About Sights – Martvili Canyons

The Martvili Canyons (Georgian: მარტვილის კანიონი) in Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti region are named after the nearby town of Martvili. The spectacular canyons, caves and waterfalls were formed over time by the Abasha River and feature beautiful green and blue colors.

A boatman can be hired to take you through the quieter stretches of the canyons.

How to get there? The canyons are about one hour’s drive from the city of Kutaisi. A week day visit is recommended as the canyons attract a lot of visitors at weekends.
