As Goderdzi develops further, the summer time offer will be expanded to include conference facilities, festivals and a mountain-top lookout & restaurant. A refuge for orphaned or rescued bears and other native wildlife will provide a unique family attraction and educational asset. Extensive hiking and trail networks will provide recreation for families, while mountain-biking, paragliding and an alpine luge will offer thrills for the more adventurous. The animated village core will ensure that there is a clear destination for summer visitors, and this lively center filled with shops, restaurants and cafes, will become an attraction in it’s own right.
