Often the Caucasus countries aren’t the most obvious choice when planning a holiday from the UK – but that’s precisely the beauty in selecting them. Armenia – and its neighbour Georgia – remain untainted by mass western tourism, allowing those discerning travellers in the know to enjoy authentic cultural experiences without the crowds, such as dining on home cooked meals with friendly local families or searching for ancient stone churches hidden in verdant gorges.

Armenia is home to a cosmopolitan capital city, Yerevan, as well as windswept mountains and timeless rural villages, occupied by shepherds for generations. Here travellers can discover one of the world’s best-preserved Silk Road caravanserais, crumbling mountain-top monasteries and exceptional local cuisine, from barbecued meat to locally-produced brandy.

Alongside its Silk Road trading history and ancient religious relics, Soviet-era monuments in Yerevan provide a tangible link to the different, and fascinating, periods of history through which this friendly nation has navigated, as its larger cities now begin to adopt a more Mediterranean, café-culture feel.

Believed to be the home of the Garden of Eden, the fertile Caucasus offer a heavenly temptation for travellers wanting to combine off-the-beaten-track explorations with gastronomic experiences. Here every meal, more often than not hearty and homemade using produce grown in the garden, is served in generous portions and washed down with great glasses of sweet red wine.

Carl's Tips
1
Spend a night at the Avan Dzoraget Hotel in a canyon on the Dzoraget River, which mimics a medieval castle and oozes history.
2
At the foot of Mount Ararat, Khor Virap Monastery is one of Armenia's most famous and oldest spiritual sights.
3
In Yerevan, stop in at Tavern Yerevan for a local welcome and authentic dishes served up to the strains of local folk music.
