    I am happy to invite you to this amazing hike in the Caucasus Mountains, the largest and highest mountain area in Europe!

    Come and join me in this amazing trekking adventure through the Caucasus Mountains, just in the middle of the Black and the Caspian Seas.

    Unlike in the Alps, in the Caucasus Mountains you will have a feeling of treading on an absolutely remote and unknown land. That is what makes this trip a unique experience.

    The chosen place will be the Bezengi valley, surrounded by an incredible wild environment far from the urbanity. Many people say that this is the most spectacular trekking spot in the Caucasus Mountains. The scenery shows high peaks around, some of them over 5000 meters of altitude, as well as impressive glaciers.

    The trailhead will be the Bezengi Camp at 2000m. It is a place with all the services and facilities you can imagine: hospitality, local cuisine, pub, warm wooded houses and a relaxing sauna. From there I will guide you through green moraines with the most outstanding views around us.

    After entering the depth of the valley, we will find one of the most incredible places of the Caucasus Mountains: the Bezegi Wall. It is 12 km long rocky barrier sharper than a knife.

    Regarding our campsites, during the trek we will rest in tents in really charming places. We’ll spend incredible nights in the middle of lush greenery or by the side of some turquoise lagoons.

    For those in search of a bigger challenge I can also offer some summit attempts (in easy peaks). The prices of this trekking expedition will vary according to your individual needs and expectations.

    So, get in touch with me for further information or if you want to continue with the reservation process. It will be my please to lead this hiking adventure in the heart of the Caucasus Mountains.

      About the Guide

       
       

      I am a fully certified IFMGA guide since 2012. I have, however, mastered my climbing and skiing skills for many years before taking up guiding. I have participated in numerous climbing expeditions not only to the wild mountains of Caucasus (which I have gotten to know pretty well), but also to Nepal, Alps and have extensively climbed in many Norwegian areas. In recent years I have been resident in Norway, and I co-operate with my friends at Lyngen Outdoor Center as their chief mountain guide.

      Sublime experience ! Although the beauty had been well telegraphed by my predecessor friends, I was still astonished by the beauty of the pristine landscape and nature. Facing a slope covered in snow while being surrounded by fjords is the best combination of colors and drasticity at the same time. The local team headed by Artur is exceptionally efficient, always coordinated night and day, and very competent. The fact that Artur lives on site is particularly helpful.  A couple of notes to future visitors: (1) always go where Artur tells you (he knows where the good spots, finessed based on the local conditions), and (2) go with the boat and dingy, and start the ascent from the beach, at least once on your stay.  Our guide David Pellissier from Aosta was a great resource and companion: very safe, straight-shooter, and always tuned to the group\'s wishes and pace.

      Competent, chilled and very nice guide who makes sure you get the trip that suits you. He was very patient and gave very valuable tips after each climb. I\'ll definitely consider him should I go ice climbing in Norway again!
