Top Mountaineering Trips in Georgia
Snow-crowned summits blanket the Caucasus of Georgia. The piercing spires break the clouds that hang low, forming incredible scenes of nature. Climb in the UNESCO-listed region of Svaneti, or conquer the crown of the Caucasus, Mount Kazbek. Endless rolling mountains guarantee quality experiences. Visit in the summer months between June and September for prime mountaineering conditions.
Located in the Caucasus region in Eurasia, lying between Europe and Asia, the country of Georgia is an important area at the crossroads of various cultures. It is bordered to the north by Russia, to the southeast by Azerbaijan, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the west by the Black Sea. After an early period of unification, the borders of Georgia passed through the hands of various regional powers, including the Mongols, the Ottoman Empire, Iran and Russia.
The climate of Georgia is diverse, influenced by subtropical trends from the west, and continental trends from the east. The west of the country has high humidity and heavy rainfall, with fluctuations between 5°C and 22°C. In the east, temperatures range between 2°C and 24 °C.
Visit between June and September.
(1) We are all very happy with the experience. Everyone got a real feeling to at least some of the mountaineering life aspect. (2) Guides were all great and we had a great time + learned quite a bit in a very short time. (3) We got as far as each of us could this time. One of us reached the summit – others had to stop at different stages – but that is all part of the adventure. Overall very happy and definitely see a value in a service like Explore-Share.
Ilia was a wonderful mountaineering guide 🙂
I can’t wait to climb again with him next year ! JL
We had a marvellous journey with Ilia. He managed everything from airport to airport. As part of being a wonderful guide with a lot of knowledge about his country and his nature he is also a very kind person to deal with. The Kazbek ascend is a beautiful trip, I recommend to every mountain lover. The region, the mountain, the food and the kindness of the people makes it perfect.
We had the chance to climb Mount Kazbek in Georgia last July under a wonderful weather. It was a real pleasure to make this tour with Ilia, who was extremely professional, efficient and safety-driven all along the journey. It was also very pleasant to discuss with him to discover more about Georgia and the surroundings
… Although we didn’t achieve what we intended to (due to limited time we had in Georgia and bad weather), we were happy. It was one of the most amazing experiences we had so far and without a shadow of a doubt, we will come back to complete our mission. We will climb the giant of dreams. If you are looking for an incredible, experienced guide, contact Explore Share and ask for Ilia. He studied mount climbing at university and he certainly knows his stuff.
The trip was great thanks and Ilia was amazing! Such a competent and knowledgeable guide. We actually got caught in white out blizzard near the summit and he led us out with great confidence. I would highly recommend him as a guide and he was great company to boot!
I spent 4 amazing days with Ilia, the most skilful, experienced, adorable guide. He showed me many different places in Mtskheta-Mtianeti région. From Snow to rocks, we fully benefit the Caucasus mountains. It was an unforgettable experience !
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
