People sometimes ask me if they could join my group or "tour". That's understandable. Hiking alone is not for everybody, it's more dangerous and ... well... lonely. But 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 ad here. Other visitors will then be able to contact you through the contact form
Who am I: Hey - I'm Urdax, 30 year old Spaniard. I have travelled extensively and I'm in relatively good shape, so you won't have to carry me around ;). I'm just not a mountain or camping expert! My plan? The 'classic' Mestia to Ushguli to start with, and whichever treks I can do either before or after this one. Exact dates of my trip are August 9th evening to 19th afternoon (Kutaisi airport). Other than Tbilisi, I want to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
When do I visit: August 11 - 17 (+/- 1 day)
Who am I looking for: Ideally, I'm just looking for someone with more mountain experience than myself. I'm quite uncomplicated and will adapt to the sleeping style - renting tent if necessary. Happy to help carrying equipment and split transportation costs.
Who am I: Hey, keen for the Mestina to Ushguli trek next week. I have a 2 man hiking tent so was hoping to do mainly camping and then eat at the villages. I have only done a few overnight hikes (not in the mountains) but I have done many mountain day hikes so feel like I am fit enough.
When do I visit: 16th - 30th July
Who am I looking for: Looking for someone who is friends and happy to have a good chat but also someone who likes silence as well! Let me know if you are interesting and let's hike together!

Who am I: Hi everyone, My name is Lorette I am 28 years old and I am from the Netherlands. My plan is to travel through Eastern Europe the upcomping weeks (July till half of August). When I started reading about Georgia I felt a big desire to go their especially for hiking. Now I only did some hiking in New Zealand last year, so I am not really experienced and I think I am also not the best navigator. So a buddy would be great to make it a bit more comfortable and hopefully especially more fun. I would love to bring my campinggear and go for some multidaytreks. A bit more about me: open minded, mostly calm, but I can be really enthousiastic as well, a bit chaotic. I study psychology, I love art, I eat vegan.
When do I visit: July and or August (max till 15th)
Who am I looking for: A buddy for hiking. An open minded person.

Mountains have always been a big part of my life and I am used to multiple-day treks, as well as short ones. I'm open to any kind of suggestion. I never do strict planning as most of the time my plans don't work out. I'm more of a wing-it kinda guy. I'm perfectly fine with camping and I might bring a 2-3 person tent, although not sure yet.
When do I visit: I'll be in Georgia at the end of July but I want to spend some time at the seaside first. I'll be heading north somewhere at the beginning to mid August.
Who am I looking for: Literally anyone. As long as you don't have a stick up your butthole.

Who am I looking for: I was hoping to hike in Armenia with a friend who can no longer make it. The routes we were looking at were too challenging of a hike for me to want to do it alone, but maybe there is someone else who will be in the Caucasus during July who would like to team up? I have some backpacking experience in remote areas, but this is unfamiliar territory to me, and perhaps I'm not in the best shape after a year of sitting in a lecture room! Please get in touch if you will be around Georgia or Armenia in July and would like to go on short or multi day hikes, maybe our plans will coincide
Who am I: I am an aspiring Kartveli-phile. I am interested in visiting glaciers, and summits have an allure, too. I lack high alpine experience, but I am solid for days with a backpack. I am travelling solo, with a plan to visit Tblisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, with nature hikes and treks in between.
When do I visit: End of VI, certainly VII, maybe into VIII, 2019

Who am I looking for: A small group looking for more people interested in going up Mt Tetnuldi (4858m) in the Mestia region this summer. It's a less well trekked mountain, and so going up with more people sounds like a safer strategy. Give me a shout if you are interested in joining! Give me a shout if you've done before and have any advice! Thanks
Who am I: My name is Rebecca and I am an opera singer and passionate backpacker! I have dreamed of trekking in Georgia for a long time, and a friend just bailed on travelling with me. I don't really want to hike alone, so I am very much hoping to make new friends. I value good humour in hiking, and I travel on a tight budget! I would happily do any multi-day trek - it seems to me there are no poor choices. I am 25, decently fit with a fair amount of backpacking experience, and I really enjoy travelling with others of all ages. Please send me a message if you plan to be in Georgia in August!
