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 guys!! I'm Stephanie, from Québec, Canada. I'm looking for a partner to do the trek to Tobavarchkhili lakes, which is in autonomy and in pure nature. I'm an experienced outdoor person, i just come from 10 days trekking (Juta to Rushka, and straight away to number 7 and 2 in the 10 best trek list :p), i've got all my gear to do it alone, but it is still more secure to be two, and also more fun to share good laugh along the way! I'm thinking about 7 or 8th september as a starting date, leaving from Tbilisi. I'm flexible for the date, fews days earlier or later. So, if that plan sounds intersting, don't be shy to write to me! Cheers, Steph

Who am I: Hey, I'm Mandy, German and 40 years old. I am already in Georgia, Mestia and will stay in the country for two or three months. In 2017 I was the first time here with a friend and we wanted to hike the Omalo - Shatili Treck. But it turned out differently. Some Georgians had taken us on their horses... It was really incredible and I fell in love with Georgia! :) This year I would like to hike this route and further to Juta ... or maybe in the other direction, because I'll like to stay in Dartlo (near Omalo) for a few days, at the end of this tour. For this I'm looking for a hiking budy. I often do day hikes, but have little experience with multi-day tours. I have some equipment. Also a 2 person tent, but it's a bit older and not so light... If you have a better one, it will be fine ... And I'm a bit scared of dogs. What isn't so good for the Tusheti region. So I think it will be really good if you not have the same problem and know how to handle dogs... :)
When do I visit: August, September
Who am I looking for: Single person or little group to hike Juta-Shatili-Omalo
