Wedged snugly between Europe and Asia, bordered by the Black Sea and the towering peaks of the Caucasus, Georgia is a fusion of influences from East and West but retains a culture unlike any other. Falling away from its snowy spine is a surprising tapestry of rumpled green hills, uncurling rivers and golden vines. With its ancient heritage, a choice of mountains or sea, and a reputation for superb wine, feasting and unfailing hospitality, Georgia is a rewarding destination for every traveller.
Walkers, climbers and skiers will want to explore the mountains, forests and traditional villages. The rivers are perfect for fishing and rafting while botanists and bird-watchers will be captivated by the incredible diversity of plants and wildlife. But Georgia is also famed for its beautiful churches and fortifications, from honey-coloured monasteries decorated with frescoes to cave cities hollowed from the country's backbone. And the polyphonic singing simply must not be missed. Georgia is a land unspoilt, uncrowded and waiting to be discovered.
