About Your Trip

Whether hiking in the Caucasus Mountains or whipping up a feast from a farmer’s market, this nine-day journey yields an immersive Georgian experience. You'll begin in the Old Quarter of Tbilisi and visit Unesco World Heritage sites at nearby Mtskheta. See the ancient wine-making – and drinking – traditions of the region before exploring Lagodekhi National Park. The spectacular Truso Gorge, a hike up to Gergeti Church and a ramble beyond remote Juta village showcase the best of the High Caucasus. Return to earth with a visit to sulphur baths in Tbilisi, wrapped up with an invigorating massage. All of our trips are flightless in destination, with 100% of all carbon emissions offset. It's just part of how we see the world while being good to it.

        Accommodation

        Folk Boutique Hotel (or similar)

        In the heart of Old Tbilisi, this modern four-star property stands on the site of a celebrated 18th-century battle. The museum-like displays in the lobby of traditional 18th-century garments are echoed in the room decor and lend a quirky folk atmosphere.

        Chemodann Hotel (or similar)

        In a rugged valley at the foot of Mount Kazbegi, the Chemodann is a homely, chalet-style property near the Russian border. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer impressive views of the snow-capped Caucasus peaks and the famous ridgetop Gergeti Church.

        Royal Palace Hotel (or similar)

        The Royal Palace stands just where the Georgian plains give way to the lushly forested Caucasian foothills of Lagodekhi National Park. Resembling a country villa, the property has extensive gardens and a large pool offering a restful stay.
