Journey into four seasons of the year
 
2/3 territory of Georgia is mountainous, lots of peaks have altitude more than 5 000 meters above the sea level and they are covered permanently by snow and ice. Country is divided into two completely different: subtropical climatic zone on the Black sea coast and continental climatic zone on the East. During this trip you will travel within all four seasons of the year almost at once, in a short succession: if you pick a fruit in the valleys, you will see its blossom in a sub alpine zone, make snowballs in the mountains and at the same day go to swim in the Black Sea coast. This tour gives you a unique chance to enjoy all seasons in one trip
