Europe’s Fastest-Growing Destinations: Armenia
These are the top 10 fastest-growing travel destinations in Europe
Armenia — 18.65% Year-on-Year Growth
Among the destinations Chang expects to surge in 2019 is Armenia. In fact, Cox & Kings is slated to debut a new itinerary pairing the country with Georgia in the next few weeks.
Among the outfitters already serving the destination are Abercrombie & Kent, Ker & Downey, and TCS World Travel, who collectively tout historical riches such as Mt. Ararat (where Noah’s Ark is said to have made landfall), the charming capital of Yerevan, and—yes—its most famous cultural descendants, the Kardashians.
On trips with Abercrombie & Kent, guests also get in deep with local traditions: visiting brandy distilleries, meeting carpet makers, hearing spiritual chants in ancient monasteries, and learning to make traditional lavash (a type of local flatbread) with an Armenian family.
Don’t forget to taste Armenian wine which keeps the history of thousand years local wine making traditions.
