Overview

Welcome to the enchanting Vashlovani Day Tour, a captivating journey through South Kakheti, a historical region known as Kiziki. This tour promises an unforgettable experience as we explore the natural beauty and rich history of this remarkable area. Our adventure begins in Dedoplistskaro, the gateway to Vashlovani National Park.

Eagle Canyon: A Scenic Marvel

Our first stop takes us to Eagle Canyon, a place of breathtaking vistas overlooking the Alazani Valley. Depending on the season, the canyon offers different delights, from vibrant wildflowers in spring to serene beauty throughout the year. Birdwatchers will be especially delighted by the diverse avian life in the area.

Khornabuji Fortress: A Glimpse into the Past

Next on our itinerary is the historic Khornabuji Fortress, which dates back to the 5th century. Perched on a steep rock, this fortress holds a strategically significant past and never fails to impress with its formidable presence, regardless of the weather.

Pantishara Valley and Datvis Khevi: A Wildlife Sanctuary

Pantishara Valley and Datvis Khevi are sanctuaries of biodiversity. Here, you’ll encounter relict plants and trees, including pistachio trees and evergreen juniper. It’s a haven for nature enthusiasts and a unique opportunity to connect with Georgia’s natural heritage.

Bodbe Monastery: A Tale of Faith and Reverence

Our journey continues to the sacred Bodbe Monastery, a place of deep spiritual significance. It’s here that Saint Nino of Kabadokia, a revered Georgian saint, passed away. The main church, dating back to the XI century, showcases captivating medieval wall paintings, providing a glimpse into Georgia’s rich religious history.

Sighnaghi: Exploring the Enchanting City of Love

Our last destination is the charming town of Sighnaghi. With its narrow, winding streets, Sighnaghi offers a romantic atmosphere perfect for leisurely walks. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the local museum, which houses a collection of paintings by the renowned Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani.

For a truly indulgent experience, we recommend lunch at Okro’s Winery, where you can savor the finest Kakhetian organic wines and delectable regional cuisine. The terrace at Okro’s Winery provides a fantastic view to complement your meal.

We also recommend visiting The local museum in Sighnaghi. It is a treasure trove of Georgian art and culture. Explore the works of the celebrated Georgian painter Niko Pirosmani, gaining insight into the country’s artistic heritage.

Conclusion: Return to Tbilisi

As our Vashlovani Day Tour comes to an end, we bid farewell to the captivating town of Sighnaghi and make our way back to Tbilisi, carrying with us the memories of an unforgettable adventure in South Kakheti.
