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 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. Just keep in mind your ad won´t appear immediately, no need to resubmit the form, just give me a day or two :)
Who am I: Hello, we are Ahmed and Chris, met in Tbilisi at a guesthouse two weeks ago and have been traveling throughout Western Georgia with our rented Toyota Rav4 (4x4). Originally we were three people (an Egyptian girl), but she went home to work, and so now we have plenty of space for 2 more interesting individuals with an adventurous spirit and a taste for good wine to explore the regions to the North, (including up the military road and surrounding areas and the Abano Pass), East, and South-East of Tbilisi for a few weeks. We love hiking also and have been stopping everywhere along the way so far to hike the mountains. We also have 3 tents with us and the car actually seats 5 with a huge trunk, but with 4 people it is spacious. We will be in Tbilisi again in 2 days (Sept 19) and could pick you up there. Shared Car expenses per peson would be 30 Lari / day / person + shared gas. Cheers :)

Who am I: Hey everyone, I'm Werner! 👋 I'm a 38 year-old South African digital nomad, very excited to be heading to Georgia from mid Sept until early Oct. I'm planning on doing ~8 days hiking, starting in Chuberi (close to Zugdidi) and then on to the Mesti -Ushguli trek (a mix of tented camping and village stays). Friends will describe me as open-minded, extroverted, outdoorsy and, well, fun 😋 I'm an independent traveler, so not really looking for companionship for the entire route, but if you'd like to meet up for a section of the hike (or a beer or a bite before or after) let me know, interesting people are always welcome! 😁 Oh, I'm also a paragliding pilot and will take a separate trip up to go hike and fly around Gudauri for a week to ten days. Being in my late thirties (and in a more financially stable phase of life), I prioritise my time over penny pinching, so I'm considering renting private cars and drivers for drop-offs/returns (or rent and self-drive to Gudauri). I'm happy to offer discounted/free rides to students, volunteers, and people others otherwise in a tight spot, should there be space and our timelines and personalities match. English/Afrikaans (10/10), Dutch (6/10), Chinese (5/10), Spanish (3/10) with stories collected over many years and continents.
When do I visit: Sept 11-30
Who am I looking for: Interesting people and those who can bring an interesting perspective and meaningful conversation (and good music playlists for road trips) 😁 If you take issue with progressive matters or suffer from (even a mild case of) homophobia, racism, anti-feminsm or similar things, we probably won't make be the best hiking, drinking, or traveling friends.

Who am I: Hi, My name is Peter and I'm going to hike in Georgia since about 12th September. I have 2 weeks, so I think I can do 2 longer routes, might be in different groups :) I would really appreciate high trails near GMRoad, but also long treks in Svaneti would be nice. I'm quite fit and have some experience in living in a tent and hiking mountains, but sure there's still a lot to learn. I'm 21 and live in Warsaw, Poland.
When do I visit: 12-23.09
