Armenia

Who we are and how we started…

Hi everyone :).

We are the team of Kenats tour which is a small tour company in Armenia founded by us - a group of enthusiastic and motivated friends who are keen on travelling, discovering new spots and having unforgettable adventures and fun. We live in a country which is fabulous and attractive with its unique nature, old history and traditions, as well as extremely hospitable and friendly people and delicious cuisine (you can make sure of that when you visit).

In 2015 inspired with the warmness and motivation of local people living in the rural areas and the great desire to show people the hidden treasures of our country we founded Kenats Tour. The basis of our ideology is the Tree of Life (Kenats tsar in Armenian), which symbolizes family, warmness and prosperity.

Our mission and goal...

The mission of our company is to develop tourism in the rural areas of Armenia in a sustainable way involving basically local people, so that to motivate them and give them an opportunity to get extra money by providing services to the foreign visitors. On the other hand, we help the visitors to experience and learn more by spending less money (that is really important in today’s global financial crisis). In this way we try to bring people closer to nature and rural life. It is such a pleasure to wake up in the morning, open the window, breath in fresh air and see how the breakfast table has already been laid full of delicious ecologically clean and healthy food. Amazing experience…

Our goal is to help local people understand that protecting the environment, keeping their traditional way of life and providing visitors with ecologically clean products is essential for the long-term development, as “today's ecology is tomorrow’s economy”. So, our aim is also to educate people and to raise their awareness on ecological issues.

We give all our energy and time to reach our goal as we we are very optimistic and extremely motivated. We hope (we are even sure) that there are a lot of people who share our opinion.

What makes us different…

Truly concerned with the sustainable tourism management we offer various services to our customers, so that they will enjoy the warm and friendly local atmosphere and learn more through participation.

What we mean by PARTICIPATION?

We offer tours and various activities in Armenia that will give an opportunity to get acquainted not only with the main sights and historical monuments, but also to get in touch with the locals, stay and dine at villagers’ houses, participate in various activities, such as cooking master classes, homemade wine tastings, agricultural work, dancing and singing lessons etc.

What is our next step…

We strongly believe in the successfulness of our goals and we are looking into the future optimistically. We believe that the energy and time spent in fulfilling this goal will lead us to the long-term and beneficial development. And that development will bring benefit not only to the economy, but also the society and the environment.

We are planning to organize projects on the topic of “Sustainable tourism development” in different villages in Armenia to train and to help local people to generate new ideas and start their own local enterprises.

What we plan to do with the money…

In order to fulfill our goal in a successful way we need our own vehicle. At the moment we hire vans or minibuses but it makes our packages more expensive and as we want to offer alternative tours for people who are on a budget, we need our own one.

As our groups are generally small in number we are planning to spend the raised money on buying a van.
