Once a backpacker secret, Georgia has become a great European holiday option in the last decade. Its rich culture and astonishingly diverse landscapes make it an ideal destination for anyone loving history and nature on the grandest of scales. There’s a lot for the traveller to carry back as memories. From its green valleys with rolling vineyards to its old churches and watchtowers perched on peaks, Georgia never disappoints. In recent years Tbilisi has emerged as one of the coolest cities in Europe, with a edgy club scene, world-class restaurants and a selection of wine bars – an easy one to be one of the hippest spots in Europe. In fact, Georgia claims to be the birthplace of wine. That should be enough reason for you to join this trip.
What to expect
Tbilisi is sure to leave you awestruck with its charming luxury boutique stays, historical stops and great weather. But it’s the wine making pitstops that we make, which will get the tour going. We’ve added Kakheti, which is the most fertile region of Georgia and the birthplace of the best wine. Acrres of vineyards, ancient temples and monasteries, sleepy towns with tiled roofs are the flavour of the trip. Stunning rivers, wildlife sanctuaries, hikes and standing at the edge of an extinct volcano completes the trip.
Creating a trip ‘just’ right for you
This trip is all about discovering a place with a small group that is likely to have the same interests. We handpick stays and experiences in a manner that you get to see something which is usually not what you’d opt for, while keeping in mind that most of the trip is in sync with your kind of travel. Afterall, exploring a destination is all about something new too.
