Description

Join me on this amazing ski-tour where we’ll ski from village to village in the picturesque region of  Svaneti in Georgia. For 10 days, you’ll visit many historic villages, in a breathtaking setting, surrounded by towering snow-capped peaks.

The snow condition in the region is great and it will be interesting to ski and walk on powder snow. You’ll get to visit many unique places and carry back numerous unforgettable memories.

We’ll begin the journey by meeting you at the airport of Tbilisi, Kutaisi or Batumi and transfer you to the scenic village of Eceri. From there begins our ski tour.

The rest of the days will be spent skiing through various beautiful villages like Mazeri, Hadish, Ushguli and Tskhumariin. The trip also includes a visit to the city of Mestia and for most nights, we’ll be staying in cozy mountain huts with basic amenities.

The trip offers an excellent opportunity to practice your skiing skills in breathtaking alpine terrain. Regarding difficulty, this is a medium level tour which requires you to have a fit body. The snow condition is excellent for both newbies and seasoned skiers, so the trip is open for almost everyone.

Doesn’t it sound like an ideal ski-trip? So, dust off your ski-equipment and send a message to reserve your seat. You will have the time of your life!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
