The Armenian national stage of the Transcaucasian Trail will take you over 827km through the most spectacular terrain this small nation in the South Caucasus has to offer. This border-to-border route traverses 7 provinces and represents the very best of the unique cultural and natural landscapes of Armenia, constituting a true world-class hiking experience.
At this early stage of development, parts of the route are still off-trail and will require independent route-finding. The weather and terrain conditions in the Caucasus can be harsh. While trail infrastructure is being actively improved, visitors accustomed to the well-groomed trails of North America and Europe may find a slightly different understanding of what constitutes a “trail.” For more information on the development status, please visit the official Transcaucasian Trail website at https://transcaucasiantrail.org/
Hikers must be prepared to be self-sufficient for extended sections and aware that emergency medical care and search and rescue may often be unavailable. However, those who come prepared for self-sufficiency, diverse terrain, and off-trail travel will be rewarded with an incredible experience traversing one of the most culturally, linguistically, and geographically diverse parts of the world.
