Short trip in Georgia

Kayaking is simply a good reason to visit the amazing country of Georgia!

A journey to Georgia is not only about mountains, rivers and boats, but  it is also about the acquaintance with the culture of one of the oldest countries in the world, incredible Georgian cuisine, visits to monasteries and ancient cities, and meeting the   hospitable  Georgian people who can tell a large number of interesting legends and stories about their land.

A one-week trip covers one or two regions. Western Georgia is the most diverse in terms of kayaking, so most likely we will go there. In 7 days we will devote maximum time to kayaking and a minimum of days on the road.

Itinerary:

Our journey will start at the airport of Tbilisi, Kutaisi or Batumi, depending on the convenient flights for the majority of the group.We will spend most of the time in the West Georgia, there is the greatest concentration of different class of white water.

In one week we will make a large ring route, about 1,000 km through Western Georgia. Given the water levels, we will ride along those rivers and sections that will be of interest at the moment.

Each time we will build a route based on: the water level in the rivers, the skills of the participants and the weather conditions.

Difficulty:

Overall classification of the rivers in the trip is class III+ . Basically, any river on our route can provide sections from class II-III- upto IV.

Requirements to participants:

You must be able to roll confidently and follow the lines in class II-III whitewater.
