Yoga and Horse Riding Short Getaway Armenia

Lori Canyon Equestrian is calling all yoginis and equestrian enthusiasts to join this short getaway yoga retreat and horse riding tours through the hidden trails of northern Armenia. The tours are suitable for all levels of riding experience. If you are new to riding, you will get a half-an-hour horse riding lesson, then you can take beginner-friendly trail rides that will teach you to walk and trot at the beginning of the tour. If you're a professional rider, you can experience the exhilaration of trail rides in naturally beautiful environments. The field trials over the higher plateaus are ideal for a gallop, and the challenging rides along wooded gorges take you to enjoy breathtaking sceneries and discover historically important monuments hidden in the woods or countryside. On your way to the equestrian center explore Sanahin, the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Armenia

Included excursions

Riding session

On the way to the equestrian center, the group will explore the Sanahin monastery (optional). The ride starts from Akner hamlet, located on the higher plateau rising above Lori Canyon (Debed valley). The group will ride through the cultivated field trail towards the rim of the canyon. You will leave the horses near a freshwater spring and take a stroll along the verdant gorge.

The trail will lead you through the edge of the rocky cliff towards medieval Kayan fortress opening panoramic view over the gorge from one side and the canyon from the other side. After an hour yoga retreat, you will continue to hike down the forest stream and get to our pick up location. Following a picnic lunch near the cascading water, you will be transferred back to the hotel.

Another UNESCO Site, Haghpat monastery is located on the way to the hotel. So, at the end of the tour, the group will also have an opportunity to explore this medieval monastic complex as well.
