RAFTING is the most unforgettable feeling of a real descent on a mountain river, the local beauty of nature. We offer rafting on the mountain river Aragvi Belaya.
Boats for 4-6-8 seater. The price is for one place in the boat, provided that the group is recruited for rafting. If the group is not recruited, customers pay for free space in the boat. Therefore, it is better to come to a big company.
The rafting season in Georgia begins in April and ends in October. The best season for rafting is from late May to mid July.
The Aragvi River is located in eastern Georgia – the municipalities of Kazbegi, Dusheti and Mtskheta. The length of the river is 112 km, the catchment area is 2724 square kilometers. The system of Aragvi rivers consists of Mtiuleti (white) Aragvi, Gudamakari (black) Aragvi, Khevsurskaya Aragvi and Pshavskaya Aragvi. The main tributary of the Aragvi begins in the north-eastern part of the volcanic mountains. Aragvi in the upper and middle reaches is mountainous in nature, the lower part, which flows along the Mukhrani and Mtskheta plains, is flat and flows into the left channel of the Kura River in Mtskheta. Aragvi is fed by groundwater, rain and snow, as well as glacial water.
We advise you to combine rafting in this part of Georgia with excursions and visit the Ananuri castle, the Gudauri ski resort, where you can paraglide and see the Friendship monument (panorama), as well as continue the route to Stepansminda where you can enjoy the view of the KAZBEG mountain.
