Hot Destinations - Georgia

Created: 30 September 2015

Having only recently opened its doors to tourists, Georgia’s rich history- combined with its stunning scenery and friendly people - make it an undiscovered gem at the extremities of Eastern Europe. Travel in springtime, when slow-clad mountains and meadows teeming with wild flowers provide a delightful backdrop to an escorted visit, enjoying highlights such as Ushguli (the highest permanently inhabited village in Europe), the Cave ‘Towns’ of Uplistsikhe and Vardzia, the churches of Gergeti, Mtskheta and Gelati, and the fascinating capital, Tblisi.

Sample trip: Ffestiniog Travel offers Springtime in the Caucasus, a 12-day escorted tour that visits Ushguli, Tblisi, Uplistsikhe and Vardzia, and journeys on the narrow gauge electric train from Borjomi to Bakuriani. Departing 9 May 2017, the price is from £2,265 pp (two sharing) including flights (Gatwick), rail and coach travel as per the itinerary, 11 nights’ B&B, five lunches, six evening meals and the services of a tour leader from London and throughout, plus a local Georgian guide.
