Sacred & Religious Sites · Ruins · Geologic Formations
Syunik Province has a mountainous landscape and a wealth of historical attractions. With prehistoric archaeological sites, medieval fortresses, and remote monasteries to discover, vacations in Syunik Province offer a perspective on ancient Armenia, uncluttered by many of the trappings of modern tourism. The same goes for the landscape here, with the remote and vast province left wild and abundant. A number of wildlife sanctuaries protect populations of bears, leopards, and many more rare species, and the mountainous terrain consists of forested valleys and impressive snowy peaks, ripe for exploration.
