Caving in Vardzia

Georgia is incredibly diverse. It’s rich with evergreen forests, snowy mountains, pristine lakes, alpine rivers and so much more. Out of all the monuments of nature, caves are definitely among the most stunning places to visit in Georgia. In fact, the World’s deepest cave Voronya can be found in Abkhazia, the most north-west region of the country.

Discover the most magnificent underworld cave systems and cities. Explore fascinating Prometheus cave located near Kutaisi in Imereti region. This natural wonder stretches out for full 8 kilometres 40 meters below the sea level and is completely covered with stalagmites of striking beauty. Tour its glittering halls and watch the sunlight reflects from the still surface of an underground lake creating dancing rainbows on the walls.

But why stop there? Go further to Sataplia cave where you will be able to walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs, quite literally. A 300 hundred years old dinosaur footprint is the biggest tourist attraction of Sataplia. The caves here go deeper than a kilometre underground and most of them haven’t been fully explored yet! This popular tourist destination is both, a perfect place for adventure seekers and a marvel for speleologists.

In addition to the natural caves, Georgia also boasts three big cave complexes that are at least partially man-made. Uplistsikhe, David Gareji and Vardzia are all Georgia’s hottest tourist spots.
Carved out in different centuries and scattered over the entire country these cave towns offer the perfect opportunity to get to know different parts of Georgia.

Rafting in Kutaisi

Sandwiched between the Great Caucasus Mountain Range and the Lesser Caucasus Mountains Georgia is rich with mountains of every shapes and size.
From the tops of many of these mountains spring small rivers gaining force and speed as they flow downwards and through picturesque parts of the Georgian landscape. Those rivers offer the perfect opportunity to explore Georgia on a raft.


Rafting or “Jomardi” as locals call it has been a useful way of transporting goods since the first settlements in the region. It was towards the end of the last century that rafting started to be regarded as an extreme sport. It has been gaining audience rapidly ever since and is one of the most popular extreme activities today.


Rafting offers a unique opportunity to those who would like to explore Georgia in an unusual way. Thrill-seekers can discover Georgia’s stunning nature from within as they follow a fast-paced mountain river through the beautiful valleys and canyons and encounter remote gems of local flora and fauna. The Kutaisi rafting route follows the Rioni river which starts high in the Racha mountains and is the most water-rich river in Georgia. Rioni offers different routes for every type of rafter. In various parts of Rioni, rafting complexity levels vary from 1 to 6. Beginners can have a go at rafting near Kutaisi, where the waters are calmest and the navigation difficulty stays medium throughout the year. The most complex (level 6) section of the Rioni is near the village of Utsera and is only recommended to experienced rafters.

The history of rafting or “Jomadi” as Georgians call it, starts from the ancient times when rivers were used to transport goods between settlements.

Today rafting is considered one of the most popular extreme activities in the country.

Rafting is a unique undertaking to discover Georgia’s stunning nature from within.
