Georgia: Walking In The Svaneti Mountains

Overview:

Svaneti, Georgia's most mysterious mountain region is like a fairy tale come to life. The fabled region is renowned for its enchanting stone villages, punctuated by the famous defensive towers, and populated by a fiercely independent race, known as the Svans.

Still lying almost entirely off any tourist trail, this is a trip for the travel connoisseur who likes to see things real and wild. And of course, this tour is not only about Svaneti.

Georgia in general is one of our favourite countries: its excellent cuisine, delicious wine, stunning mountains, exquisite churches, hospitable locals and rich and varied history make it a perfect adventure travel location. Come and see for yourself.

Highlights:

  • Discover the churches, fortress, synagogue, museum and sulphur baths of the capital, Tbilisi
  • Hike within the Svaneti mountain region, home to the highest permanently inhabited village in Europe
  • Experience Georgian hospitality and cuisine whilst staying in mountain guesthouses
  • Walk between remote Svaneti villages, passing glaciers and examples of traditional ways of life
  • Visit the religious sites of Gelati monastery, Kutaisi and Jvari Monastery, Mtskheta
  • End the tour on the shores of the Black Sea in the city of Batumi

Tour Includes:

  • Full services of a Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
  • 9 breakfasts, 9 lunches, 9 dinners (typically in local restaurants where viable)
  • All transport (minibuses and 4WD vehicles if needed)
  • 9 nights' accommodation (3 in hotels, 6 in guesthouses)
  • All entrance fees, sightseeing, excursions and activities as per the itinerary
  • A carbon-offsetting contribution to Carbon Clear (if booking international flights through our office)

ALL OUR SMALL GROUP TOURS HAVE NO LOCAL PAYMENTS, HIDDEN EXTRAS OR COMPULSORY SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS.

Adventure Rating

Tours that fall into this category will often involve remote, unpredictable and long journeys in emerging destinations. They can be incredibly rewarding but are definitely best suited to experienced travellers.

Comfort Rating
Comfort Rating - 5

You can typically expect a mixture of accommodation with some nights being spent in comfortable and characterful places, and some in more basic places, homestays or camping, especially where choices are limited.

Fitness Rating
Fitness Rating - 7

These tours will typically involve a couple of days of easy/moderate trekking (3-5 hrs/day) or perhaps a more active approach to a cultural itinerary. For riding trips see the Riding Information section

Culture Rating
Culture Rating - 6

With this rating, you can typically expect a tour with a good balance between exploring cultural sights (such as museums and historical buildings) on some days and experiencing the wonders of the great outdoors on other days.
