Armenia is a marvelous country with a rich history, stunning nature, and most importantly hospitable people. Armenia is a destination you can visit at any season, but every season has its distinctive features. Now we are in the middle of winter-time and you must plan your trip well before your arrival. You should decide the things you want to do in Armenia during the winter and the outstanding winter activities you want to be involved in, because winter is the best time to visit Armenia for snow. Imagine mountains, hills and resorts covered with thick layer of the snow, which will ensure the best skiing experience, if you are the ski-lover, of course.
In any case, it will be useful to know the most important tips to spend your time and get the best out of winter in Armenia. Here we go.
Armenia doesn’t have such severe winters such as in Russia or Canada, but still, winters are quite cold and snowy in Armenia. However, if you are staying in Yerevan, you don’t need to worry. The average temperature in the capital city is from +2 to -10 °C. This means that a simple puffer jacket, warm boots, and a beanie will be enough. But if you’re an adventurer and want to explore all the sides of Armenia, especially the north, you will need as many layers of clothing as possible.
While being in Yerevan you won’t have a problem in communicating with people, since most of the population in Armenia has good knowledge of Russian, and the younger generation also speaks English. In the countryside, however, you might have some trouble communicating because of the language barrier. But Armenian people are very friendly, and tourists are warmly welcomed and honored. Even, if they don’t speak your language, you will find yourself easily interacting and communicating with gestures with the locals on the countryside.
