10 Days


May - Sep






Credit Card, Wire Transfer and more!


This 10-day Mount Kazbek (North Route) ski mountaineering expedition is the perfect combination of hard climbing and fun skiing!

Mount Kazbek (5033 m) is a volcano located on the border between Georgia and Russia. It's one of the highest peaks in the Caucasus and it can be climbed by the Russian north side or the Georgian south one.

I'll pick you up in Vladikavkaz airport and drive 100 km to Tmenikau village. From here we'll make a first easy hike to the Base Camp and the next days we'll ascent to the following two camps. Then we'll rest for a day to acclimatize our bodies and be strong for the summit attempt. I always leave an extra day in case of bad weather or any inconvenience in the way up.

An extra feature that you'll love is that the Base Camp is near 2 natural hot springs with baths that you'll be able to use to relax your body before and after the ascent!

So please contact me if you wish to experience this 10-day Mount Kazbek (North Route) ski mountaineering expedition. I promise it will be an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life. 

And if you want to check how to climb it from the south side, take a look of my 12-day Mount Dykh-Tau ascent.

Mountain Guide

Originally I'm from Altai, a little-known Siberian mountain region. I grew up and developed as a sportsmen and guide in Altai and the Tian-Shan mountains. Since 2010, I live in St. Petersburg and work a lot in the Caucasus region.

Since 2011 I am learning in the Rus­si­an Moun­tain Guides As­so­ci­ation (RMGA), under auspices of the As­so­ci­ation of Ca­na­dian Moun­tain Guides (ACMG). In 2015 I passed the Ap­pren­tice Ski Guide exam.

My main work des­tin­a­tions are Russian and CIS mountain regions as Altai, Khibiny, Tian-Shan, Kamchatka and all Caucasus. I specialize in ski tour and climbing projects in uncommon mountain regions of Russia and CIS.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
