Mitarbi is a mountain resort located a mere 4km from its big sister, Bakuriani. Here, you’ll find quieter, more preserved slopes, and a handful of hotels and guest houses. Why not pair your trip to Bakuriani with a visit to Mitarbi, too? The unspoiled slopes are a real treat!
Far away from the aforementioned Georgian ski resorts, located in the north-western most tip of Georgia, lies the region of Svaneti.
