Overview

Our company offers you 4 days hiking tour in Svaneti. 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.
