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: Just arrived in Mestia July 23-July 28. Interested in some day hikes around the place.
When do I visit: July 23-28
Who am I looking for: Looking for some hike buddy.
Who am I: I’m Renata, 31 yrs old from Czech republic but I currently live in Italy. I speak French, Italian, English and Czech (ordered by my preferences ;-) ) I will be coming to Georgia at the beginning of August with my friend who will abandon me on the 10th of August and I will stay for another week or two to discover more of the country. I would preferably like to do a long trek (at least for 5 days) but I don't have any concrete plan yet and I’m very much used to improvise and adapt to the situation. I’ve already done few multi-day treks in the past, among which Haute route des Pyrénées, Zanskar Valley.... (bloody long, shortened - J.). I also climb if there is an opportunity to climb some of the Caucasus peeks (probably with a guide as I’m not experienced enough in mountaineering and will not bring climbing gear with me).
When do I visit: 10th of August - 27th of August
Who am I looking for: Adventurous person that would keep me company, the age or the gender doesn’t matter, just a positive spirit, open mind, curiosity but also the capacity to deal with unexpected situations and improvise when needed.

Kazbek however I did not found guided tour suitable for my dates, I a bit of rock climbing experience in the French Alps, few 3k peaks and done lots of hiking in the Swiss Alps.

Who am I: Hi everyone. My name is Dan and I'm from England. Im hoping to do some hiking in both Svaneti (mestia to ushguli) and Tusheti (possibly khevsureti to Tusheti) in July or August.

Who am I: Hi there! This is Marcos, 30, from Barcelona, Spain! I'll spending the first 3 weeks of August in Georgia and even though I like improvising and don't have any established itinerary, I want to spend most of my time there hiking. I have experience on the complete Annapurna Circuit, the 1k+ km of the Northern Route of the Way of Saint James and some circuits in the Pyrenees, but not on ice nor using crampons and piolet. I have traveled several times and for long periods by myself and ventured to 2k-3k m high areas alone, but I do appreciate a travel companion in the mountains for extra safety (and extra fun, sure!).

Who am I: Hello! I'm Tomer, an Israeli living in London for the past 8 years. I've hiked the Tour du Mont Blanc (11 days) and the Slovenian Alps (5 days) and planning my next hike from Mestia to Ushguli (an extended version that I am building via Koomoot tool that will make up about 7-8 days of hike). I am looking for a partner to join me as my friend found out he can't make it. About me: 33 years old, massage therapist and a physiotherapy student, easy going, funny, and a bit foolish from time to time :D When I travel, I care much more about embracing the scinery and enjoy the trail rather than finishing it as quickly as possible for the challenge.
When do I visit: August 2021
Who am I looking for: Anyone with a fun personality, near my age, who wants to part with me in the adventure, enjoy the journey together and share the experience :)
Who am I: I'm looking for a partner in July-August 2021 (and perhaps later as well) for a variety of treks, ranging from day hikes in the vicinity of Tbilisi (there are quite a few canyons, waterfalls and old citadels there not covered in guidebooks) to longer jaunts, such as the trail from Shatili to Dartlo/Omalo. Other plans will come up, too, I have unlimited time, technically. I'm a pretty experienced hiker, 25 years on the road, walked just about every type of terrain, from African deserts to Himalayan permafrost, but I'm not into purely sportive achievements, like in serious mountaineering - i go for the views, the ambiance, and the photographs (i'm a professional photographer). Come along if you have similar attitude!
When do I visit: Already here, for indefinite time.
