The Mystical Land of Svaneti

Svaneti is a haven for nature enthusiasts and culture enthusiasts alike, offering activities such as hiking beneath majestic peaks and learning about the age-old craft of Svanetian tower building.

The Wine Regions of Kakheti

Georgia is often referred as the "cradle of wine" because of its more than 8,000-year history of winemaking. Although Kakheti is the most well-known wine region, wine enthusiasts should not overlook a number of lesser-known wine districts..

Travel to the quaint villages of Telavi and Sighnaghi in Kakheti, where you can taste delectable wines produced from regional grape varietals and discover the special Qvevri winemaking process. Kakheti's undulating hills and lush valleys provide a tranquil backdrop for wine tasting, and the distant Caucasus Mountains provide stunning vistas.

The Majestic Peaks of Kazbegi

 Travel to the stunning region of Kazbegi, which is home to some of the Caucasus Mountains' highest peaks. You will be treated to expansive views of snow-capped mountains, verdant valleys, and pure rivers as we explore this alpine paradise.

The landmark Gergeti Trinity Church, situated on a hill with a breathtaking view of Stepantsminda hamlet, is undoubtedly one of the highlights of visiting the area.

We are rewarded with amazing views of Mount Kazbek and the surroundings as we trek to the chapel, making it an incredibly memorable experience.

The Ski Resort of Gudauri

Nestled in breathtaking alpine scenery, Gudauri Ski Resort provides top-notch skiing and snowboarding experiences for thrill-seekers. Gudauri is a haven for winter sports enthusiasts, with more than 70 km of ski routes suitable for skiers of all skill levels.

As you glide down the slopes and soak in the breathtaking views of the Caucasus Mountains, you will be reminded of Georgia's diverse landscapes and the endless possibilities for outdoor recreation throughout the year.

Mtskheta, is another must visit, an old town steeped in history that sits only a short drive from Tbilisi. Mtskheta, the erstwhile capital of the old Kingdom of Iberia, is home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including as the Jvari Monastery and Svetitskhoveli Cathedral.
