Join IFMGA-certified mountain guide Petr on this unique ski and snowboarding week in the Caucasus Mountains in Abkhazia, starting from Russia.
Jan, Feb, Mar
I invite you to join me on a ski and splitboard touring week in the Caucasus Mountains of Abkhazia, located in South Caucasus, on the eastern coast of the Black Sea. We will meet in Russia on the first day and from there we will cross the border to Abkhazia.
Together we will plunge into the nature of winter in this territory, trying national cuisine and enjoying the soft Black Sea climate with lots of snow in the spectacular Caucasus Mountains.
During this week, I will share my experience and knowledge with you, regarding avalanche safety, mountaineering techniques and skiing. Together we will find the best slopes and snow, enjoying exciting lines. The difficulty of the tours will depend on the skill level of the participants.
This program is suitable for both beginners and experienced riders, because of the the wide variety of slopes, of different complexity and length, around our base during the trip. Of course all participants must have off-piste skills.
We will be staying in comfortable huts located in the mountains. The solitude and remoteness of the place will allow you to relax from the hustle and bustle of the city life. We will spend time surrounded by nature away from civilization. Amazing sea climate with lots of snow will give you the chance to enjoy unforgettable rides.
If you find this proposal tempting, just contact me and book your trip! Come join me for a unique ski and splitboard touring week in the Caucasus Mountains.

I am an IFMGA-certified guide and a KMGA avalanche expert. I have skied and climbed in different mountain regions of Russia, Asia and Europe.
I was an athlete skier and climber until I finished my career at the medical academy and got a job as medicine doctor. But after a few years working at the hospital, my love for the mountains prevailed and I have spent the last few years working in the avalanche service of Krasnaya Polyana and guiding. In addition, I finished my education as a guide, passed the exams and got a certificate as an IFMGA guide.
It will be a great pleasure for me to guide and assist you on hiking, mountaineering, climbing or skiing tours in different regions of Russia, Georgia and Kirgizstan.

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 !"
