There's more than one must do hike in Georgia. The 4-day Chuberi to Mestia hike in Georgia's Svaneti region offers up moody forests trails, dozens of snowcapped mountains, challenging mountain pass ascents and descents, river crossings, quaint villages and of course, wonderful Georgian hospitality. And you might just have the trail all to yourself.
While Georgia is becoming very popular as a summer destination owing to its hiking trails, it’s also a destination that shouldn’t be missed in the wintertime to experience excellent ski resorts, awe-inspiring mountains, and hearty food.
If you thought heading to Europe for winter sports would break your meagre backpacker budget – then you’re in for a surprise. Central and Eastern Europe boasts a handful of ski resorts offering cheap lift passes and lessons for the beginner skier or snowboarder.
