Pioneering Nagorno Karabakh Group Tour

Visit operator website

Run by: Regent Holidays

Reference number: ITN_ARM_006

From: £1690.00

Step inside thousand-year-old churches, explore the ghost city of Aghdam and be one of the first visitors to sip homemade mulberry vodka with locals in our pioneering tour of Nagorno-Karabakh.  Enjoying a beautiful setting amidst the Lesser Caucasus Mountains, Nagorno-Karabakh is an ethnic Armenian enclave inside Azerbaijan.  A self-declared republic since 1992, Regent Holidays was one of the first and still one of the only tour agencies to bring visitors to the region.  

Nagorno- Karabakh revealed 

It’s a region rich in history, and amidst the spectacular scenery of its mountain peaks are ancient monasteries where life has remained much the same since Armenia became the world’s first Christian state in the 4th century. This was once a kingdom that rivaled Rome, and at the ruins of Tigranakert you can explore the remains of what was once one of its biggest cities. It is now one of the world’s most exciting new archaeological digs. Our tour also takes in the small but spruced up capital of Stepanakert, including an introduction to its strong Soviet heritage and the chance to see the government buildings of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. Images courtesy of Mark Stratton
