Discover the astonishing Mount Elbrus in this 7-day program in Russia.

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!

For more details of the daily activities of the trip please take a look at my program at the bottom of this page. However, this itinerary is flexible and can be extended in case of bad weather. Also remember that it’s important to have prior mountaineering experience as well as a good shape to join the group.

Come and enjoy a wonderful experience to the top roof of Europe. I can assure Mount Elbrus will be something to remember!

This program is designed for open groups. If you want, you can hire a private trip.
