Svaneti is a small region with impressive high mountains in northwestern Georgia. These spectacular peaks lie on the border with Russia. Today I want to invite you to a unique ski touring trip, from village to village, in this wonderful region in Georgia.

Breathtaking views, spectacular mountains, medieval villages, steep slopes and thrilling runs make for an unforgettable ski touring trip in Georgia!

Located in the heart of the majestic Caucasus Mountains, Svaneti -or Svanetia- is surrounded by the highest peaks of this range, with an altitude ranging between 3000 and 5000 meters.

Starting from Tbilisi, the capital city, our ski tour will take us through the villages of Iskari, Mazeri, Mestia, Adishi and Ushguli. Nestled in the middle of breathtaking peaks, time seems to have stopped in these small medieval villages. This trip is a unique experience, a great opportunity to discover the authentic Georgia while enjoying an amazing skiing experience.

You don’t need to have a high technical level to join me on this adventure. The terrain is suitable for classic ski touring. We do ask each participant to know how to ski on all type of snow. During climbs, you will always be in the company of the guide. However, you need to have a good fitness level.

Very few people have the chance to visit this country, let alone cross from village to village. This is a truly exceptional trip! We will be skiing in the heart of the mountains. We are the only ones who can offer you to travel with a light backpack during the day. In the evening you will find all your belongings.

We offer the experience of trips already organized in this region. Every year we explore new heights.  We personally supervise all our trips, each year we offer several expeditions and ski trips in off-the beaten-path mountainous regions all over the world.
