Georgia: Explore the Black Sea region where beaches and snowy peaks collide

Enjoy Adjara’s breathtaking national parks

Adjara, a haven for ecotourism and home to four natural areas that are rich in fauna and flora, is home more than one million raptors. The spectacular birds of prey are seen in the area known as the Batumi Bottleneck. Adjara’s largest city Batumi is the ideal base for viewing the spectacle.

Machakhela National Park is located just 40 minutes from the city. It joins Kintrishi National Park (and Mtirala National Park) to make a trio of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

These forests can be as old as 20 million years. This is amazing for nature lovers.

Zoidze says that this is the only area in the world where both the colchic forest (a humid, deciduous rainforest) and wetlands coexist. Some of these forests date back to 20 million years. This is amazing news for nature lovers.

These parks are part of the Kobuleti Protected Areas which cover 13% of the Adjarian Region. They have been updated with modern services such as guesthouses and tourist shelters to allow those who wish to stay longer.

You can experience Adjara’s local culture from a variety of places.

Adjara is home to authentic mountain villages, monasteries and monuments. It also contains arch bridges and arch bridges that connect them all. This gives tourists the opportunity to see 8,000 years of human history.

Batumi’s narrow streets ring with the sounds of polyphonic singing. Locals and tourists are often seen performing ancient Adjarian dances.

Adjara has been a modern pearl in Georgia thanks to its ability to host world-class hotels and art exhibitions, as well as sporting tournaments.

Gonio Apsaros Fortress is one of the most fascinating historical sites, 12 km from Batumi on the banks the Chorokhi River.

The fortress was built in the 1st century and served as a support citadel for the Romans, Byzantines, and Ottomans. The museum contains remnants of these ancient empires.

Georgian mountains are a great place to embrace your adventurous side.

Adjara is a paradise for thrill-seekers, with its forests, ocean, and waterfalls. There are many activities such as diving, rafting and horse riding available all year.

Skiers further inland can also head to Georgia’s highest mountain ranges to hit the slopes. These mountains are at elevations of up to 2500 metres above the sea level.

The sun-kissed beaches can be enjoyed by visitors, while fresh snow can be carved through the next day.

Four pistes covering 8 km of powdery snow make the Goderdzi ski resort a favorite among families and sports enthusiasts. Visitors can enjoy the sun-kissed beaches and then go out on to the mountains to carve fresh snow.

What should I eat in Adjara and what should I drink?

Adjarian cuisine is an unusual blend of Asian and European spices that has evolved over the centuries to create a distinct gastronomy. Zoidze believes that Adjarian Khachapuri is a local delicacy and must be experienced on any visit to the area.

She says, “Each region of Georgia has its own version, but ours is exceptional.” It’s bread with cheese stuffed inside and baked in the oven. We add an egg yolk at the end and then top it with a buttery pat. A glass of Georgian wine is a great way to wash it all down.

Georgia’s traditional wine-making method dates back to 8,000 years. It uses a traditional clay vessel known as a qvevri. Wine lovers have been drawn to this region by its unique flavours and distinctive tastes. UNESCO has also included it on its list as an intangible cultural heritage.

There are more than 500 varieties of grapes and over 3,000 types of wine.

The centre of Georgia’s vineyards is Keda, where the most sought-after grapes are the chkhaveri and tsolikauri. The first grape is used to make dry white wine. The second is dark and pink-skinned and is harvested later in the season.

Zoidze adds, “We have over 500 varieties of grapes and more than 3,000 varieties wine.”

“We believe that Georgian wines are the best in the entire world.”
