Description

Enjoy hiking in Kazbegi, Khevsureti, and Tusheti on an unforgettable outdoor adventure in eastern Georgia! Discover the stunning mountains, unique ancient villages, and the stunning culture of this rich and profound land.

On this 12-day adventure we will explore some of Georgia’s most awe-inspiring locations:

Kazbegi

Also known as Stepantsminda, this beautiful town is a favorite among trekkers. It is located in Mtskheta-Mtianeti at an altitude of 1750 m.a.s.l. Hiking in Kazbegi will give you a flavor of the real Georgia while allowing you to admire its awe-inspiring nature and landscapes.

Khevsureti

Khevsureti is famous for its traditions and for medieval ballads. It still preserves its forts and watchtowers. This remote spot surrounded by majestic mountains will give you a deep feeling of adventure.

Tusheti

The most remote of the three, Tusheti, in the Caucasus Mountains, is a natural sanctuary, one of the most ecologically virgin regions in Georgia. Additionally, it is a unique place to experience the untouched local culture and discover its traditions, crafts, and hospitality.

This 12-day hike will take you into the heart of Georgia and give you a full-flavored bite of its charm. I will be happy to lead the way and show you some of my favorite spots in this beautiful, magical place.

About the guide

Hiking and horseback riding guide.

I'm Georgian, native Tushetian. As a girl, I lived in the main wine region of Georgia – Kakheti, spent every summer in Tusheti – outstanding and authentic mountain region for its location, ethno-culture and nature. In 2014 I became certified sightseeing guide and started guiding all over Georgia. The more I travelled and learnt about Georgia’s rich cultural landscape, the more I grew to love my home country.

In 2017 I got certifications in trekking and in 2019 in horseback riding guiding. My main purpose is to use my experience in adventure tourism and offer unpopular, least crowded and still least popular activities such as agro tours, equestrian trekking and many others. My passion is to share the many undiscovered and unspoiled regions that make Georgia so special, adventurous and worth to discover.
