Enjoy a 1-week Mestia heli-ski / heli-board holiday in Georgia!

Experience the allure of Mestia, often hailed as the “New Chamonix” by mountain travellers—a comparison that couldn’t be more fitting. Picture Chamonix in the early 20th century, and you’ll begin to grasp the essence of Mestia. Nestled at an altitude of 1500 meters, Mestia finds itself enveloped by towering peaks that rise above even Mont Blanc’s majestic heights.

Nestled within the Georgian province of Svaneti, amidst the awe-inspiring Caucasus Mountains, Mestia is a sight to behold. Mestia is the high-altitude settlement in the centre of Svanti In fact, four of the ten highest peaks in the Caucasus call this region home, including Georgia’s tallest mountain, Mount Shkhara, soaring to an astounding 5,201 meters. As you explore the surrounding playground, you’ll encounter Tetnuldi at 4,974 meters, Mount Ushba at 4,710 meters, Ailama at 4,525 meters, and Shota Rustaveli at 4,960 meters. Ushba and Tetnuldi cast their imposing shadows over Mestia like regal deities.

Mestia stands as the bustling hub of Svaneti province, a role it has played for centuries despite its modest size. With a rich cultural heritage, this town boasts numerous medieval treasures, including churches and forts, earning it a well-deserved spot on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. The town is adorned with medieval towers, and its remarkable museum, once the residence of the renowned climber Mikhail Khergiani, is a must-visit.

Beyond its cultural richness, Mestia boasts a vibrant nightlife scene that beckons mountain enthusiasts from across the globe. Unique bars and restaurants dot the town, and the evenings come alive with live traditional music. International groups, guided by locals, come together to celebrate the week’s or day’s achievements, making Mestia an undiscovered gem waiting to be explored.
