Description

Gudauri ski resort is the main ski resort of Georgia and is situated on the southern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains at an altitude of 2,000m. About 2 hours from Tbilisi international airport, Guadauri sits in the centre of a spectacular landscape offering expansive snow fields, alpine forest and abundant sunshine.

On your first day you will arrive to Tbilisi International Airport where you will collected and transferred to the hotel 110km away, about a 2 hour minibus ride. The second to seventh days you will be out off-piste skiing and ski touring around Gudauri. There will be 1-2 hours maximum of skinning from the station ski lifts to access points of our descents.

Each day I will decide the programme depending on the weather, snow conditions and fitness level of the group members. On the eighth day you will be transferred in the morning to Tbilisi city where dinner will be provided along with accommodation in a hotel in the old centre of Tbilisi. On the ninth day you will be taken to the airport in time for your flight to your final destination.

From Gudauri there are ski lifts to the summit of 3300m and there are fantastic views of nearby Mt Kazbek which peaks at 5033m. This resort has many great possibilities for off-piste skiing and ski trekking using a combination of ski lifts and skins.

A wonderful aspect to this location is the fact that the locals almost never go off-piste or ski-touring which means the terrain offers vast areas of virgin snow and unrestricted tracks.

Additionally, depending on the weather and snow conditions, we can take a minibus to other parts of the valleys and discover typical villages that have managed to preserve their traditional cultures. We can also find here new opportunities for ski touring or heli-skiing.

This is a truly unique location to experience fluffy deep snow, traditional cultures and virgin snow fields. Sign up now and I’ll be waiting to get you out on the mountain!

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
