But the best sailing even with a kayak can be found in less than an hour from Tbilisi on the Mtkvari River, where the calm waters next to the 17th century castle will give you a sense of time.
Parachuting & horse riding
In Gudauri area, aside from skiing, you can enjoy parachuting and paragliding. Naturally, jet skiing can also be combined with skiing, but in the summer, mountain, forest, countryside and local people are definitely more attractive.
