Explore Svaneti, a hidden gem in Georgia

Ride through the historic Chuberi Valley

Experience the tranquility of nature, avoiding crowded tourist areas.


Let's discover the untouched beauty of Svaneti on horseback!

Svaneti, nestled in the northwestern corner of Georgia, is a crown jewel of untouched natural beauty. Deep valleys carved by glaciers and rivers snake between the mountains. Here, you can truly breathe in the fresh mountain air and experience the raw beauty of the Caucasus Mountains.

Our adventure begins in the historic Chuberi Valley at the entrance to the Enguri River Valley in upper Svaneti. This valley is intricately connected to the Nakra valley via the Utviri pass, providing a captivating journey through the rugged terrain - a stark contrast to the more crowded tourist areas.

Reach new heights as we conquer the iconic Utviri Pass, a remarkable highlight, featuring an alpine lake nestled right on the pass. As we journey through ancient forests and lush valleys towards Nakra, we will be treated to magnificent views of snowy peaks that define the Svaneti landscape, including Ushba, Lahili, and more.

We start our expedition to discover the numerous small villages of upper Svaneti, which are spread across the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains. These villages boast ancient architectural wonders, such as small chapels embellished with frescoes dating back to the IX-XII centuries, and towers that have housed Machubis from different periods.

Hiking 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.

I highly recommend Tina as a guide for a horseriding trip. She always takes care of all of the team and let everyone enjoy the adventure independently of how advanced is in horse ride.


We had a great experience: well organized and combined trekking, gastro and wine activities - learned quite a lot in just 7 days. Tina was an exceptional guide.


Tinatin is nice and open minded person. Tour with her was safety and adapted to individual skills of each participant of the trip. Of course integration after all day cannot be forgotten :) This trip was one of the best experiences in my life.


We had an amazing week with Tinatin, her team, and a huge herd of horses to drive to Vashlovani NP. Detail-focused and very well-organized trip. It was a really unforgettable adventure.


Tina is a very well organised person, she is very professional and helpful and friendly. My trip with Tina was interesting and most of the impressions. I recommend Tina as an organizer and travel companion.
