Often cited as the heartland of rugby, the standard of play is extremely high here — boasting France’s Aviron Bayonnais and Biarritz Olympique as chief rivals in the region — and serves as the ideal base for touring teams looking to test their resolve on both sides of the Spanish and French border. Teams can also prepare for the rigours of the season with a productive stay at one of our Basque Country pre-season rugby camps.
With an exciting array of cities to visit (Batumi, Gudauri, Kutaisi ,Tbilisi) and an excursion list that offers respite from the rigours of match day preparation, you’ll be nothing but impressed at Georgia’s rugby quality and competitiveness of packages for your next rugby tour.
The rugby clubs across the country offer teams a warm welcome.  Anyone who has taken their team on a rugby tour to Holland has countless tales of lengthy post-­match hospitality!  With regional flights from across the UK, along with the ready availability of coach travel, Holland as a rugby tour destination really is an affordable and simplistic option for your forthcoming trip.
Italy’s introduction to the annual Six Nations tournament marked the country firmly on to the rugby tour map. Clubs at youth level lie in wait across all categories to pit their passion and determination against your touring squad. Touring Italy is worth it just for the post-match festivities alone.
