An alpine haven resting in a plush evergreen national park, Dilijan has made a name for itself as the "Armenian Switzerland." A much-loved spa town rich in culture and history, uncover the majestic 10th century monasteries, undisturbed scenic vistas, and hiking trails through undulating forest.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Fri): enjoy the sand and surf at Hayravank Monastery, look for gifts at Wine Store Tsaghkadzor, make a trip to Monastery Sevanavank, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Haghartsin Monastery, and finally don't miss a visit to Monument to the Heroes of the Film Mimino. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Goshavank Monastery, explore the activities along Lake Parz, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kecharis Monastery, and finally make a trip to Saint Harutyun Church.

Start your trip to Dilijan by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Vienna, Austria to Dilijan is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Vienna to Dilijan due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Vienna in June, plan for somewhat warmer days in Dilijan, with highs around 36°C, while nights are about the same with lows around 18°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to drive to Areni.
