7 Day Guaranteed Departure tour to Georgia

Situated in the north of the country Svaneti is bordered by both Karachay-Cherkessia and Kabardino-Balkaria in the Russian Federation. It is home to some of the highest mountains in the Caucasus. This historical region is brimming with ancient villages and the locals known as Svans have largely retained their culture and heritage for centuries. Characteristic of this region are the Svan towers (koshki) built in the medieval period to act as defense and signal towers against invading armies. Skin up to some of the highest passes in the region and ski through these beautiful mountains exploring the medieval towers and Churches of Svaneti on the way, be awe struck by some of the highest peaks in Europe and prepare to be immersed in local mountain culture. 

  • Enjoy a warm up day of lift based ski touring in the forests around Mestia.
  • Discover ancient defense towers and villages with churches dating back to the 9th Century.
  • Skin up to 3500m peaks and experience incredible 2000m descents on un touched powder back into the valleys in the shadow of 4-5000 meter plus mountains.
  • Cross remote mountain passes as we ski through endless wilderness from village to village in this forgotten part of the world. 
  • Be awestruck by the sights of Mt. Shkhara (5068m) and Mt. Tetnuldi (4858m).

Je viens de passer quelques jours magnifiques en Géorgie, le pays que je voulais visiter depuis longtemps, finalement nous nous sommes rencontrés grâce à FLAMINGO TOUR, l'équipe (que je recommande hautement) des professionnels, des gens passionnés pour leur métier et fiers de leur pays riche en histoire, en gastronomie, en personnalités exceptionnelles. Le tombeau de la Sainte Nino, l'ancienne ville de Mtskheta, le cathédrale Svetickhoveli, l'abbaye caché en haut dans les montagnes, les vignobles privés, les caves de vin remplis de l'histoire..tout cela m'a impressionné jusqu'au fond de mon coeur. Je suis tombée amoureuse de ce pays merveilleux..❤️Je vous promets, FLAMINGO TOUR GEORGIA que je reviens. Donc, à très bientôt! Merci beaucoup, Madlobt!
