Winter is almost over and very soon you’ll need to plan your summer vacations. Today we want to share with you some ideas for the summer, which will particularly interest active people who prefer extreme and bright emotions. We’ll tell you about the two beautiful countries of the South Caucasus, Armenia and Georgia, and will offer some unusual and interesting ideas:
Diving is one of the most exciting summer activities. Having dived in the seabed you will find yourself in a mysterious new world and forget about the everyday hectic urban life. In Georgia, there is a great opportunity to experience all these emotions. In the small village of Kvariati located at the shores of the Black Sea (15 km from Batumi) the Diving Center was opened, where everyone can take lessons from experienced masters and dive under the guidance of the instructors. The diving takes place at the site of flooding of the large ship “Vladimir Pachulia”. The ship is covered with seaweed and is surrounded by artificial reefs that attract different sea creatures. The diving will be at the depth of 7-8 meters and will last 1 hour. If you want to master the art of diving more professionally, the center offers a special five-day diving course for beginners. And if you are already an experienced diver, here you can rent all the necessary equipment: scuba, wet suits, rifles for hunting under the water, etc.
In Armenia in Gegharkunik region, there is an incredibly beautiful lake, one of the highest in the world. It is Sevan Lake – “the pearl of Armenian nature.” On its territory, operates the Nautical Research Club “Ayas”, in which the school of alpine diving was opened. Alpine diving is considered a very extreme sport. Here, experienced instructors will reveal all the secrets of diving and will carry out the training by the special methodology, which includes 5 theory lessons and 5 dives.
For lovers of beautiful nature, peace and pacification the perfect choice for a summer vacation will be horse riding. In Georgia, in the mountainous surroundings of Tbilisi there are untouched protected areas where is organized horse riding. You don’t need to have any experience to take part in it as the staff of the local ranches will provide you with the most easygoing animals and conduct a thorough briefing. During the walk, you can enjoy views of the Caucasus Mountains, encounter rare plants, admire the beautiful birds and animals. Relax and have a meal you can directly on the ranch. You can also stay in a hotel room for the night.
In Georgia, there are also many other equally beautiful places, where horse riding is organized. Horse riding is also included in almost all adventure package tours to Georgia.
In Armenia, in Tavush region, in Yenokavan town not so long ago was founded «Yell Extreme Park», where all the fans of extreme can find a great choice of activities: zip line, paragliding, biking and etc. This center also organizes horse riding that can last from 20 minutes to 7 days. The walks take place in exciting locations in the nearby fields and magnificent forests. If you choose a tour lasting more than one day, the night will be organized in tents. If you want to take part in these amazing activities just make a request to Armenian tour operators and they will organize a private tour to Armenia for you.
Paintball is a relatively new but already quite popular team game in the course of which the participants use guns shooting with paint capsules. In this game, you need to show all tour agility, savvy, and accuracy. Paintball is a boost of energy and a good mood, and it will be interesting for all persons, regardless of age and other restrictions. In Georgia, paintball is popular in Batumi – bright and lively Black Sea resort of the country. Here was opened Batumi Paintball Club with modern equipment. Here you will have detailed briefing and after the end of the game you’ll be able to visit the café, relax and share your bright impressions with the friend.
