Lake Rica, Gagra

4.6
#1 of 15 in Nature in Georgia
Nestled in the Caucasus in the disputed territory of Abkhazia, Lake Rica offers a tranquil space to explore. The lake, which is fed by six rivers, has a mysterious air about it that has inspired local legends. One such tale tells that the lake was once a river valley that was caused to fill with water by a sword thrown in an attempt to rescue Ritsa, a girl of the valley. Head out onto the lake and take in the views of the forest, which covers the mountains to the water's edge. Swim in the deep blue lake or fish for trout, which are abundant within the lake and river systems. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Gagra holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lake Rica and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
