A native of Dilijan, Vazgen is a certified hiker and guide with 14 years of experience. While Vazgen can guide you on pretty much any of Armenia's trails, he’s been hiking in and around Dilijan since he was a child, making him an expert of the area. He believes that Armenia has much to offer ecotourists, and even led the former Japanese Consul General on hikes around Armenia, at one point saving the Consul’s life from a venomous snake! Vazgen says that safety is a top priority for him, and can administer first aid if necessary. He plans before each and every hike, and always ensures that his guests are prepared with everything they need. "Always moving forward" is his mantra, and you can be sure he’ll have you moving and conquering trails across Armenia!
