Taste the flavor of the best Kakhetian wines, feel the spirit of the ancient Uplistsikhe cave town, drink refreshing Georgian mineral water in Borjomi and enjoy true freedom in the highlands of Georgia.
On day one, will travel from Tbilisi to Kakheti via the Gombori range. The first destination of the tour is the ancient Ujarma fortress. The next destination is Ikalto, where there is a monastery founded in the VI century. This location is very close to Telavi. The next destination is the Gremi complex which was the capital of Kakheti in the XV-XVII centuries. Later, upon your request, we can have dinner in a restaurant before or after wine tasting in Kvareli. The last destination will be the cozy late-medieval town of Signagi. The city was founded in the XVII century as the center of the south Kakheti region.
On the second day, we will drive to Uplistsikhe, Gori and Borjomi, which cover the most notable places. You will see an important site: the ancient town of Uplistsikhe, carved in rock (6th century BC). Later you will visit the birthplace of Stalin – Gori, and finally, we will drive to Borjomi.
On the third day we will visit Stepantsminda and Gergeti Holy Trinity church, following an ancient trade road, better known as the Georgian military road. We will see amazing sights such as the Jinvali water reservoir, Ananuri Complex, Gudauri viewpoint, etc. Later we will cross the great Caucasus range at Jvari pass and spend an unforgettable day surrounded by high mountains and narrow gorges. The biggest plus of this tour is seeing the Kazbegi mountain.
The former Khevi province is easiest to access from the Tbilisi highland region. So, our ‘Drink Wine and Raise Your Elevation’ tour will end in Tbilisi.
