Georgia is like a mosaic. Each stone is different and enchanting – and when combined, they become a piece of art. And how to collect all of them? Of course on foot, with your eyes wide open and a keen interest. Here you can hike to Europe’s highest village in Svaneti on the edge of the Caucasus glacier, explore David Gareja cave monastery and enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine by the Black Sea.
