The Caucasus Mountains are home of the highest peak in Europe. Located in Southern Russia, Mount Elbrus reaches 5,642 meters above sea level and is a popular destination for mountaineers around the world.
Due to the location of this peak, weather conditions can be a real obstacle for the ascent. This is why it is so important to come along with a local certified guide. Hike up the highest summit in Europe in a safe way!

We loved our experience at Mt Elbrus with our Guide Denis. He was an awesome Guide very knowledgable and skilled. We would use him again. We were greatful for his translation as English was not spoken by many! Mt Elbrus was an amazing place. All lift passes and accommodation excellent. Food was really good. Training days on the mountain was a wonderful experience and my partner made it to the summit with Denis. Sadly I did not but will plan another trip to attempt it myself. I would recommend Denis to anyone wanting to climb Mt Elbrus. Great guy and Guide! Thank you for putting us in touch with him and helping arrange a well organised trip. Very happy customer experience all round!
Me and Denis had rock-climbing trip at Sinai mountains on April 2015 We climbed 3 routes PD_AD grade from 5 to 12 pitches each. Everything was good-weather,routes and guide, who did his job perfectly
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
