Ski touring in Georgia, another unusual and fascinating destination, in the heart of Central Caucasus between Asia and Europe. In this area, thanks to the humid currents coming from the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, the snowfalls are punctually very abundant.
A trip to the areas between Gudauri and Gergeti, among the most interesting in Georgia. The choice is vast, and each day will have a different route depending on the best snow and safety conditions. In the last day we will visit the beautiful Tbilisi, Georgian capital.
