“Every Georgian dish is a poem.”
The Caucasus are some of the last explored wilderness regions of Europe. Rich with history, they offer a dramatic scenery of lakes, mountains, and forests.
The landscape is dotted with stone watchtowers, ancient monasteries and wooden churches which can be traced back to the earliest days of Christianity.
The people are some of the friendliest in the world and a warm welcome will guarantee and rewarding and memorable trip.
We hope you can join us on the next leg of our Silk Road adventure.

We will be staying mainly in traditional heritage properties. We are including eight evening meals and six lunches. Breakfast is included each day.
All hotels have been selected because they will give us comfort, authenticity a good location and also - importantly - because they have beautifully relaxing spaces for us to unwind at the end of the day.
These are all non-western accommodations and therefore the rooms will differ slightly from each other. Therefore the facilities in each room may not be entirely identical.
