Who We Are
Route Armenia is a travel platform where you can find various tour programs, as well as design and shape your personal itinerary. These specific programs underwent years of personal explorations before being enriched and shared with you. More importantly, Route Armenia is not just about places but about people, too. People, with whom we built long-lasting friendship as a community of devotees that construct and develop Armenia to their extent. We aim to unite people from different backgrounds and encourage cultural exchange, with the hope that at the end of the day there will be more understanding and peaceful relations.
Situated on the crossroad of routes that link the East to the West, Armenia has always attracted travelers from all over the world. Thanks to its geographical position, throughout centuries Armenia developed into a unique culture, where you can encounter traditional society, which at the same time is very open to meet new people. As travelers, we now look for places that are not spoiled by hordes of people, places that are still authentic and take us out of our bubble into a world we can discover without any predesigned scenario. Armenia is in the stage of opening up to modern tourism. Nevertheless, the infrastructures develop rapidly and constantly improve their quality.
Route Armenia works towards the sustainable development of the tourism field in Armenia. We are involved in social entrepreneurship programs collaborating with local craftsmen, traditional and experimental rural cuisines, keeping track of ecological challenges of the country and contribute to the general tourism policy making process of Armenia. We give great importance to the educational projects in the regions, raising awareness among the young generation about the wide potential of many rural sites.
Today, modern life spins around big cities, and Armenia is not different. Yerevan is literally the center of social and cultural life of the country, and this leaves the rural communities of Armenia behind. Therefore, our tour programs include remote and hidden sites that are often neglected and doomed to disappear. We aim to raise awareness about these sites not only among the citizens of Armenia but on the international level as well. To achieve our goal, we want to involve locals in this process, enabling them to be the voice of the sites. A unique manifestation of centuries-old co-existence of the locals and attractions. In such way, we hope to develop sustainable tourism for local communities. This is our vision and our mission.
We truly appreciate the fact that Armenia is not a mass tourism destination. It is not staged and designed for the newcomers, it can be bold, rough and hence original.
