Five day tour to Svaneti including Mestia, Ushguli and Becho gorge

Svaneti is one of the most beautiful mountainous regions not only in Georgia, but arguably in the whole of Eastern Europe. While traveling in Svaneti guests can enjoy breathtaking views & landscapes of the Caucasus and experience the mountainous culture of the region by visiting local museums and towers which date back to the 11th and 12th centuries. The five day (4 nights) tour to Svaneti is an adventure & sightseeing tour accompanied with the ultimate cultural immersion experience. During the trip, guests will have the opportunity to hike to the Shtugra waterfall in Becho valley & also to the Chalaadi Glacier near Mestia. Guests will also have opportunity to take the cable car up to Hatsvali – tall mountain with a stunning panoramic view of the Ushba peak. The most interesting part of the tour is arguably the journey to the early medieval village Ushguli - which is home to numerous defensive towers from the early middle ages.
