Georgia & Armenia: Journey to the Caucasus 2022-23


13 days from $7,195 per person

Limited to 18 guests

This journey is a unique opportunity to travel with other international guests on a limited-edition itinerary operated by A&K Australia.

This fascinating journey to the heart of the Caucasus offers a surprising taste of Old World Eastern European charm. Bridging East and West, these former Soviet republics boast thousands of years of history, jaw-dropping scenery and a rich cultural heritage. Armenia was one of the first countries to adopt Christianity, and there are magnificent churches in abundance in the most unexpected locations. Neighboring Georgia lays claim to the world’s oldest wine industry and, on this journey, rare skin-fermented wines stored underground in clay jars are uncorked and savored. The food throughout the region is delicious and hearty and, in many places, there’s a delightfully unspoiled medieval vibe.
