FAQs

What makes our offer unique?

We love the Caucasus and its incredibly warm-hearted people. We want to offer you the same fantastic travel experiences and wonderful encounters with the locals as we are having.

Much more than car rental! Our 4×4 campers are of course ideal travel companions, but only our individually tailored route suggestions and the meetings with our local friends truly make your journey an unforgettable experience.

With our vehicles, you are explicitly allowed to leave the roads. To make sure you feel safe and confident taking your car off the roads, every tour starts with off-road driving training.

How to get there? Do I need a visa?

To reach Georgia, you’ll fly to the Georgian capital, Tbilisi. 
For most citizens, no visa is required.

For Dagestan, we recommend a flight to the capital Makhachkala via Istanbul.
You probably need a visa, which is available online.

We will pick you up from the airport, and your journey begins right away.

The Caucasus

The mighty Caucasus Mountains stretch from the Black Sea to the Caspian Sea, forming the natural boundary between Europe and Asia. The mountain peoples who have inhabited this region for millennia are legendary for their warm welcomes and hospitality.
