Standing tall at 18, 510 feet - the Caucasus mountains are one of the main attractions of the Republic of Georgia. The Caucasus range is the highest mountain range in Europe - higher than the alps. Though they may look beautiful - they have dangerous hairpin bends and hidden villages that one can only experience while cycling there.
We will visit Kakheti, the birthplace of wine and a region famous for its world-class vineyards. Most traditional wineries are famous for their “Kindzmarauli” (try to pronounce it!) wines, which were the favorites of Joseph Stalin. Delicious handcrafted natural wines are prepared according to ancient Georgian principles. Trust us, you'll savor every drop.
Georgian cuisine is arguably the world's original fusion cuisine. With influences from both, the East and the West - the food is one of a kind and delicious. The most common dish, khinkali is steamed dumplings filled with meat, cheese or vegetables. Fragrant meat stews, soul warming broths and fluffy flatbreads make up the day to day eats in Georgia.
