take yachts and catamarans. If you decide to spend your holidays at Sevan, don’t forget sunscreen, as the ultraviolet radiation here is rather strong.

Summer in Armenia: Conquer the mountains

Armenia is sometimes called "the mountainous island" as the mountains here are everywhere – a real delight for hiking and climbing lovers! Summer season is, of course, the best time for the conquest of the mountain peaks. You can climb Mount Aragats – the highest peak of Armenia (4090 m) or Mount Azdahak and admire the amazing small lake located in the crater. But that’s not all: you can make trips to the side of Kaputjugh, Arai-ler, Tsaghkunyats, visit Khustup and Trasare.
