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: Hi, we are a couple of Italians with experience in trekking abroad. We live in Italy and we are planning a holiday week. We would like to make the 'Svaneti Trekking Tour', Mestia to Ushguli.
When do I visit: Week 15th August to 19th August 2022
Who am I looking for: We are looking for people to share this experience (sharing also a private marshrutka from Tbilisi to Mestia ;-)
Who am I: Gamarjoba! My name is Lieke and I'm 24 years old. I currently live in Tbilisi where I work as a volunteer. As The Netherlands is an extremely flat country, I want to spend my weekends here hiking in Georgia's beautiful mountains. Because of this flat country situation, I do not have very extensive hiking experience (yet) and I am interested in doing hikes that will not be too hard. I speak Dutch, English and little bit of Russian and Italian. Furthermore, I enjoy reading, travelling and philosophy.
When do I visit: May until about August 20.
Who am I looking for: A hiking buddy or someone who would love to go sightseeing
Who am I: Hi! I'm Robbie and will be visiting Georgia this month (May'22). I live in Berlin but am from California. I'm looking for a buddy to do the 4 day Mestia to Ushguli hike with. I've only done day hikes in the past, so this will be my longest trek yet! Just fyi.
When do I visit: May 2022
Who am I looking for: Nice people
Who am I: Hi i'm Ahmed i'm 26 yo , and i'm writing from Canada. I plan to visit Georgia in late August into early September to do some multi-day-hiking (4-5 days). I play a lot of sports and I do run track, so i'm relatively fit (I think). I'm introverted (and usually spend a lot of time in my own head/with a book or writing) but I do enjoy sharing meaningful conversations from time to time. I usually travel solo to explore other regions (Senegal, Philipines, Mali, Kyrgyzstan) by doing day treks mostly around their various villages. I haven't really done much multi day hiking/camping (in my part of the world my options are limited). So I'd like to take this opportunity to visit Georgia and hike a multi-day route together with someone who has a little more experience multi-day hiking. I'm hoping to find another person like myself who is comfortable with quietness, has experience doing multi day hikes (so I can learn a bit more :-) ) and enjoys an occasional conversation. reach out directly: https://www.instagram.com/ahmetthepoet/
When do I visit: Late August, early September
Who am I looking for: Someone who like myself, enjoys the solitude of nature, but doesn't mind having an extra companion to hike with from time to time :-)
Who am I: I love hiking, I was scouts for 12 years. I often hike and camp on my own, I've done Camino de Santiago, and hiked in Poland, Morocco, Portugal, Switzerland, France, Spain.
When do I visit: First two weeks of June
Who am I looking for: I'm looking for someone to join me on my hike in Georgia, I still don't know where to go but I would like to hike around 10-12 days. Usually I walk 15-25km per day, depending on the day.
Who am I: Hi, I am 28 yo, from Greece. I want to visit Georgia on June for a 3-5 day ascent or trek (there is a slight chance to be available on September as well). I was thinking something like climbing mt Laila. I am generally open to suggestions and i don't mind trying something harder (eg mt Tetnuldi) or joining in a 4-5 day trek.
When do I visit: June or September
Who am I looking for: Climbing or Trekking buddy as well as someone to do some sightseeing
Who am I: Hi everybody, Im 23 old student who come to Georgia for one semester. I will be staying here till the middle of July. I'm looking for hiking buddies. I love hiking and I hike for about 10-11 years. In the case of trecking, I was mostly staying in cottages or hostels down in walleyes, not camping, but that can change :D Usually, I hike around 17-25 km in one day - depending on the altitude (and attitude :P). I would love to do some nice hikes here in Georgia - usually during weekdays, but workdays are fine as well. I speak English, Russian, and Slovak - my beloved home country Slovakia :D I have a driving license, but the last time I was driving was when I was getting my driving license. So... Me as a driver - that's on your own risk :D :D Btw. On the pic y can see Slovak national park Low Tatras - strongly recommend :D
When do I visit: From March till middle of July
Who am I looking for: Hiking buddy
Who am I: Hello, I`m Bahram from Iran, I study in Georgia, I`m 33 years old, until now haven't got time to discover beautiful Georgia, this summer around 10th of July I have decided to start from Mukhuri to Tobavarchkhili lake ( the most beautiful rout as I have searched and heard), also I have plans for surprising the one I love on her birthday, unfortunately she is not gonna be with me during the mentioned time and I`m trying to create some memorable moments, I`m not gonna go in details since its totally personal but as a memory you can find a red rose pot and plant it with me near the lake ( definitely its optional :)) as far as I have informed the way to the lake is gonna take a few days, I`m looking forward for friends who are eager to spend this time together, I`m flexible, not talkative ( mostly I try to enjoy the nature and its beauty) I may decide to stay more days in places which has a great whether specially in the final destination ( Tobavarchkhili lake) so, I`m not in rush. wish you all joyful moments.
