National parks of Georgia

Georgia is an amazing country! In addition to the hospitality of its inhabitants and a unique cuisine, which has no equal anywhere in the world, the Transcaucasian republic invites guests to enjoy the majestic mountains, the purest lakes and mineral springs known to people for a long time. Ten national parks of Georgia are its property and pride, and in each of them an inquisitive traveler finds unique landscapes and natural beauties.

In hospitable Kakheti

The Kakheti wine region is a popular tourist destination in the Republic of Georgia. The national parks of Kakheti are annually visited by thousands of tourists who want to taste the real gold of this land - delicious Georgian wines. Guests can see how grapes are harvested and the drink of the gods is prepared in two national parks:

  • In the mountainous region of Tusheti, practically untouched by a large civilization. Rare animals and unique plant species are still found in this national park of Georgia. Tusheti is home to the Caucasian chamois and the Caspian wolf, mountain pheasants and lynxes. There are many hiking and horse trails in the park, and unique historical monuments - fortresses and towers - have been preserved in the old villages. You can stay in any of the family hotels.
  • Vashlovani Park on the very border with Azerbaijan was created to preserve the light steppe forests. The unique landscape is created by canyons and karst caves, and the rich flora is represented by more than 650 species of plants, including figs, pomegranates, maples and pistachio trees. The fauna of the reserve is not only foxes, wolves and wild cats, but also graceful leopards.
