Abkhazia Travel Specialist


Abkhazia; to go where few have ever gone before, you don’t always have to go that far. It is no secret that at Regent we like to do things a little differently. When it comes to exploring the four corners of our globe, its the off-the-beaten-track destinations catch our eye. The further from well-trodden tourist routes a country can be, the better! Languishing itself as a breakaway Caucasus state to the west of Georgia, Abkhazia is the place for modern travellers who dream of the golden age of exploration.

Abkhazia is a combination like no other; here a society that has navigated a curious path through history also maintains the authentic air of a country completely untouched by western tourism – and it lies just beyond the eastern reaches of Europe. Travellers here discover a small community emerging from the fall of the USSR and an almighty civil war and tentatively trying to re-establish its place in the region. Our annual group tour travels to regions where few westerners have ever been.

Cross the Georgia-Abkhazia border on foot to discover the ex-Soviet region’s gently mountainous landscape, rural communities and attractive Black Sea coastline. Beautiful forested valleys provide an idyllic backdrop to scenic domestic flights or short hiking routes while laid-back beach resorts, once popular with Stalin and Soviet citizens, find a new lease of life.

Visitors to Abhkazia should be prepared for – and excited about – having a real adventure. Tours here don't always go according to plan; once bad weather delayed a flight back from a remote mountain village and we spent a night dining with locals and sleeping in a local monastery, and the border crossing between Georgia and Abkhazia can take between an hour, and a whole afternoon.

Carl's Tips
1
When offered the local wines and dishes say yes. Just like its Caucasus neighbours, Georgia and Armenia, the food is delicious.
2
Climb aboard an ancient-looking Soviet-era biplane for a truly unforgettable flight over the mountains.
3
After visiting the small villages and ex-Soviet towns trying to rebuild, head to the Black Sea to enjoy Abkhazia's pretty slice of coast.
