Ecotourism in Georgia: unique nature, eco-routes, support of local business

About ecotourism

Georgia is a country of ancient civilizations, mineral waters, majestic mountains and pristine lakes. The sparsely populated mountain part has preserved the ancient flavour and natural purity, and people are hospitable. The main point is to see the beauty with your own eyes. All photographers, biologists, mountaineers, historians come to Georgia.

Through ecotourism, you discover unknown places even to the locals. Here you instantly feel yourself in a fairy-tale country — mountains and rivers, a place where East meets West, a European worldview. Travellers who support ecotourism must support local farmers, producers of eco-products. Therefore, there are villages and local shops throughout tourist eco-routes.


About directions

All routes designed to see the maximum in a short time. Svaneti is the most popular place, full of diverse views. Tusheti and Khevsureti are the most remote areas with untouched nature and medieval atmosphere. Canyons and waterfalls are an easy route near Kutaisi. This picturesque, diverse and easily accessible area of mountainous Georgia is interesting for tourists, climbers and lovers of antiquities. Routes are available for beginners in the mountain climbing.

All routes designed to see the maximum in a short time

We travelled on the cable car, visited the Museum of the Soviet climber Mikhail Khergiani and Ethnographic Museum. Imagine a place with traditional Svan houses — machubi, mountains with snowy peaks. A hike in Svaneti is recommended to rest from the office routine and get a lot of impressions.

Mtskheta is a sacred city with a large number of architectural and religious monuments. This is a real city-museum and every traveller obligated to see it at least once in life.


In Georgia, all directions and routes are well designed. Ecotourism, infrastructure and facilities for travellers are developing here. At the same time, they do not harm ecology and protect the environment.

About ecotourism

Last year we chose adventure ecotourism in Georgia. This is the most popular form of recreation. It is chosen for rock climbing, mountaineering, hiking, diving and other active sports.

This is a responsible journey through natural areas, which contributes to the protection of nature. Among the areas places with relatively untouched nature or preserved an authentic lifestyle. These are nature reserves, national parks or ancient villages. The main purpose of the trip is to explore the natural and cultural peculiarities of the country and get acquainted with the traditional life of the locals, to live in the wild.
