Our mission is simple: to revolutionize trail tourism the length of Armenia.

Trails have the power to connect communities and landscapes, providing broad and lasting benefits.

That’s why we’re building a border-to-border hiking trail the length of Armenia, bringing new opportunities to rural communities and entrepreneurs across the country.

When complete, this 827km national trail will connect to neighbouring branches of the Transcaucasian Trail, one of the most talked-about new long-distance trails in the world.

Our work goes beyond the office and into the great outdoors.

We’ve surveyed thousands of kilometers of trails in search of the perfect route, mapping remote regions in unprecedented detail.

In doing so, we’ve uncovered a web of historic footpaths, weaving natural and cultural heritage sites into an unforgettable journey that brings the story of Armenia to life.

Completed sections of the trail are attracting international media attention – and with it a new market of forward-thinking, environmentally conscious visitor.
 

It’ll take a movement, not a project, to realise this vision.

We bring cutting-edge expertise to Armenia to inspire a new generation of hikers and trail stewards.

Graduates from our programmes and those of our partners now hold leading roles in trail development organisations across the country.

Combining international best practices with home-grown enthusiasm, this pioneering community of nature lovers is putting Armenia back on the map for hikers the world over.

We will realise this dream – one footstep at a time.

It’s a monumental task – but we’re blazing our way towards a better Armenia for all.

Here’s just some of what’s been achieved so far:

827kmof national border-to-border route surveyed, mapped & trail-tested
1,323kmof trails in the extended network of excursions & alternative routes
38%of the national border-to-border trail marked and signposted
3new 1:25,000-scale topographic hiking maps of Armenia published
76communities connected to a growing stream of opportunities
11specially protected areas traversed & conservation efforts strengthened
50cultural heritage sites made more accessible to trail users

This is a nation-sized jigsaw puzzle. Can you help us piece it together?

We’re a small non-profit organisation relying on private donors to make our work possible.
