AUTUMN HIKING ADVENTURE
BORJOMI NATIONAL PARK
5 day-long adventure, in the most colorful, Golden season. The trail takes you through coniferous and mixed forests, alpine and sub-alpine meadows up to 2600m high. October is when the national park is at its most spectacular with the autumn gold and red colors. Enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views from mountain slopes of the lesser Caucasus. Overnight in a comfortable guesthouse right next to the national park, atmospheric mountain shelters, or authentic shepherd houses.
Another excitement that you will have on this journey is a wildlife spectacle of Caucasian Red Deer (Cervus elephus) rut. It is rutting season for stags and you will have a chance to hear roaring deers, engaged in fierce mating battles, competing for the attention of the female deers.
We will spend 4 full days. Last day we will enjoy horseback riding and a warm sulfur bath outdoors.
This trail does not ask for any specific skills, just physical fitness. We will carry our food and hiking gear on us, but as we can sleep in shelters, you can leave your tent at home and make your backpack lighter. It is an average mountainous trail with an elevation gain of 500-1.000 m by day, around 6-8 hours of trekking. The highest temperature can be up to +20 and the lowest - +5 at night.
Camp Caucasus team is thoroughly committed to excellence.
Your happy trip with no hassle is our job.

“So I got to share this incredible experience with the most amazing group of people, we did an expedition in the Georgian Caucasus Mountains trekking up to 3000 metres, seeing Black Rock Lake, averaging about 6-8 hours a day for the week, stayed in the wilderness, rode horses, hiked and climbed up to a waterfall, ate the most delicious food and wine, stayed with the most welcoming host family, shared some beautiful moments together making friendship bonds for life. Thank you to all who were a part of this little journey with me, if you ask me, I would say every human needs the wilderness to feel alive, free and well just plain happy 😊 We were also lucky enough to be a part of their new promo video, very grateful indeed! Nino and Pavels are the perfect pair to show you everything they know in Georgia, they have a relaxed friendly vibe and really show their passion with nature. I can't recommend them enough, sure to have a life-changing adventure!”

“Last week was my first experience with Camp Caucasus and first experience with mountain camping in general. In this case the organisers showed a high level of professionality organising these kind of camps. 1) organizational part was up to point; 2) organisers communicated with us properly before the camp to inform what to bring with us/what not to bring/what to expect/ what we will eat etc. in all aspects so I felt prepared; 3)in mountains we can never predict the weather percisely and I liked that organisers were open minded to change something in our scedual so we don't miss the most beautiful sights. 4) One thing I did not prepare myself was that the hiking in mountains was actually hard for me ( and I'm trained :), so be prepared physically. Another thing I did not prepare myself was generosity of Georgian people and a LOT of tasty food there. 🙃”
