When I was in Borjomi last month, I met a couple who had hired a taxi to go from Akhaltsikhe to Batumi via the mountain road. Unfortunately I cannot remember how much they paid, but it is certainly realistic to do so. They got the tourist office in Borjomi to find the taxi for them; you can probably do the same at the Batumi tourist office. It is no more ...

In general, no, there is no off-roading allowed in Algonquin Park, although there are mountain bike trails. The paved roads are the standard allowable routes by vehicle into the park. Beyond this you have to either backpack or canoe. No float planes or dirt bikes are allowed either.
