Mestia, Georgia

$410.00

Overview

Georgian highlands are some of the most awe-inspiring sights this small country has to offer. Surrounded by the timeless Caucasus mountains, you’ll feel connected to nature like never before. Already on your way to the mountains when you lay your eyes on the Enguri water reservoir for the first time, you will think the earth and the sky have shifted – trapped by the dam, the vivid blue surface of the Enguri river looks like a second sky. At Dadiani Palace you’ll have a peek behind the curtain of time and learn how the members of Georgian high society lived in the 19th century.

Reaching Svaneti, your lungs will start to fill with pristine air of the mountains. When visiting Ushguli you’ll find yourself in the highest continuously inhabited settlement in Europe. The fusion of Ushguli’s extraordinary architecture with its exceptional location is recognized as a cultural world heritage by no other than UNESCO.

Tucked away safely between two mountains lies another jewel of mountainous Georgia – Mestia.  Here you’ll be met with mesmerizing views of Svaneti and the enclosing Great Caucasus. Follow the call of the mountains and experience the beauty of Georgian nature firsthand.
