Georgia in winter is something else. The green forests, clean white mountains and the winter sport opportunities that it gives are as stunning as they are overwhelming.
On the days of winter sports, a ski pass for every participant is included in the price.
The roadtrip loading up our mighty 4×4’s. We start going up on the Georgian Military Highway straight after. Soon after departure the mountain peaks of the Caucasus Mountain Range will appear. With a view stops at beautiful viewing points along the way we soon make it up to Gudauri. Our first encounter with the Georgian slopes will soon follow. The eleven lifts and gondola’s bring us to astonishing heights of 3500 meter. Look over Russia, Chechenia and many other mountains peaks all across the greater Caucasus. At night we have our first Supra in the mountains, warm yourself up with home-made chacha and the most delicious foods that Georgia had to offer.
To have a change of sceneries we have the option to discover the wider area by snow scooter*. For the more adventurous lot you can get a bird’s eye view of the greater Kazbegi region from the sky. With a professional and experienced instructor you’ll paraglide* over the mountain range. The peace and quiet when tour up there is unimaginable.
For those that just want to be on the slopes and know there is still a lot left undiscovered after just being in the Gudauri ski resort for a few days the snow covered mountains are always there for the taking.
Georgia is one of the few places left that still offers heliskiing*. Adventurous and a way to enjoy your descend in total silence with just the birds and crisp sounds of the snow under you.
Time to dive into Georgian culture a bit more. Georgia is the birthplace of wine. Remains of Georgian traditional wine making have been discovered and they date back to 8000 years ago. Kakheti, the region we cruise to today, is known as THE wine region the country. First we visit the one of the oldest and biggest wine producers of Georgia. Afterwards we visit a small winery situated right at the home of the Milorava family, small and authenthic wines grown right in the yard and made with ‘’qvevri’s’’. We spent the night in Telavi, here our guesthouse offers us a typical Kakhetian supra. Kakhetians are masters of the barbeque, using exclusively wine branches to roast the food.
We take the beautiful Gombori pass down to Tbilisi. A road made for road trips and one that will make you feel like you have been driving a Soviet car all your life. As the city dooms up it is time to release the mountain cold that we might have brought with us. ‘’Tbili’’ means warm in Georgian, and the natural hot spring surrounding the city define a lot of Tbilisi’s history. We visit the oldest and most historical part of town where the century old bathhouses are located. After a week in the mountains this is the way to relax ‘’Georgian style’’. The harsh looking messages are complementary.
