Luxury Travel in Georgia – Located at the convergence of Western Asia and Eastern Europe in the South Caucasus, Georgia is a country rich with historical significance, ethnic diversity, and natural splendor.
Still very much an undiscovered gem in European tourism, this fresh and authentic land stands waiting to be discovered by visitors. Those who place their trust in the hands of expert local guides and warm, hospitable accommodations will experience a connection to the country more profound than what is possible in many more well-trodden destinations.
Trekking in Georgia brings awe-inspiring vistas rivaling The Alps without the hassle of tourist groups. The Caucasus Mountains pastoral beauty contains alpine and sub-alpine forests, as well as distinctive bluffs and peaks. What truly sets the mountains apart, however, are civilizations sprinkled throughout. The mountainous region is lined with ancient churches, monasteries, and castles. You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped back in time, not into tourist districts or heritage products, but into a world that retains tradition and culture as it has for centuries.
In stark contrast to the mountainous regions, the semitropical coastline on the Black Sea attracts visitors for a warm holiday. The region has recently undergone a Renaissance of sorts, in attempts to fully capitalize on their natural resources and give visitors the kind of experience that will bring them back over and over again. Ancient techniques, using Kvevri clay jars, have been added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.
A source of pride and sign of hospitality, wine is an integral part of everyday life. Traces of wine production in Georgia date back to 8,000 B.C.
Amid foreign invasions and struggles with larger empires over the last 9,000 years, the country has maintained her cultural identity and traditions. Luxury travel with Ker & Downey explores the fascinating country and experience the generous hospitality of the Georgian people.
