Discover the soul of Georgia through a private cycling tour designed exclusively for you. Glide through the serene landscapes and historical echoes of the Georgian countryside in an intimate setting. This full-day expedition promises not just a journey through the scenic Rkoni Fortress and the sweeping vistas of Tedzami river valley, but a personal encounter with Georgia's rich past, all wrapped up with a picturesque picnic in nature’s lap. Delve into a day of bespoke travel where every pedal stroke leads you through a story, every path a discovery.



Your private tour kicks off with a convenient pickup from your hotel in Tbilisi, ensuring a smooth start to your day of exploration. Transported to the village near Akhaltsikhe Castle ruins, your cycling adventure begins. Heading west through the historic Kartli region, the route ascends alongside the calming flow of the Tedzami river, guiding you to a quaint, narrow wooden bridge before unveiling the dramatic Drisi Castle, perched majestically above.

Crossing the river through a breathtaking canyon, you enter the heart of Algeti National Park. Established in 1965, this protected area spans altitudes from 1,100 to 1,950 meters (3,609 to 6,398 feet) above sea level, offering a canvas of rich flora and fauna that frames your journey through the Georgian wilderness.

Midway through your tour, enjoy a picnic lunch in one of the park’s most scenic locations, providing a perfect blend of natural beauty and relaxation. After lunch, the trail leads you to the charming village of Rkoni. Here, you’ll explore the ancient Rkoni Monastery complex and the venerable old stone bridge, dating back to the 7th century. This monastery stands as a testament to Georgia’s layered history and architectural heritage.

Continuing the journey, the path climbs towards the Green Mountain pass at 1030 meters (3,379 feet). From this vantage point, you are treated to expansive views of the Mtkvari gorge and, on clear days, the towering ranges of the Great Caucasus.

Descending from the heights, your private tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel in Tbilisi, marking the end of an unforgettable day. Throughout your adventure, ancient temples and ruins accompany you, whispering silent stories of Georgia’s past. This exclusive experience is not just a trip — it’s a personal journey through the timeless landscapes and rich history of Georgia, enhancing your travel experience with every pedal stroke.
