Land of the Golden Fleece
Why Book this trip
As one of our most popular trips, this holiday gives a fascinating insight into two of the former states of the USSR. Located along part of the Silk Road in the Caucasus region, Armenia and Georgia straddle Europe and Asia but feel very eastern European, a testament to their Soviet past. While there are many monasteries, each has been built in the most beautiful location, and will leave you marvelling at the beauty of this alpine mountain region. Travellers able to spend longer in the region are recommended to extend their adventure into Azerbaijan (GFA).
