Adventure In The Caucasus Mountains

8 Days

This tour has the most spectacular mountain biking in Georgia. We ride in some of the more isolated and inaccessible mountain regions of the country that will bring you up close with the culture, history and diversity of Georgia. Mountains, lakes, remote villages, fishing, hiking, single track, jeep track, spectacular views, local cuisine and wine - this will be the trip of a life time.

We drive across one of the high mountain road passes of the Caucasus Mountains from Tbisili to Tusheti, with its fascinating medieval villages, descend the Abano pass by bike to picturesque villages that are nestled deep in the valleys with their unusual stone architecture. The friendly Tushetis, of which there are a few thousand of them, have been here for at least 1,600 years. They have their own dialect and live on the slopes of the valleys, surrounded by the 5,000 meter peaks of the Caucasus mountains. The winters are extremely harsh and so they spend them in the lowlands, migrating up in the summer with their cattle, horses and sheep.

We cross the spectacular Atsunta Pass at 3430m, descending 1700m into the fortified village of Shatili. We visit the Abudeauri lakes as well a wine tasting region.

You need to be a good mountain biker to enjoy this tour.
