South Coast Walks & Historical Sites
Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
In the west of the Caucasus, Georgia stretches from the shores of the Black Sea to its eastern borders with Azerbaijan and Armenia, reaching southward to Turkey and to the northern border with Russia. If you take the road less travelled in this unique, transcontinental country, you will experience a fusion of east and west that is unlike anywhere else in the world.
When embarking on a walking holiday in Georgia, you will get to traverse land that has been inhabited since the palaeolithic era. Simply walking in the footsteps of our ancestors is enough to instil a sense of wonderment in this incredible nation.
Georgia’s rich history has been shaped around winemaking, yet many visitors aren’t aware of the country’s vast wine region. Wine still plays an important role in the modern culture and identity of Georgia, so we will take the time to learn ancient production methods and sample the delectable end result.
The contrasting capital city of Tbilisi offers endless delights to travellers. As you saunter down cobbled streets you will be welcomed by the astonishing architecture; a mix of grand orthodox churches repurposed Soviet factories and traditional sulphur baths. Meanwhile, the rising bohemian art scene has also left its mark on this quirky city.
Tbilisi’s sleepy centre only starts to move around noon but is home to vibrant nightlife. Join us through the evening to soak in the warmth of the lit pathways and courtyards and experience a nighttime culture that feels incredibly continental.
Before a relaxing stop in the city, you’ll venture into Georgia’s remote countryside for a few days of gentle hiking in Stepantsminda. Stunning vistas await you from the nation’s third-highest peak. From our base, we will explore the UNESCO site of Mtskheta - one of Georgia’s oldest cities and former capital.
As you venture off the beaten track with us, you can feel confident that our experienced leaders will ensure a smooth-running trip. We also secure the best local guides to accompany you on excursions to provide authentic and first-hand information. Plus, travelling with a group of like-minded ramblers will give you the opportunity to share this journey with new friends, at a moderate pace.
