The Caucasus mountain ranges also serve as a cover for the cold air from Siberia, and therefore when traveling to the Caucasus you will experience subtropical climate in the low-lying areas. In Georgia you will experience a climate that is warmer than the Danish. In the summer months, the country reaches an average of 27-31 degrees and a maximum of 6-7 degrees in the winter months.
