In this fertile region, wine has been cultivated in Georgia for thousands of years and exported worldwide. Afterwards we ride on the highest and narrowest gravel road in Georgia, which winds through a beautiful, untouched mountain landscapes of the Caucasus, to the Abano Pass at an impressive 2926 meters above sea level.

Off road tour to Rustavi: Today an unforgettable, 138 km long ride through the steppe awaits you, which reminds you of a bizarre moon landscape with its barren desert character. The route leads to a forgotten rock monastery, a remote relic from the past with beautiful wall paintings from the Byzantine period. The monastery is regarded as an absolute insider tip and is only approached by a few off-road tours who know the area and not by mass tourism. In the afternoon we will visit the famous Dawit Garedscha Monastery, dating back to the 6th century, which is associated with the origin of Christianity in Georgia and has a particularly high religious and spiritual significance.

In the late afternoon we visit a world famous UNESCO cultural heritage site, the medieval cathedral Sveticxoveli.

Day 7: The old and modern city of Tbilisi/Tbilisi

A walk through history: After the rule of the Byzantines followed the Persian Kingdom, the Arab caliphate, the Khoresm Kingdom and then the Ottoman Empire. The small country in the Caucasus was also marked by the invasion of the Mongols and Tamerlans, the birth of Christianity and last but not least by the communist era of the Russian rulers. Each of these epochs has left its legacy in Tbilisi, which is visible in the oriental palaces, the magnificent orthodox churches, the madrasas (Koranic schools) and the famous sulphur baths. Since its foundation in 458, the history of today's city of Tbilisi, formerly Tbilisi, has been marked by constant change and turbulent historical events such as wars, economic uprisings and destruction and revival. For complete relaxation on the day off, we recommend a sulphur bath followed by a professional massage, only 5 minutes walk from the hotel. In the evening you can end the tour with a pleasant restaurant visit in one of the numerous top restaurants in the city.

Afterwards we reach the volcanic plateau on which the deep blue Tabatskuri Lake is located.

Day 12: Return flight

Georgia

Georgia is located in the Eurasian Caucasus between the Black Sea to the west, Russia to the north and Azerbaijan to the south. Georgia, the cradle of viticulture, is a Christian country and boasts sincere, warm hospitality and one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world, perfect for exploring by motorcycle.

Georgia lies at the crossroads of caravan and trade routes, which in the Middle Ages were important transport routes between Europe and Asia. The medieval traditions, which date back to the time of the famous Silk Road, can be felt everywhere. For a long time, Georgia was considered a strategically important hub for the world's trade routes, especially in its role as a significant base of the famous Silk Road, which is steeped in history and today provides a wonderful backdrop for adventurous motorcycle tours in Georgia.

Georgian hospitality is legendary. The conviction that guests are gifts of God and must be treated with appropriate reverence is firmly anchored in the national thinking of Georgians. The Georgian tradition of toasts (Georgians pride themselves on having invented them) combines poetry and philosophy.

Try the famous Georgian wines, delicious specialties lovingly prepared by hand such as Khachapuri, Hinkali, homemade sheep's cheese and the hearty, traditional mutton shashlik. Not only love goes through the stomach, but also the national spirit of a country can be better understood and taken to the heart by its variety of dishes.

Experience all facets of this amazing country on a guided motorcycle tour through Georgia!
