Enjoy a week long ascent of one of the most impressive mountains in the Caucasus, Mount Kazbek, with certified guide Vadym.
For 7 amazing days, one of which is a reserve day in case of bad weather or insufficient acclimatization, you will get to scale Mount Kazbek. However, that is not the only peak you will get to climb on this mountaineering adventure. You will also get to climb one of the nearby 3,500 metre summits for training and acclimatization purposes, as well as Mount Ortsveri (4,200m). Also add on the time you spend in Stepantsminda, the Sabertse Pass (3,000m), the Betlemi hut (3,653m) and the 7 kilometre long Gergeti glacier, and you end up with an unforgettable trip.
Located on the border between Russia and Georgia, Mount Kazbek is widely considered to be one of the most impressive mountains in the Caucasus. The mountain looms large and majestic. And when you reach its summit, you will have the opportunity to enjoy some breathtaking views.
As is the case with any 5,000 metre plus mountain, climbing Mount Kazbek can be arduous. As a result, participants should be in good enough physical condition to make the climb. Some prior experience is important as well.
To reach the summit of Mount Kazbek is a great achievement. And I would be happy to help you in that pursuit. So if you would like to join me on this expedition, just send me a request.
Would you like to climb to the summit of another great peak in the Caucasus? Then join me on this week long climb to the top of Mount Tetnuldi in Georgia.
After arriving at Tblisi airport, we will go to Stepmantsminda. From there, we will hike to the Sabertse Pass (3,000m), where we will spend the night in a tent.
For the purposes of acclimatization, we will climb one of the nearby 3,500 metre peaks before spending the night in a guesthouse.
Today we will take a transfer to an altitude of 2,100 metres. From there, we will trek to the Betlemi hut. We will either spend the night in the hut or a tent.
Today we will climb to the summit of Mount Ortsveri after ice climbing training on the Gergeti glacier. We will spend the night either in the Betlemi hut or in a tent.
We will climb to the summit of Mount Kazbek and then return to Stepantsminda, where we will spend the night in a guesthouse.
Guesthouse in Stepantsminda during acclimatization period, Betlemi hut and tents during the ascent.
Participants must bring proper mountaineering clothing.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
