Mountain Climbing trips – Mount Elbrus

Reach the summit of this famous 5-thousander, the highest mountain in Europe

Located in the Caucasus mountain range in southern Russia, Mount Elbrus (5642m) is the highest mountain in Europe. The area around it is one of the most beautiful in the Caucasus, with several 5-thousanders at a relatively short distance. A multi-day expedition that usually involves several acclimatization hikes around the area, climbing to the top of Mount Elbrus is a serious challenge that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The south route is the most popular among climbers because it is both technically easier and has better infrastructure. The north route requires more advanced mountaineering skills and is more remote. Feel like you’re up for the challenge? Pick one of our trips below and hire a certified mountain guide to take you to the top. Explore-Shares only promotes trips led by certified guides.
