4x4 Wheels drive
Georgia is perfectly designed for the ultimate adventure holiday.– Stride through some of the highest, most dramatic mountain scenery in Europe; hang glide off high cliffs; white-water raft down glacier-fed wild rivers; bike along barely used tracks; ride horses across plains untouched since the early days of the Silk Road. To all hikers, climbers and adventure seekers, welcome to Adventure country:
Getting away from it all is easy in Georgia. Whether you’re following ancient trails along lush river valleys, past ancient stone towers and castles or catching your breath on high altitude mountain paths, it is likely that you will be the only person for miles around. Many paths have been maintained over the centuries by locals dedicated to looking after their cattle and livestock, and with so many trails to choose from, your walk can be as challenging or as easy-going as you like. And what an experience. Marvel at the magnificent snowy peaks of the Caucasus mountains, full of hidden valleys and glaciers. Lower down you come across more varieties of animals, birds and flowers than in any other European country.Wherever you walk, you’ll be sure of a warm welcome. Whether you choose to sit and drink some local wine, sample the delicious locally produced food or even stay overnight in the villagers homes, you’ll never be treated better.
