People sometimes write me that they are coming to Georgia alone and would like to hike. And if they could join my group or "my tour". That's understandable.
Hiking alone is not for everybody as it's more dangerous and ... well... lonely. But I don't do any tours, I am happy if I make it to Georgia for a few weeks in summer and always already have a group.
So, let's try something. If you are looking for a trekking partner, please fill in the form below and I will post yours advertisement here.
Other visitors will then be able to contact you directly through the contact form - they will not see yours e-mail address so it will be up to you if you reply or not.
At least that's my idea. Not sure if I already have critical mass of visitors to make it work, but it may be worth a try :P

I am interested in hikers who would like to do 3-5 day stretches and camping by tents. I am also aiming to do tough hikes, with high elevation and long distance. However, I am of course open to day hikes and smaller overnights but in the 3 weeks I am there I would like to do some longer stretches. Obviously some 1-2 night breaks in the city are going be much welcomed; I would just like to hike enough to earn a night on the bed. Please email me if you are interesting in figuring out some backcountry adventures together, with nothing but our heavy backpacks and the Caucasus mountains.

Who am I: 46, resident hiker/trekker/climber. I have been Tbilisi-based since Autumn 2016 and much of it was well-spent somewhere outside. So I have fairly good idea what's out there and pretty long and growing bucket list. And I plan to stick around for foreseeable future. If phrase 'Hey, it looks like it could be a trail! Wonder where it goes?' sounds like a start of something exciting, I am your man. Off-trail or moderately technical stuff is ok :) If I cannot come with you I will still gladly have a bottle of wine with you and can give bunch of good advice.
When do I visit: Permanently here
Who am I looking for: Good company for some of my longer projects in Svaneti and Tusheti/Khevsureti would be perfect. But I am always happy to go for some weekend/prolonged weekend trek either by my own plan or yours. And if all else fails I will pretty much always find the free evening for a pub crawl in Tbilisi ;)

That being said, I'm open to just taking it easy and enjoying nature, but I'm also open to getting out and going on some seriously grueling adventures!
When do I visit: September 2017 - June 2018
