A tour with fantastic scenery and one of the very few that allows you to see Ushba and also Elbrus in good weather. This is an exclusive trail, so you will not be seeing many other people on your way. The first part of the trail goes through the settlements of Latali, over the Bali range, and up into the higher pastures belonging to the Latali community, right under Ushba. In summer, the meadows are full of flowers, and the tiny shepherds’ huts contrast with the skies and layers of ridges. A feeling of absolute freedom and truly Narnian landscapes.

The excitement of riding in Svaneti is, in just one word: authentic. You ride the trails the locals ride when they tend to the cattle or go hunting, the horses are the same ones that work in households, and even the gear is just what the owner uses when he is off hunting or after his herd. How much closer to the real thing can you get?

You don’t need to be an experienced rider to do these tours. Actually, it’s a good opportunity to try riding! In the mountains, the trails are not suited for galloping, so the tours are mostly walking-pace ones. In some places, you may have to dismount and lead the horse (especially downhill on slippery bits), but generally, local horses know how to choose the best route.
