The Indian travel magazine Kunzum featured Georgia in its new issue. The article is describing activities and places of interest we offer every month. Take a look!
In January Georgians celebrate… Christmas. Yes, the Eastern Orthodox tradition makes our holiday season pretty long! You can come here to taste awesome local food anytime, but Christmas time is something special for each Georgian. It is also a ski time – by the way, you can come to Goderdzi resort to ski, and then enjoy the view of winter sea and subtropical area in Batumi, just in 2 – 2.5 hours drive.
Winter in the mountains is going on! Come to learn skiing in Bakuriani or enjoy the freeride and more steep slopes in Gudauri.
Spring is arriving slowly, but inevitably. In the mountains it is still snowy, so if you are not into winter fun, come explore the Georgian cultural heritage protected by UNESCO in Tbilisi, Mtskheta or Kutaisi, see the ancient fortresses and churches, taste the delicious local food!
It’s getting warmer! Though it is too early for hiking, you can go see cave town of Vardzia or cave monastery David Gareji, organize a jeep / buggie trip to Vashlovani National Park to see plenty of blooming trees and flowers, enjoy the natural diversity of Georgia.
On the 26th of May Georgia celebrates its independence. Share this festive feeling, as you come to the capital, Tbilisi! There are a lot of events all around the city.
Hiking time! Head to Kazbegi, Khevsureti, Borjomi-Kharagauli – there are a lot of various routes for everyone, from the beginners to the advanced mountain lovers. You can also ride horses in the mountains, which is another level of covering those paths.

This is the time of different festivals. Check the dates of Black Sea Jazz Festival (for jazz lovers) or ArtGene (for folk music, dances and arts). Georgian dances are actually something unforgettable, so make sure you will see them one day! You can also go to one of the oldest observatories in this region, which is located in a small climatic resort of Abastumani. Not easy to reach, but super interesting!
Time to go to the sea and enjoy the best of electronic music from different corners of the world! GEM Fest in a small seaside town Anaklia is calling. Four unforgettable August days and sleepless nights full or drive, music and fun… Sounds like a plan! (I enclose the pictures for GEM separately!) You can also go to the most challenging trip to Tusheti: the region which is accessible in July and August only. You’ll never forget it!
The fourth month of summer in Georgia. Go to Batumi, Kvariati or Gonio to enjoy the sea, or come in the late September for grape harvest (Rtveli) in Kakheti region. Grapes and wine are almost holy here. Or pay a visit to Kvareli or Lopota lake, have a nice spa weekend there!
Finish the harvest and have fun at Tbilisoba – the day of Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. It usually lasts the whole weekend. The date is never fixed, but usually it is the last weekend of the month. Also Tbilisi Fashion Week is also taking place in October, so if you are into interesting trends, subscribe to their page and follow the announcements!
Winter is still not here! Come explore cave town of Uplistsikhe or enjoy the weather in Sighnaghi, town of love, which looks very cute.
You can feel that New Year festivities are approaching in the second half of the month, but before it really feels like autumn. You can go to the typical sulfur baths of Tbilisi, check out the beautiful Marionette Theater or Movement Theater, explore the courtyards of the Old Tbilisi or still take a pre-New Year trip to Batumi to enjoy the winter sea and visit the subtropical areas in the Botanical Garden.
