GEORGIA TUSHETI Ride or hike over passes and summits reaching 3,250 meters high, offering amazing panoramas; pass through villages nestled in the mountains and beautiful wild valleys away from any civilisation. Discover the traditions and culture of the last semi-nomadic people of Georgia and overnight with them.
For audacious riders, take part in the “transhumance” – the seasonal migration -- when we drive all the horses back to the winter pasture.
GEORGIA SVANETI A ski tour adventure leads us up to Svanetian villages located at 2,000 meters elevation in the high Caucasus Mountains. We overnight in the secluded and beautiful villages of the last population that remains in the mountains during the winter, often isolated from the rest of Georgia. Ride the beautiful Caucasian slopes surrounded by the well known Tchkara and Ushba summits and their glacier. KABARDINO BALKARIA From Tbilisi (Georgia) to Vladikavkaz (Russia) we drive through the famous Darial Gorge
which for the ancients (roman period) was the end of the known world. You ride one week with the Adyghes on amazing Kabardin horses selected for their endurance capabilities.
We approach « off the beaten track » Mount Elbrus, the highest peak in the Caucasus, riding along ridges and summits and enjoying the immensity of the high plateaus (3100m).
We also ride into incredible canyons, passing by waterfalls and visiting hidden caves and
stay with horsemen and a herd of 150 Kabardin horses living free around our tents.
