This tour will take you through two charming villages off the beaten tourist track: Zhamushi and Lakhiri. Marvel at the amazing architecture from the 10th–12th centuries and immerse yourself in authentic village life. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the Archangel’s Church of Lakhiri, situated high above the village in the alpine zone.

We recommend leaving the horses near the church and continuing on foot for an even more rewarding experience. The ridge is very steep and lacks a defined trail, but if you ascend another 100 meters, you will be greeted with a breathtaking view of the entire valley.

The excitement of riding in Svaneti is, in just one word, authentic. You ride the same trails that locals use when tending cattle or going hunting. The horses you ride are the same ones that work in households, and even the gear is exactly what the owners use for their daily tasks. How much closer to the real experience can you get?

You don’t need to be an experienced rider to enjoy these tours. It's actually a perfect opportunity to try horseback riding! The mountain trails are not suitable for galloping, so the tours are mostly at a walking pace. In some places, you may need to dismount and lead the horse, especially on slippery downhill sections, but local horses are adept at choosing the best route.
