“So I got to share this incredible experience with the most amazing group of people, we did an expedition in the Georgian Caucasus Mountains trekking up to 3000 metres, seeing Black Rock Lake, averaging about 6-8 hours a day for the week, stayed in the wilderness, rode horses, hiked and climbed up to a waterfall, ate the most delicious food and wine, stayed with the most welcoming host family, shared some beautiful moments together making friendship bonds for life. Thank you to all who were a part of this little journey with me, if you ask me, I would say every human needs the wilderness to feel alive, free and well just plain happy 😊 We were also lucky enough to be a part of their new promo video, very grateful indeed! Nino and Pavels are the perfect pair to show you everything they know in Georgia, they have a relaxed friendly vibe and really show their passion with nature. I can't recommend them enough, sure to have a life-changing adventure!”

“Last week was my first experience with Camp Caucasus and first experience with mountain camping in general. In this case the organisers showed a high level of professionality organising these kind of camps. 1) organizational part was up to point; 2) organisers communicated with us properly before the camp to inform what to bring with us/what not to bring/what to expect/ what we will eat etc. in all aspects so I felt prepared; 3)in mountains we can never predict the weather percisely and I liked that organisers were open minded to change something in our scedual so we don't miss the most beautiful sights. 4) One thing I did not prepare myself was that the hiking in mountains was actually hard for me ( and I'm trained :), so be prepared physically. Another thing I did not prepare myself was generosity of Georgian people and a LOT of tasty food there. 🙃”
