In September 2020 we won the auction for this bus. Until then it was an rescue bus in the mining town of Chiatura, which was famous for its many cable cars.
By winter we want to convert the bus into a bivouac with 6 simple loungers, a kitchenette and a seating area. Then we drive the bus into the mountains of Adjara for the winter and let it snow in there. Next year we will bring the bivouac bus to another location.
About half a day's tour from Bakhmaro, we will position the bus at a point with fresh water for the next winter.
Outside there will be a toilet hut with a simple toilet.
We will equip the groups with a satellite phone for emergencies and are otherwise on their own. Single days / nights or several days in a row are possible. Optionally, a ski guide can also be booked for the tour. The tour can only take place in stable weather conditions. Our team in Bakhmaro is ready for emergencies.
The "Bivouac bus" offers pure backcountry life as a simple bivouac. No comfort, no convenience - just adventure!
You need to be independed in organising the bivouac, cooking but also touring.
Since the bus can only be reached with skins, a good level of fitness is required. The remote location is not forgiving of mistakes, so extensive experience and skills in every type of snow are essential.
The groups are responsible for their own food. Durable food is stored on site. We provide fresh food in Bakhmaro, but the group has to take it to the bivouac bus and the group have to cook for
There is a simple gas stove and the small wood oven for cooking. All necessary cooking utensils are on site.
