Travel program.

Day 1. Arrival and transfer.

After arriving at Kutaisi airport, the bus transfer to Batumi takes place (approx. 1 hour) with subsequent check-in at the hotel. You are free to take a break or, alternatively, to explore the city. The modern city of Batumi on the Black Sea is the number 1 holiday destination in Georgia and the relaxed holiday atmosphere paired with a mild subtropical climate invites you to relax and makes you want to get to know more of the city. In Batumi we find a peaceful mix of different nationalities, cultures and beliefs. In terms of architecture, there is also harmony between old and new and modern skyscrapers meet ancient buildings. In the afternoon, the test drive is due to make sure that every motorcycle is tailored to its rider. At the end of this exciting day, we will have dinner together in a local restaurant.

Motorbike trip around Batumi.

After breakfast there is another motorcycle check followed by an off-road test drive towards the Turkish border across subtropical forests and the local settlements. In Batumi there is up to 90% humidity and it rains frequently and heavily. Today’s enduro trip consists of single treks through lush vegetation on red, partly rocky clay soil. It should be noted that the test drive off-road depends on the weather.

Special feature: In order to be able to spend this day in the forest, we need passes from the local border police. Please take your passport with you, preferably in a protective cover.

Day 2. Batumi – Goderdzi Pass (Lesser Caucasus).

Today starts early and at sunrise we say goodbye to Batumi and set off through the subtropical forest areas in the direction of the Semo-Adjara region. The first 50 km we drive on an asphalt pass road along the Ajariszqali river, which is lined with lush green vegetation and eaves-like natural landscapes. Although the mountains in Adjara do not reach the imposing heights of the Caucasus, they offer plenty of exciting variety during the journey. Our motorcycle tour is rich in mountain and valley trips as well as refreshing river crossings. We drive past numerous picturesque mountain villages and then reach the Goderdzi Pass (3000 meters) in the small Caucasus in the evening.

After this interesting layover, it’s time to storm the mountains. The Svaneti region is located in the northwest of Georgia, on the border with Russia, and is one of the most popular tourist areas in the country. The picturesque small town of Mestia has developed into a real tourist magnet in recent years and offers a wide range of attractions and services that are increasingly geared towards motorcycle tourism. You will certainly agree that Mestia is at the top of any motorcycle lover’s list of top sights, an absolute must! Despite its popularity, the place has remained down-to-earth and in the evenings you can meet herds of local cows strolling through the city on their way home. On our motorcycle route we visit original villages, in which time has literally stood still and the way of life seems almost unchanged for centuries.
