DAY 1.Yerevan–Sevan Lake-Yerevan

 

Arrival to Zvartnots International Airport,

Transfer to Gegharkunik Region,

 Check-in support at a hotel near Sevan Lake.

After check-in at the hotel we will start our fishing trip to Sevan Lake. Despite being landlocked, Armenia can still boast of its “blue pearl”, the majestic Lake Sevan. This unique natural reservoir is one of the biggest and highest freshwater lakes in the world. The lake spreads its waters along the base of the Geghama mountain range bordered by the Sevan, Vardenis, and Areguni mountain chains. A total of 28 rivers flow into Lake Sevan and it is the source of the Hrazdan River. In 1978 this natural heritage became a National Park to protect the fresh water reserves, fish stock, its bird assemblages and historical monuments, as well as to regulate tourism and recreational activities.

Together with SacVoyage Travel you will have the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent view of the Geghama chain while fishing in the blue water of Lake Sevan. Savan is famous for its noble spices of trout (Arm. ‘Ishkhan,’ translated into English as ‘prince’), which makes it a popular destination for those who love fishing.

Being accompanied by our assistant, you will be introduced the instructions and specialties concerning the fishing area. To make your trip complete we will make a fish barbeque which you will enjoy right on the shore of the lake. After having food in an open air we will continue our way to hotel.

Overnight in Sevan.

 

 DAY 2.Yerevan – Arpi Lake- Yerevan

 

After breakfast at hotel we will drive to Lake Arpi, situated in Shirak Region (an altitude of 2023 m.). The lake area is 22 square kilometres. The area was increased artificially in the 1950s from the natural state of 4.5 square kilometres, and the lake has become the second most important water body of Armenia, next to Lake Sevan. It is used for irrigation and hydropower production. The lake is fed by meldwater and four streams, and it is the source of the Akhurian River.

The lake has rich flora and fauna. It is a Ramsar Convention protected site, and a national park was established around the lake in 2009. More than 100 species of birds have been observed around Lake Arpi.

The same fishing assistance by our instructor you will find during the tour to Lake Arpi, which will be accompanied by a fish barbeque at the shore of the lake. After we will drive to hotel in Gymuri town.

Overnight in Gyumri.

 

 DAY 3.Yerevan-Echmiadzin-Yerevan 

 

After breakfast at hotel we will drive to the spiritual and religious center of all Armenians-Echmiadzin town. Before fishing there is a tour to Echmiadzin Mother Cathedral (5th century AD), Churches of Holy Virgin Gayaneh and Hripsimeh, both of them dating back to the 7th century AD. The whole town is  included in UNESCO World Heritage list. The residence of Catholicos (head of the Armenian Church) of all the Armenians in the world is also situated here. Mother Cathedral has a rich museum, where you will find the oldest spear with which a roman soldier wounded Jesus Christ. In case you would like to see not only the spear but also other valuable items of old Armenian Christian ceremonials, you can have a stop here and visit the museum.

Echmiadzin town has many lakes where you can catch karas and trout. The reason why we connect fishing with a holy sight in Armenia is the following: in Christianity, the fish is a symbol of abundance and faith as observed in the Biblical story of fishes.

Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men." (Mark 1: 17)

Our first idea here could be that Jesus is asking us to go and 'catch' people for God. But think about fishing: you bring a fish up to the surface from out of the depths. To go fishing is to bring something living and useful to the surface, into view, to help someone see their value and that what they have deep within them is wonderful and good. This is something inside them inside us all - that can often stay unknown. This is now a truth that unites all religions, not divides them. After fishing in the fresh waters of one of the lakes in Echmiadzin, we will drive to hotel in Yerevan.

Overnight in Yerevan.
