What to expect on your Georgia holiday

In winter, the jagged alpine peaks are deep with snow and offer miles of virgin Swiss-run heli-skiing from comfortable mountain hotels. In spring the slopes become a riot of wildflowers, while in summer the high passes remain a vivid green offering some excellent trekking into remote valleys, often unspoilt by cars, where an almost medieval atmosphere prevails.

Lower down, the terrain and the atmosphere are more Italianesque. The summers are hot, there are huge vineyards, isolated rural communities and yet everywhere there is a sense of history and culture. Many of the Orthodox churches date from the 10th and 11th centuries and it is not unusual to find original unrestored frescoes on the walls. Food and wine are excellent but above all, it is the Georgians themselves who are such fun.

Where to stay in Georgia

Hotels range from large multinational resorts in the capital to simple, clean, family-run pensions with all kinds of categories in between. Hotels are now available in most locations and these tend to be the preferred choice of travellers as there are more facilities on offer. Five-star hotels can only be found in Tbilisi, Borjomi and Batumi.

Some good four-star hotels offer bags of character, such as Rooms Hotel Kazbegi. In more remote locations perhaps consider a locally run guesthouse to experience local living. The reason to visit Georgia the country, accommodation is clean and comfortable but not the focus of a trip there. We recommend going to Georgia now before it is discovered by the rest of the world.


It’s all here. Things to see and do, places to explore, moments to discover.
