The Caucasus is one of the places in the world where gold can be found. It is believed that one of the reasons that brought the Greek argonauts to the Caucasus was the search for gold. It was common to use sheeps’ wool in this search. The fleece was attached to a piece of wood and put into the river with the fleece side up. Small pieces of gold that would then easily get caught in the fleece. After some time the Svans took the piece of wood with the fleece out of the river to dry. When it was dry, the gold would fall out of the fleece. This excursion takes the participants to a river where with a little bit of luck, it is possible to find gold. Registration for the excursion one week in advance through the hotel is necessary.
