Travel in the Caucasus

Uncover the Undiscovered in the Caucasus!

We live on a planet that has been exploited and exposed and marketed in more ways than we can comprehend. There are few places left on Earth where you can honestly ponder, "I wonder if an outsider has ever been here?”.There are few places where "exotic travel” is truly still exotic. Well, the Caucasus (Georgia and Armenia) are one such place.

Nestled in on the far western end of the old Silk Road and surrounded by foreboding, impenetrable, snow-capped mountains, the peoples of the Caucasus – the Armenians, Georgians, Assyrians, Malakans, Kurds, Turks, Ossetians, Abkhazians and more, read like names long forgotten since Bible times.

But if yout are willing to take a risk and venture well off the beaten path, you’ll find an ancient region full of peoples and cultures who are thriving in their traditions and struggling to understand how to reinvent themselves for modern times. A journey to the Caucasus is at once a trip into cultures that date back to the beginning of civilization, as well as to proud and rugged people who have histories as fierce warriors, as well as the most gracious of hosts.

The roots of Christianity are here. The birthplace of wine is here. Many of the greatest writers, thinkers, composers, chess masters, and scientists have all come from here. Unspoiled by the great wars of the last century, the towns and cities here remain as they have been for centuries – literally treasure troves of ancient and early 20th Century architecture.

It’s all here! And it has yet to be discovered by the outside world. So what are you waiting for? Come and discover – The Caucasus!
