Great news for those who don’t ski, but would love to explore the mountains of Svaneti in winter!
Snowshoeing in Svaneti is lots of fun: a great variety of scenery, panoramas and culture heritage sites that add exciting highlights to the trails. Our snowshoeing package includes one-day radial tours (with Mestia as permanent base) in different areas of Svaneti. You will visit the ancient settlements that are still inhabited by descendants of the medieval tower-builders, discover tiny mountain churches with beautiful frescoes, enjoy the unique wide panoramas of the Great Caucasus with the soaring summits ever so close, and go where no one else goes in the winter time.
The trails are not difficult technically, so even a beginner with no experience will be able to do them. All you need is to be reasonably fit to do the vertical meters that are required on some of the itineraries. The most demanding tours gain about 800 vertical meters.
