Catskiing and Heliskiing in Mestia

Fly over the medieval lands of Mestia and live a unique heliskiing adventure in the deep northwest of Georgia.

At about 1500 meters high, in the Caucasus Mountains, you will find this inaccessible but powerful Georgian town. From the heart of Mestia you can start a trek to the glaciers located at the base of Mount Ushba, or explore pristine alpine meadows on horseback. But the novelty is in its new ski resorts, which attract the attention of fans of winter sports, especially those who seek remote places to ski. Take a helicopter flight, conquer the high, virgin and wild lands of Mestia, and descend through its perfect powder runs, only seen in this Eurasian region.

There are many reasons for choosing Heliskiing and Catskiing in Mestia

Mestia is mainly populated by the Svans, a very hospitable and friendly community. They are always close to travelers, asking where they come from and what they need. Although the Westerners may find it strange, for them it is a sign of courtesy to welcome their country and their region.
