Tours around Tbilisi (7): White Water Rafting on Aragvi River

Tbilisi offers a wide range of 1- day tours.
Georgian Tourism Association (GTA) has tested some of them.

Please note:

GTA does not sell tours, the service is for information only and we do not take responsibility for any inconvenience that people might encounter during the proposed tours.


Tour 7: White Water Rafting on Aragvi River

Descend the Caucasus Rivers with the melting snow.

Aragvi Rafting is a fun sport activity for ½ to 1 day as soon as the weather is warm enough to melt the snow in the mountains. There are two options depending on the water level: Mtiuletis Aragvi (Pasanauri-Chartali, difficulty WW 2-3 (on a scale from WW 1 to WW 6)) and Pshavis Aragvi (Magharoskari – Tvalivi, difficulty WW 2-3). The first offers the bigger waves (when the water is high) and the shorter access, the second the more technical rafting and the more beautiful valley. Whatever the choice, you’ll have to paddle hard to deserve the picnic or barbecue at the end.

Equipment (i.e. Neoprene suits, helmets, lifejackets) is included and you’ll have a professional guide to find the best route down the river.

Individuals will find their chances of joining a group increased on weekends.

For more difficult White-Water Rafting (Mtkvari Canyon at Vardzia WW 3-4), Rioni WW 3-4, Zkhenis Tsqali WW 3-4) and multi day trips, individual arrangements with the local Rafting Companies can be made.
There is also a possibility of Rafting on Mtkvari River in Borjomi (WW 2-3) easy but with nice waves.

It is advisable to make a reservation at least 2-3 days in advance

How to get there

The Rafting Companies offer transport from Tbilisi but you can also go to the rafting base individually (and make the rafting descent part of a multi day trip i.e. to Gudauri, Kazbegi or Shatili).

Best Season
