0) Planning an elopement or a wedding in Georgia Republic: Is it that hard???

Back in 2019 we did a 18 day road trip around Georgia Republic with a caravan and it has been one of the most incredible journey we've ever done. What an underrated destination and the best thing about Georgia is that it's still under the radar of mass tourism. But we guess it will change soon in a couple of years. In fact, some parts of Georgia, like Kazbegi or Mestia are already quite commercialized! 

Do not be disappointed though, as most of the country has hardly been visited by tourists and there are many pure, quite raw regions where the locals will bless you with their hospitality. Here are the best off-the-beaten-path places to go backpacking in Georgia: The mountains of Adjara (on the border with Turkey), some Kakheti villages, Tusheti, Chiatura, Abkhazia, Racha...

You can see our full trip here on Thuy's blog

This is the ultimate European travel destination. This Caucasian country is definitely home to the most striking mountains in Europe, consisting of massive glaciers, fairy meadows and 5,000-meter snow-capped peaks. And so much more.... Looking back at the photos we can't escape from the bittersweet nostalgia feelings and thought to ourselves it must be amazing to have an elopement here hence this guide - this is written for our adventurous couples.
For ultimate guide to planning an adventure elopement in general, click the link below!

1) How to Travel to Georgia Republic?


Travel to Georgia by plane

- Via Tbilisi - Tbilisi has many connections to many European countries, some Asian destinations and Dubai and other cities in the Middle East.

- Via Kutaisi - There is a low cost airport with many Wizzair flights from several European cities, so it would be a good opportunity to visit Kutaisi for people on a budget. Also if you want to visit the Svaneti region (which in our opinion is one of the most beautiful regions in Gerogia), Kutaisi would be a much better/closer gateway than Tbilisi!

Travel to Georgia by land

- Russia - Officially, only one border with Russia is open, the one in Kazbegi. Then you have the South Ossetian border, which cannot be used for entering / leaving Georgia, and the border with Abkhazia, which can be used for leaving but not for entering.

- Azerbaijan - There are two official borders, one closer to Tbilisi that can be crossed by train and the other in the Kakheti region. Both are friendly and very easy to pass through.

- Armenia - There are three borders to choose from, depending on where you want to go.

- Turkey - These are two very friendly borders, the simplest is the coastal border that takes you straight to Batumi.

- Ukraine - You can travel by ferry from Odessa in Ukraine to Georgia. There are two companies that offer this service, Ukrferry and Ferrysped. You can find detailed schedules on their websites. A ticket costs around 100 USD. 

Transport around Georgia Republic

- In Tbilisi you have taxi, bus, metro and private yellow van. Like in most big cities, taxis in Tbilisi have a reputation for overcharging tourists, especially when travelling to the city from the airport or the train station. Instead, you can use a ride booking app, which works for taxis and private cars. There are several to choose from

- Train – There is a train line that goes all the way to Zugdidi, Batumi and also to Armenia and Azerbaijan. You can book your train tickets at the train station itself but you better buy them online through their website. Do book them in advance, especially in summer because they run out pretty quickly.

- Marshrutka – Marshrutkas are the tiny mini-vans used to move around the country. They go pretty much anywhere, are the cheapest way to move around and leave once they are full.

- Renting a car – this is what we did. We found a car with a caravan on airbnb. Definitely the most flexible and convenient way to explore Georgia, especially the lesser known destinations. Georgians are driving quite crazy but if you drive carefully, you should be all right. If you want to see off the beaten tracks you should considering renting a 4x4 that be able to go off-road.

2) Best Time to have a Wedding & Elopement in Georgia Republic

Georgia is a unique destination in that there’s really never a bad time to visit! With a diverse climate, it tends to rain less in the east of the country, but it’s much colder, and to the west, it’s the opposite with more rain but higher temperatures. But even then, the weather can still be unpredictable, changing throughout the day, so it’s always best to come prepared for every eventuality. No matter the season though, there’s always a part of Georgia, or something interesting, to keep you occupied.

Visit Georgia in Winter (December to February)

Georgia has several ski resorts, with Gudauri being the most popular, about 3 hours from Tbilisi, or further afield in other popular ski destinations such as Bakuriani, Mestia, Goderdzi or Mitarbi, so it’s a popular way to spend chilly winters surrounded by snow-covered mountains. But, far from just an ideal time for winter sports, there are plenty of reasons to visit Georgia in the winter, especially if you want a winter wonderland wedding with majestic mountains in the back drop. Next time we want to come back to Georgia in winter!

Visit Georgia in spring (March to May)

An all-round ideal time to visit Georgia, the weather is warm and sunny and there is always a lot to do in spring. It's a perfect time to stroll through the capital of Tbilisi and admire the historic sights, gardens and museums.

It's also your best opportunity to take a comfortable hike among the beautiful wildflowers in the lowland regions of Georgia, but it might be too early to hike in the Georgian Caucasus. It may be raining in March or late May from the winter season. It is therefore best to be prepared for some fluctuations. Overall, however, this is one of the best times to visit Georgia when it comes to the weather.

Spring is also a good time for holidays such as Easter and Georgia's Independence Day. It's worth planning your perfect itinerary for such holidays to get a feel for Georgian culture, enjoy good food, and immerse yourself in celebrations.

Visit Georgia in Summer (June to August)

While it can get uncomfortably hot in the capital in summertime, the high mountainous regions and the coastal area by the Black Sea has slightly lower temperatures, hence the best time for trekking in the High Caucasus and for visiting the coastal region because it’s the only time the Caucasus mountains aren’t covered in snow and temperatures are more suitable for trekking

Visit Georgia in the fall (September to November)

That's what we did. Our trip to Georgia was from Mid-September to Early October. I think that September would be one of the ideal months to travel to Georgia because the trekking season is not over yet, the weather in Tbilisi is great and the big crowds have already gone. Although they say it can rain quite often during the season of autumn, we had the best weather with most of the days being sunny.

Mid-September is also the harvest time. This is the best time for wine lovers to visit the Kakheti region. Head to the vineyards of Kakheti to participate in some grape harvesting (and wine sampling!). You simply cannot come to the oldest wine-producing country in the world without experiencing a wine tour.

3) How to Plan an elopement in Georgia Republic?

How long do you need to visit Georgia? How long have you got? Many nationalities enter visa-free for a year and you could easily spend that long. But ideally you’ll have 2-3 weeks. If not, you can still explore Tbilisi in a couple of days (or bypass the capital if you only care about nature and outdoor) and a few of the most impressive areas in about a week.

Planning an elopement or a wedding in Georgia is pretty straightforward. That said, we're experienced with Georgia so feel free to ask us anything!

4) Where in Georgia to have your wedding & elopement?


Tbilisi

Georgia’s capital city, cultural and culinary hub, Tbilisi needs no introduction. This is the gateway to the regions, the main transport hub, and the best place to start and end your Georgia itinerary.

Kutaisi

One of the oldest cities in Europe and the nation’s former cultural capital, Kutaisi has a lot to offer visitors in the way of history. Wine bars and restaurants serving up Imeretian cuisine, a wonderful central market, and a leafy city centre makes Kutaisi a very pleasant place to lay down your suitcase for a couple of days. It’s also a great departure point for delving into lush Imereti region – known for its waterfalls, canyons and caves – and for visiting Soviet-nostalgia destinations including Tskaltubo and Chiatura.

Batumi

The biggest city on Georgia’s Black Sea coast, Batumi is notorious for its outlandish architecture, bars and casinos. This is a resort city that comes alive in the summer months and exists off tourist dollars. But there’s another side to Batumi.

The capital of Georgia’s autonomous Adjara region, a distinct part of the country with a unique spiritual profile and its own set of traditions, Batumi is brimming with fascinating history, good food and great wine, provided you know where to look. Not to mention that Batumi is the access point for some of Georgia’s best national parks.

Mtskheta

Mtskheta, 30 minutes away from Tbilisi, is the religious capital, the spiritual heart and therefore the most important city of Georgia. It used to be the capital city before King Gorgasali changed his base to Tbilisi. It’s also one of the oldest cities in Georgia, where 4000-year-old traces of human settlements were found. Mtskheta is home to three of Georgia’s most important churches: Svetitskhoveli,  Jvari and Samtavro Monastery.

Vardzia

Vardzia is a spectacular cave monastery near Aspindza in southern Georgia. This underground monastery was built in the 12th Century, under the reign of King Tamar, the first woman that was ever crowned as a king (not a queen!) in Georgian history. It used to be completely hidden until a severe earthquake exposed and destroyed the cave monastery.

Uplistsikhe

Uplistsikhe is located in eastern Georgia, about 100 km from Tbilisi. It literally means “Lord’s Fortress” and it’s an abandoned rock-hewn town that is more than 3000 years old. It was founded around 1000 BC and was continuously inhabited until the 13th century AD. At one point Uplistsikhe even had 20000 inhabitants!

Chiatura

Chiatura, a small town nestled between steep valleys and deep gorges. Chiatura was founded in the late 1800’s as a mining colony. In 1954 the Stalinist government installed a system of cable cars, also referred to as a “rope road” to get the workers more quickly to the mines, instead of them walking to the sites on the steep cliffs. Every corner of the town was connected with the mines through these cable cars and Chiatura became known as “the cable car city”.

Omalo & other villages in Tusheti

Tusheti is one of the most beautiful, remote and fascinating regions of Georgia. It’s located in northeast Georgia, on the northern slopes of the Great Caucasus Mountains. There is only one road that goes to the area over the treacherous 2900m Abano Pass. 

It’s a beautiful mountain pass but it’s also considered as one of the most dangerous roads in the world. You need a 4×4 vehicle and nerves of steel to cross the pass but it is definitely worth it! The road to Tusheti is only open for 5 months (late May to early October).

Kakheti

Now wonder that Georgia’s Kakheti region is quickly becoming famous for serving up some of best — and most affordable — wine in the world. Not to mention, it’s one of the most beautiful places to visit in Georgia in its own right. The most popular way to tour Kakheti’s many wineries is as part of an organized day trip from Tbilisi. If you have more time, you can can opt to soak in the region’s gorgeous landscapes by spending a few nights exploring the many villages and towns in this large region.

Ushguli & other villages in Svaneti

Svaneti is our most favorite region of Georgia! Located in northwestern Georgia and locked in the heart of the Caucasus mountains lies the historic province Svaneti. The only way to get there is by driving along steep windy roads looking over beautiful gorges, wild rivers, and majestic mountains. 

Svaneti consists of several small villages, built on the slopes of the snow-covered mountains and surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of alpine meadows. Walking around in these picturesque villages that are dominated by tower-houses, gives you the feeling that you’re thrown back into the European Middle Ages. Ushguli is part of one of the highest inhabited settlements in Europe, at about 2200m above sea level.

Shatili Khevsureti

Shatili Khevsureti is a mysterious medieval fortress village, surrounded by huge green mountains. Be sure that the diversity of the scenery will amaze any traveler and inspire incurable travel lust in everyone. Modern life hasn’t penetrated this region in Georgia yet. 

Shatili is about 140 km north of Tbilisi. Because of the snow, the road is only accessible from May to October.

Juta, Chaukhi (2200m)

Adding superlatives to describe the surroundings of Juta is pointless. If you have the chance, just pack your bags and go. You won’t regret it! Juta is the most peaceful and green place in Georgia and one of the most popular climbing and trekking areas among professional climbers. There are also many equally pleasant walks to be done around the village.

The Canyons of Martvili

Martvili is located in the Samegrelo region in the western part of Georgia and is 280km away from Tbilisi. The canyon, caves and waterfalls were formed over time by the Abasha River and you can enjoy the scenery and amazing views of the dark green canyon by taking a boat trip in the river.

Bakhmaro

Bakhmaro is situated 2,000 meters above sea level and known as the highest alpine climatic resort in Georgia. Camp above the clouds, take pictures of the milky way, feel the real vibes of rural Georgia, catch a glimpse of the sun setting on the Black Sea, enjoy magnificent views, pick berries and mushrooms in the forest, cuddle up by the campfire, wake to the faint hint of the early morning sunlight and enjoy the sweet sounds of nature – this is what visiting Bakhmaro is about.

Kazbegi

Kazbegi is really an amazing travel spot for every taste and budget. From luxury lovers to hitchhikers, everyone can find something here to your liking. There are plenty of walks through the amazing valleys and one will lead you to the Gergeti Trinity Church, located at an altitude of 2170m. You also shouldn’t miss out on the hike to the Gergeti Glacier!

5) Trekking in Georgia Republic

Georgia is the ultimate trekking destination with some of the highest mountains in Europe. The highest mountain is Shkhara with 5,193 meters. A few things you should know about trekking in Georgia:

- Most of the high mountains are in the north of the country in the heart of the Greater Caucasus. If you want to hike at high altitudes, summer is the ideal season, but the end of spring and autumn should also be good.

- The Greater Caucasus is not kidding as it offers some really challenging hikes and the weather is very unpredictable. If you don't have much experience, don't go alone or try one of the busy, popular hikes.

- Except in some parts of Svaneti and Tusheti, you will not find any guest houses along the way.

- You must bring the right equipments with you.

- From epic glaciers to breathtaking snow-capped peaks, the Georgia mountains are a miracle.

6) What to do in Georgia

- Trekking & Hiking as mentioned above.

- Horseback Riding in Svaneti Region.

- Paragliding. With the proper weather conditions and planning you can soar like an eagle in some of the most breathtaking places in Georgia! Gudauri Paragliding offers both summer and winter flights. You can also checkout the Georgian Paragliding Federation Facebook page for more details. You can fill out a reservation request online and someone will contact you to discuss your possibilities. They have operations in the Tbilisi Sea, Gudauri, and Rustavi.

- Hot Air BalloonBalloon flights mostly take place in Georgia’s Alazani and Mukhrani Valley, an ancient Georgian cultural center and home of winemaking.

- Jeep Tour
This drive guarantees a view to thrill while traveling on one of the world’s most spectacular roads. The Abano Pass is a high mountain pass located in the center of the Greater Caucasus, in an area known as Tusheti, at an elevation of 2,850 m (9,350 ft) above sea level. This pass is the highest drivable mountain pass in the Caucasus and can only be traversed by 4×4 vehicles.

- White water rafting is the best way to have a thrilling river adventure. Great for bonding and team building for groups of up to six people. Georgia’s five rivers have something for everyone. Rafting season starts from the 22nd of April and last until the 15th of October. The highest water levels crest in May and June and are the most challenging times to book. July, August, and September are suggested for those who are new to the sport.

- Flightseeing
Charter a 4-seat Cessna Skyhawk or Skylane and take a 45 minute air tour over Mtskheta, Anauri, Bazaleti Lake, and Jvari Monastery. You and up to 3 passengers will depart from Natakhtari Airport, located 30 minutes north of Tbilisi, and get a bird’s eye view of the landscape. Cruising between 305 – 914 meters (1,000 – 3,000 feet) above the ground you will be able to look down on Mtsketa, the capital of ancient eastern Georgian kingdom of Iberia from the 3rd century BCE to the 5th century CE. Flying over the river and through a nearby gorge makes for a stunning view over the city and the duo-colored confluence of the Argavi and Mtkvari rivers.

- Parasailing in Batumi.

- Snowshoeing in Borjomi - Kharagauili National Park

- Heli-skiing in Gudauri
Heli-skiing is a truly unique experience: it combines the magical sensation of getting a dominating view of the mountain world, and the thrill of gliding through powdered, pristine slopes which may have been never skied down before. This is why heli-skiing has become a popular thrill-seeking adventure, attracting more skiers and snowboarders every year, from first-timers to expert free-riders.

- Climbing Mt. Kazbegi

- Katskhi Pillar

- Fishing tours: Jandari lake

- Soak Up Tbilisi’s Old Town. Ancient churches, monuments, and buildings are set against a dramatic hillside.

- Prometheus Cave

- Rock Climbing
Not only is there plenty of rock climbing throughout Georgia, but much of it is appropriate for climbers of every level. For beginners and intermediate climbers, there’s plenty to try out around Imereti. For advanced climbers, heading up into the higher reaches of the mountains offers excellent chance to test out your skills and conquer some of the range’s 4.000 meter-plus high peaks

- Georgian Wine Tasting Tour & Winery Visit.

- Tbilisi Sulfur Baths

- Visiting the remarkable Caves of Uplistsikhe.

- Relax on the Beach in Batumi.

- Speed Racer
Rustavi International Motorpark offers experiences to speed around on a closed track located on the right bank of the Mtkvari River along the Tbilisi – Red Bridge Highway, 20 km (12 miles) from Tbilisi’s city centre. The racing track has an overall length of 4.1 km (2.5 miles) and complies with FIA category II requirements for international competitions, including Formula 1.

And much more!

7) What to Pack for Wedding in Georgia Republic?

For styling inspiration (aesthetic wise, trekking, elopement attires), you can check the two links below.

- Summers tend to be hot, while winters are cold in Georgia. This means that you’ll need a variety of clothing, suited to all seasons. Also, the clothing style in Georgia tends to be on the conservative side, and most people wear darker colors.

- Roller Suitcase or Backpack? Whether you choose to bring a backpack or a roller suitcase depends entirely upon your travel style, time in the country, and the pace of your itinerary. Many people we saw chose to backpack, primarily because they were the Caucasus for six weeks, changing cities once or twice a week. On the contrary, we travel pretty slow and stay in one place for a significant of time and have our own car and caravan with us the whole time so we could get away with two big suitcases (a two year old gal needs a lot of stuff you know lol!)

- Day pack | In addition to your main bag, you should bring a smaller bag to use as a day pack.

- The key to successful packing, whether backpacking or traveling with a roller bag, is to make sure your bag is organized. In short: packing cubes! Best invention ever!

- A simple first aid kit—should contain basic medical supplies, such as bandaids, non-prescription pain killers, Neosporin, and motion sickness medicine.

- Hand sanitizer, toiletries.

11) Other things to Know Before Traveling to Georgia Republic

- Georgia is incredibly cheap (at least for now - comparing to other European destinations) so you can afford many luxurious activities in pocket friendly budget.

- Georgia is a very safe country. Not to worry much, only general precautions and common sense must be taken.

- Georgian is the official language in Georgia. Much of the population speaks Russian, owing to its time as part of the USSR.

- Georgia is becoming a new tourist and backpackers hotspot! So, if you like quiet countries with a lot to offer, you should travel to Georgia now! Within a few years, it will be bustling with tourists!

- You will find very few people who speak English (with an exception of Tbilisi), at least more than just a few words and phrases. Even in tourism-related services like guest houses and restaurants.

- Prepare yourself to see a lot of monasteries and fortresses... Not that I'm complaining though lol

- The Georgian Military Road is one of the most beautiful roads that you will ever drive!

- Georgian food is tasty but for us personally we found it to be a bit too salty.

- There many, many roadside sellers in Georgia, usually selling fruit, vegetables, honey, wine, and handicrafts. We advise you to buy from these sellers whenever it’s possible. The things are cheap and you’ll be helping the local community directly!

- Try the Tarragon Lemonade.

- Outside the bigger cities it can be difficult to find an ATM. Also most small places won’t accept cards, particularly guest houses, restaurants and very small supermarkets.

- It is advisable to rent a car and enjoy all the freedom and flexibility it gives you.
