Svaneti is an incredible land where people start hiking in big mountains. Here you can see not only forests and green lawns, but also enjoy views of the rocky five-thousanders covered with glaciers and snow caps even in summer. A hike in Svaneti is a journey that usually begins with a love for big mountains. The whole trip we will look at the harsh walls of the Main Caucasian Range, glaciers and endless mountain meadows, inhale the aromas of flowers and freedom. Namely freedom, because, according to history, Svanetia has always remained free, "Free Svanetia". The Svan towers of the 7th-12th centuries remained in the villages - a UNESCO heritage.
We want as many people as possible to feel this beauty and atmosphere, as we ourselves enjoy this region. That is why we created the "Easy hike in Svaneti" route. We invite participants who have only been on short trips before, hikes in the Carpathians, participants who go to the mountains for the first time and even children from 10 years old! And although we have facilitated the route to the maximum, it retains the spirit of Svaneti, its severity. This is, without a doubt, an easy Georgia route . But it cannot be compared, for example, with a hike in Cyprus - Cyprus is definitely easier. It is important to understand this. If you are ready to get the maximum of emotions and impressions, we offer you our updated backpacking in Svaneti.
Attention! We have been running this route since mid-June. And even if the weather is severe and the Svan ridge is covered with snow, we have several fallback options. Thus, you can fully enjoy the landscapes of the Georgian Caucasus you have seen.
The start of our hike is in the city of Batumi. Batumi has an international airport and convenient flights. You can also fly to Tbilisi and Kutaisi, but in this case, allow time for moving to Batumi. We recommend arriving in Batumi the day before. If you need a place in the hostel, please inform the manager.
