Adventure Guide Service
We can lead you on anything from a simple day hike to a multi-day expedition into the wild backcountry. All experience levels are welcome. Together we can select an appropriate route and destination.
Take your skiing to the next level. Our custom coaching can improve your off-piste skiing ability and get you ready for powder and tackling more challenging terrain with confidence and style. Training for operation and usage of avalanche safety equipment is also available.
Get away from the crowds and out into the pristine mountains. We offer guided ski tours for all ability levels, from those looking to skin into the backcountry for the first time, all the way to dedicated ski mountaineers needing a local guide to help them safely access the abundance of steep couloirs, high peaks, and technical descents the Caucasus has on offer.
There are no shortage of high mountains in Georgia, ranging in difficulty from entry-level to highly technical. Our guides are professionally trained alpinists and can help you reach a summit suitable to your ability level.
For the adventurer who’s main interest in traveling is taking pictures, we offer tours to remote, stunning places without the additional complexities required when mountaineering, skiing, or trekking long distances so you can focus on your passion: producing beautiful images through your lens.
Document and share your adventure. The professional action sports photographers and videographers on our team can ensure your epic memories will live forever. This is a perfect add on for any of our tours.
Founder & Lead Guide
Originally from the Northern Rockies, I feel at home anywhere that snowclad peaks soar above the horizon. A mountain nomad by nature, I have fallen in love with the rugged, majestic Caucasus Range of Georgia and the distinct and proud people that have inhabited it since time eternal.
This land never disappoints my curiosity nor ceases to surprise me with its well-kept secrets and sublime beauty. I’m constantly on the lookout for like-minded adventurers with whom I can share the hard to reach corners of this special place.
I can guarantee to all who venture with me challenge, discovery, and a one-of-a-kind experience. Like John Muir, “The mountains are calling and I must go.” So come join me!
“Where to start! Ski touring in Georgia is an out of this world experience, and Caucasus Nomad made sure that we got the trip of a lifetime. Laidback attitude, highly experienced and safety-oriented, and with a wealth of knowledge of the best local places to stay and ski, Luke really went above and beyond to ensure that the trip was something special…We are already planning a trip back, and will definitely be getting in touch with Caucasus Nomad on our return.”
“We had the most amazing skiing day! My friend Amalia and me have an intermediate skiing level and Luke took us to amazing places and we could ski over fresh snow and freeride. We would have not dared to do it ourselves and Luke gave us a great self confidence boost and we really got rid of many fears and learnt new skills. Georgian lunch in the sun at the top of Gudauri was spot on!”
“The trip to Black Rock Lake in Lagodekhi was truly a memorable experience. Everything went very smoothly, as Luke took care of everything, making sure that we had the necessary equipment and supplies – everything from boots to Georgian cognac! The trail is particularly spectacular when emerging from the tree-line up to the stunning Black Rock Lake, which straddles the border between Georgia and Dagestan (Russian Federation). I will definitely go with Caucasus Nomad on another adventure!”
Your adventure awaits!
