Overview

Our company offers you 3 days tour breathtakingly wild and mysterious, Svaneti is an ancient landlocked in the Caucasus. So remote that it was never tamed by any ruler. Uniquely picturesque villages and snow-covered, 4000m-plus peaks. Rising above flower-strewn alpine meadows provide a superb backdrop to the many walking trails. Svaneti’s emblem is the Koski – defensive stone tower. Around 175 koshkebi, from the 9th and 13th centuries, still survive here today.
