New Year in Georgia – a trip you’ll remember in your old age! Have you ever been to a fairytale land where the trees wear white snow coats and the Caucasus mountains stand in the background with their white snow crowns?
We invite you to immerse yourself in an unforgettable atmosphere of New Year’s Eve in Georgia and shared fun!
The New Year’s Eve trip offers not only a New Year’s Eve programme with the best Georgian traditions, but also an informative sightseeing tour. We’ll start with Kakheti, the wine region. After all, what’s New Year in Georgia without wine, right? Kakheti Alazani Valley is a place filled with peace and bliss, where beautiful landscapes caress the eye. As well as winemaking, the region is famous for its rich history and special towns such as Signagi, where you’ll find lavender-scented bed linen when you stay. Let’s give thanks for the past year and make 2023 special! Stunning views of the Alazani Valley – the snow-capped mountains of the Greater Caucasus. After the walk, a delicious dinner awaits us – not just a dinner, but a pre-New Year atmosphere!
The Alazani Valley, located in the Sakartveld wine-growing region of Kakheti, is known to many. Kakheti is Georgia’s most important wine region, producing 75% of the country’s grapes. Archaeological excavations have unearthed the remains of 8000-year-old vines and other winemaking tools, and the region is known as the cradle of the world’s winemaking. However, many other places in Kakheti are not yet as popular, one of them being Signaghi. It’s a small town in Kakheti that is slowly gaining popularity. This old mountain town charms with its cosy cobbled streets and red roofs, which blend perfectly with the panorama of the Alazani Valley and the Caucasus Mountains. Perhaps this is the reason why many couples choose this town for their wedding vows and marriage ceremony, which is believed to be the reason why it is called the City of Love.
Celebrate the New Year in snowy Bakuriani!
Bakuriani’s winter resort has a therapeutic climate, which is why it attracts a large number of visitors both in summer and winter, especially people who love skiing. An unforgettable evening programme awaits you to see how Georgians celebrate. There will also be entertainment, fireworks and New Year’s songs in the town square. On 1 January, enjoy the active leisure activities offered by the Bakuriani resort.
Skiing, ice-skating, sledding, snowmobiling and, for the truly authentic, horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Going to Kakheti.
The Kakheti Alazani Valley is a place filled with peace and bliss, where beautiful landscapes caress the eye.
Lakes, mountains, churches, wine… The Kakheti region is the cradle of winemaking. After breakfast, we head to Kakheti, the cradle of winemaking. The heart of Kakheti is the Alazani Valley, stretching along the Alazani River for 150 km. On the way, the first stop is at the winery cellar – the wine road and processes and of course the tasting ceremony. Extra: tea, coffee, chicha, cognac. Next up: The fabulous city of eternal love, Sighnaghi, surrounded by a medieval wall with 23 towers and love stories above the Alazani Valley. An artist who sold his paintings and his house in the name of beauty. The monastery of Bodbe, where Saint Nino, the light of Iberia (Georgia), rests. Near Sighnaghi, a love town famous among tourists, there is a small place in Georgia called Bodbe, where Saint Nino, one of Georgia’s most venerable saints, died in the 4th century. After his death (around 335 AD), King Mirian ordered the erection of St. Nino in Bodbe. He ordered the temple of St George to be built in Bodbe. Many centuries later, it still preserves the Church of Saint George. The relics of St. Nino are still preserved here, and the monastery has become a place of pilgrimage for Christians. The Bodbe Monastery is in a very beautiful location, with a lookout point just behind it, offering a beautiful view of the Alazani Valley. Around the main temple, there is a very picturesque park where you can walk and admire the wonderful natural beauty of Georgia. The place recharges you with energy and spiritual power, and you start to feel inspired and spiritually uplifted when you visit Bodbe. Accommodation at the Signaghi Hotel. You’ll be staying in the ethnic KAKHETI VILLA HOTEL – with all the amenities and stunning views! On the hotel grounds, you will find a sauna, a fireplace and excellent Kakhetian cuisine, as well as cotton bedding scented with lavender – we need a special touch to ring in the old year! First, let’s take a stroll around the ancient city of Love. The fabulous city of eternal love, Sighnaghi, surrounded by a medieval wall with 23 towers and love stories over the Alazani Valley.
