How to choose the best destination for family holidays? That’s quite an important question. The first thing is to find the destination where each family member will find an interest. Today we’d like to invite you to make a trip to the South Caucasus – completely new and unique travel destination. Armenia and Georgia, two hospitable countries of that region, will please you with lush landscapes, authentic dishes and many cheap options for family rest and entertainment.
Family holiday in Armenia
Armenia is one of the safest countries for a family holiday. You can stroll here till late hours and feel completely comfortable and safe.
The other important factor that makes Armenia quite attractive destination is affordable prices for accommodation, food and activities.
In local resort towns, families can relax away from hustle and bustle in the lap of nature.
The resort town Dilijan is considered “the small Armenian paradise. The town is beautiful in any season. Coniferous forests and mild mountain climate are ideal to improve health, to treat and prevent cardiovascular diseases. The town is also an excellent choice for trekking lovers. Once in Dilijan, make sure to include Lake Parz in your must-visit list. The name of the lake is translated as “transparent or clean”. The trees and the blue sky are reflected in the waters of that crystal clear lake; the view is so inspiring!
The resort town of Jermuk is considered one of the most popular health centers in the CIS. The town is famous for its healing mineral waters and guests from foreign countries come here to improve their health. By its chemical composition and properties, Jermuk mineral water is compared with the springs of Karlovy Vary. Of course, the vacation in Jermuk will cost much cheaper than in the resort town of the Czech Republic. The nature of the resort is unique; the Jermuk waterfall is considered the most beautiful in Armenia. It falls from 70 meters forming a small lake. From the source of the waterfall the legendary mineral water “Jermuk” is produced.
Eco tour in Armenia
Eco tourism is actively developing all over the world, and Armenia also began to spend resources to preserve nature. Eco tour is a great idea to spend holidays with family, to get closer to nature, to teach children to love and appreciate nature.
One of the popular eco resorts in Armenia is the HyeLandz Eco Village Resort which is located in the village of Geghadir.The eco base grows organic fruits and vegetables, gets meat and dairy products on the spot, receives energy from the sun and simply enjoys the gifts of nature without destroying it.
For summer holidays in Armenia, the first place to go is Lake Sevan. Sevan is one of the highest freshwater lakes in the world. It is surrounded by Geghama Mountains the peaks of which are reflected in the blue waters of the lake. The view is fantastic!
In summer Sevan is a great place for a beach holiday. Here you can relax with family, sunbathe, ride a scooter, and eat the most delicious trout khorovats.
Family holidays in Georgia
Georgia has a great potential for tourism. The country is actively developing in all directions and at the same time carefully preserves its ancient heritage. For family holidays there are several destinations which we will tell you about:
Borjomi is a famous healing resort famous for its world known mineral springs. It is surrounded by mountain ranges and coniferous forests which contributes to clean and healing air in the town. The landscape reminds a fairy tale. Borjomi is all about dense forests, Caucasian mountains and mild climate.
The treasure of Borjomi is its mineral water. The healing properties of the mineral springs were known more than 2,000 years ago and here kings enjoyed their vacation. Just like in any other resort town, the life in Borjomi flows slowly without any bustle. Here you will forget the city vanity and get closer to nature.
The best direction for summer vacation is Adjara region. What can be better than the Black Sea coast, Caucasian Mountains and Georgian hospitality? The center of the region, Batumi town, is full of ultramodern skyscrapers, five-star hotels, clubs, and restaurants. Batumi is an ideal place for outdoor activities.
For a quiet family vacation, we recommend visiting Sarpi, a small village near the border with Turkey. Sarpi is famous for its clean seashore with rocks, mountains, and dense forests. The resort towns of Adjara are close to each other. This means, you can visit several towns.
For winter holidays in Georgia, there are several popular destinations among which we offer to visit Gudauri ski resort. Why Gudauri? First of all, the resort town is super modern with all the amenities, services and entertainment for adults and children.
Gudauri is a great place for a family holiday. The slopes of the mountain are divided into levels, there is also a separate ski lift for children, and a playground with slides. The hotels have all amenities for comfortable rest of the whole family.
In summer you can enjoy paragliding, hiking and other extreme activities or just relax in the lap of nature.
