Best time of year to visit Georgia

Generally speaking, the best time to visit Georgia runs from June through October. June brings a true summer spirit to the country: all the activities like hiking, rafting, paragliding, and fishing revive, and fruit like cherry plum, kiwi, mulberry, apricots, and loquat are in season. June–September is a perfect time to combine mountain trekking with a beach vacation. September is a ‘golden’ season when it’s still warm enough for summer activities, yet there is already autumn charm with Rtveli. Winter months have some magic atmosphere: late December–early January are all about Christmas traditions, skiing, and sweet gozinaki and tangerines.
