    1. Day 1

      Your plane lands in Kutaisi. Straight away we set off for the picturesque region of Upper Svaneti. The mountainous landscape can’t bore anyone. We stop for a lunch break in Zugdidi and make our first acquaintance with the local cuisine. We take a stroll around the Inguri Dam, which is the most powerful building in the Caucasus, with its 750 meters wide and 271.5 meters high and at the same time the highest arch dam of the earth.


    2. Day 2

      In the morning we enjoy a picturesque 5-km-long walk at stormy mountain river Dolra and along the dense forests – we visit the Shdugra Waterfall. From there you have a wonderful view on the beautiful mountain Laila and a wide panorama on the Dolra’s canyon.


    3. Day 3

      Since ancient times, Georgia is known for its gold deposits. After breakfast we will visit one of the traditional places of gold production in Georgia – Enguri River. You have a unique opportunity to compete with the locals in gold panning. Around noon we visit the former cultural and spiritual center of Svaneti – the community Latali. For lunch we taste local specialties and the famous apple vodka “Nathani”. We spend the evening in a relaxed atmosphere. You can hear the famous Georgian polyphonic songs sung by a local choir.

    4. Day 4

      On this day we take a trip to Mestia – the unofficial capital of Upper Svaneti. We visit the main square Seti, drink the healing water from a source, visit the Museum of Miсhail Hergiani, a legendary mountaineer, climb up by cable car to the mountain Zuruldi and enjoy the stunning panoramic views on the Great Caucasus.


    5. Day 5

      In the morning we go on the road to Ushguli – the highest village in Europe, which is 2,200 meters above sea level. We admire authenticity of the village – not by chance was the whole Upper Svaneti added to the UNESCO World Heritage list, visit a painter and Lamaria Church with its 11th century frescoes.


    6. Day 6

      On our way to Kutaisi we visit near Tsqaltubo the Prometheus Cave and stroll through the maze with huge underground halls. With a colorful lighting build stalactites and stalagmites a bizarre image. In the city of Kutaisi, we will visit a beautiful Kolchiser fountain and see the Bagrat Cathedral, built in 10th-11th century.


    7. Day 7

      In the morning before departure you still have some time for a stroll through the city center of Kutaisi.
