Frozen conflict zones and unrecognised breakaway republics. This amazing trip takes you to Armenia, Nagorno-Karabakh and the place they call “Europe’s Hiroshima” before finishing in Tbilisi, Georgia. The extended group moves on to Stalin’s hometown of Gori, before entering the war-torn republic of Abkhazia, formerly the pearl in the Soviet summer calendar.
YPT has truly pioneered travel to the Caucasus and the “other NK”; the frozen conflict zone that is Nagorno-Karabakh. This region suffered a horrific war after the fall of the Soviet Union, and despite being de jure part of Azerbaijan, is in fact a de facto unrecognised independent nation state (1 of 4 in post-Soviet Europe).
Both trips can be combined with ourIran Revolutionary Tour, or done as standalone tours, with prices being amended depending on where you join the trip. If we wish to join or leave the trip at a different destination, please get in touch for a quote.
This tour will be split into two parts. Group A will cover Armenia and Group B, Georgia. You can choose to do both groups or only one. Get in touch about pricing for either individual group.
The group arriving in Armenia from the preceding Iran tour will arrive in the town of Agarak, a day before the rest of the group. The Iran group will stay this night in Agarak and depart for Goris early the next morning.
The non-Iran tour group (Group one) will arrive by their own means to Yerevan on the 2nd of May.
