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.
