Description

Join me on this thrilling and adventurous 7-days of ski mountaineering in Mount Kazbek, and we will see and experience some of the most dramatic and beautiful scenery that Georgia has to offer, as we traipse and travail around the massive slopes, taking in the sweeping panoramic views of the mountain and the surrounding countryside.

Mount Kazbek (5,033m) is a dormant volcano located in the Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia, and is the 3-rd highest peak in the country. The area surrounding the mountain is Kazbegi nature reserve, ensuring the both the mountain and nature reserve attract outdoor activity enthusiasts all-year-round.

Our trip begins when we meet in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia, on day 1, where we will sightsee and prepare for the adventure ahead.

On day 2 we transfer to Stephantsminda, before we start the ski touring on day 3.

Over the subsequent 4 days we will be incrementally ski touring our way up the mountain, with in-built rest and acclimatization periods in order to stave off the effects of high altitude.

Day 6 is the focal point and undoubted highlight of the trip, as we head to the summit of Mt. Kazbek, with approximately 10 hours of ski touring to get there.

The views from the summit are truly special, with seemingly the whole Caucasus and Georgian countryside stretching out beneath us, making for an absolutely breathtaking sight.

We finish our trip by skiing down the mountain and heading back to Tbilisi, where we say our goodbyes, hopefully having made you fall in love with this part of the world and want to return.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
