Our weeklong trips will be held in the scenic mountain-region of Kazbegi (Stepantsminda), as well as the arid and steppe-like regions of southern Georgia, and western subtropical regions along the Black Sea coast.
Kazbegi features the beautiful peak of Mkinvartsveri (Kazbegi) where the landscape varies from high glacial mountain peaks to deep gorges and canyons cut by glacial waters, banked with sub-alpine vegetation.
As we drive through the high mountain peaks, communities of alpine Snowdrops are sprinkled in the meadows while Red-billed and Alpine Choughs call overhead. Local people herd their sheep and cattle along the mountain road: a spring of natural mineral water greets travelers alongside bright red sulfur flats that border a section of the alpine pass.
