Martvili Canyons

There is quite a long drive from Tbilisi to Martvili Canyon, so tour will start early morning  9 am and finish around 9 pm. In case landing is in Kutaisi airport, the area is pretty close.
We take early morning drive to the direction of Martvili canyons, Georgia's most spectacular canyon.
This wonderful place is located in the Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti region, Georgia. The small city of Martvili is just half an hour away from Kutaisi. Martvili district is truly one of the gorgeous places in Georgia – combining a unique natural environment. You will be shocked by brilliant scenery, sensational waterfalls, and a boat trip in the river with deep green color. You can lend a boat with a boatman, and he will take you on an unforgettable journey between high rocks in the canyon. The walls of the canyons are covered with moss. After Martvili canyon drive to Okatse canyon (30 minutes between canyons).
In Okatse canyon local 4X4 car will be waiting at the entrance as canyon requires quite a while of trekking. After Okatse visit we drive to Tskaltubo (50 mins from Okatse canyon) . Prometheus caves can aslo be added in this tour if time allows. Kumistavi (Prometheus Cave) that is the most magnificent cave in Georgia. Kumistavi owes a famous Caucasian myth about Amirani for the sonorous naming of the “Cave of Prometheus.” The legend says that Amirani, like Prometheus, angered the Gods and was punished brutally. The eagle tormented him, eating his liver; however, unlike the Greek giant, cruel Gods chained Amirani not to the rock but somewhere inside a massive cave. Presumably, it is in Kumistavi. Khvamli Mountain is visible from Prometheus Cave and is the place where legend says that Prometheus was chained. There are spectacular views of stalactites, stalagmites, petrified waterfalls, underground rivers, and cave lakes. Throughout the cave, there are colorful lights, ranging from orange, red to pink and blue. You have two options to enjoy with an impressive cave tour. You may choose a walking tour along the 1600m route or the boat ride along the underground river.
Head back to Tbilisi and reach it late in the evening.
