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.
