  • Hiking in Tusheti, Georgia's most remote and serene high-mountain region

    Hiking in Tusheti, Georgia's most remote and serene high-mountain region. Tucked away in the Caucasus in Georgia's far northeast-corner, Tusheti offers some of the country's most picturesque and pristine high-mountain regions. It combines visits of traditional Tush villages with some spectacular trekking. Nakaicho pass at 2920m offers some of the best views you can find in Tusheti. The road to Tusheti is opened only 5 months of the year, usually in May, when a bulldozer clears the path and Tush shepherds herd their flocks of sheep through the Abano Pass to summer pastures in the mountains. They are followed by hikers willing to experience the remoteness along with Georgians from the lowlands here to "reconnect" with their ancient homeland. The scenery everywhere is a spectacular mix of snow-covered rocky peaks, deep gorges, tower-dotted villages and steep, grassy meadows. Centuries-old koshkebi (defence towers) still stand in the villages as well as evidence of Tusheti's old animist religion in the form of stone shrines called khatebi. Then in the autumn shepherds drive their flocks back to the lowlands, the snow returns, the road is blocked and Tusheti falls into its winter sleep again. We finish our trip with a day and night in Tbilisi, the most charming Caucasian capital. The trip is graded moderate and is suitable for hikers with appropriate fitness levels to walk in mountainous terrain up to 3000 metres, for a minimum of 6 hours a day for multiple days carrying a day pack.

  • August Bank Holiday. The Scramblers' National 3 Peaks In 3 Days

    Coventry Rail Station

    £425.00

    August Bank Holiday. The Scramblers' National 3 Peaks In 3 Days Deposit £125 on RSVP This one is for the fit hillwalkers amongst you who fancy a high-intensity challenge with a head for heights! We'll be taking a completely different approach to the UK's three highest peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. Instead of the traditional 24-hour race against the clock, we'll be going at a slower pace over 3 days but with a twist as we'll be scrambling up these iconic mountains. Ben Nevis by the Carn Mor Dearg Arete is the finest way to climb the UK's highest mountain. This is a truly spectacular route incorporating 2 Munros and will live long in the memory. Scafell Pike is iconic, not only because it is the highest in England, but also because of its history, position and astonishing views. Alfred Wainwright described it as "the Mecca of all weary pilgrims in Lakeland......the ultimate, the supreme, the top of Scafell Pike". We'll hike to the summit of Scafell Pike via the lesser known Corridor route thus avoiding the crowds on the Wasdale side. And finally to Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, where there are a few scrambling options but the standout winner is the knife-edge ridge of Crib Goch from Pen y Pass. These routes are MUCH tougher than the regular routes and you will need to be fit hillwalkers to complete the challenge. Our client to guide ratio for scrambling is a maximum of 4 clients per 1 guide and we will only be able to accommodate 7 clients on this exclusive challenge. You will be accompanied by 2 experienced and friendly mountain leaders, Gareth Clarke and Pete Hyde, who will do everything to help you succeed. Accommodation: We have booked 3 nights' hostel accommodation in Fort William, the beautiful Borrowdale valley in the Lake District and Pen y Pass at the foot of Snowdon. The hostels are well-equipped with a lounge, restaurant/dining room, drying room, self-catering kitchen and a licensed bar. Meals: We will provide provisions for a simple breakfast and provisions for packed lunches for you to make up yourselves. For evening meals we will stop for food en route to the next night's accommodation. Cost: Total cost of trip is £425 £125 deposit payable on RSVP, £300 balance payable by 23rd June to GO Venture LTD, account No[masked] sort code[masked] Please use reference N3P19 and message me to confirm receipt of balance.
