This 2-day tour in Georgia takes you out of Tbilisi, and to the churches and fortresses of northern Georgia, along the Georgian Military Highway. Start with Mtskheta and Jvari, two of the most important places in the Georgian Orthodox Church. Jvari is high on a hilltop, overlooking Mtskheta and the Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers. Continue to Ananuri, a medieval fortress, located on the slopes of the Zhinvali Reservoir. Though it’s not the oldest building you’ll see, it’s a great example of fortresses as they were built along major trade routes and as they served Georgian royal families. As you continue further up into the mountains, the slopes get steeper and steeper. At the top of one of these steep hills, right above the town of Stepantsminda, is Gergeti Trinity Church. Once used to store the church’s treasures during times of invasion, today this church has a great view of the towering Mount Kazbegi. Spend the night in the small town of Juta, before spending your second day trekking through the mountains and all the way to Tina Lake. This is the best Georgia tour for seeing both the natural and cultural wonders of this beautiful country, all in just two days.
