The pandemic, quarantines and closed
border have brought travel industry to a
standstill and climbing & mountaineering tour companies are no exception.
Mountain Freak founder Nika
Gomiashvili speaks about the failure of
the season. The company worked with tourists from many countries and mainly
organized adventure and expedition tours in the mountains. the company has stopped working now.
“Before the pandemic, the
entire season had been booked, but the coronavirus changed plans, and now we
can say that this season has completely failed, ”he says.
According to Nika Gomiashvili,
despite the restrictions, the company is not going to change its strategy.
“We will wait for the end
of the pandemic and the opening of borders. It makes no sense for our company to focus on domestic tourism as the local
population is not interested in mountain expeditions, and our service is too
expensive, for this reason we work only with foreigners, ”he explains.
Mountain Freak founder adds that mainly tourists from Poland, Spain, France and
Germany are interested in mountain expeditions and ski tours.
