Svaneti

Overview

Explore one of the most unique and ancient cultures in the world with our 7-day Svaneti tour. Some travellers say that the tour is worth visiting for the road experience from Zugdidi to Mestia alone. Stunning nature scenery on the Inguri pass already makes this trip so different from other tours in Georgia. But this is true only before you arrive in Svaneti. Magnificent mixture of Caucasus mountainous nature and authentic architecture is something visitors will keep in their memories forever

Those towers used to play an important economic and defensive role in the history of Svaneti.
