Rafting in Pasanauri

Here you’ll also find an impressive number of extremely fast-flowing rivers fed from glaciers in the surrounding highlands. Often times the water races from as high as 5000 meters creating a powerful flow and the perfect opportunity for rafting.

Rafting or “Jomardi” as Georgians call it, has traditionally been one of the man’s earliest ways to transport goods and people relying solely on nature and its resources. The popularity of rafting as an extreme sport in Georgia started to grow in the early 1980s. Today rafting is one of the most sought out outdoor activities amongst locals and tourists alike.

Besides being a sport and an enjoyable pastime, rafting is also a unique and very fun way to discover Georgia’s stunning landscapes. No matter which part of Georgia you are visiting, you will be able to catch a flow of a cold mountain river that will take you through some of the most amazing remote parts of the country. Racing down a mountain river, you’ll get to discover hidden gems of the local flora and fauna and marvel at the centuries-old churches and fortresses you’ll encounter.

It doesn’t matter how experienced you are, rafting in Georgia is for everyone. Safety is very important that’s why rivers are divided into categories from simple to very dangerous.

Caving in David Gareji

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.

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.
