The highest peak in Europe and one of the Seven Summits, Mount Elbrus is located in the Western Caucasus close to the border with Georgia.

In spite of the easy route to the summit, Mount Elbrus can be challenging. Because of its altitude and location (close to the sea), a storm can start unexpectedly. That’s why an experienced and certified mountain guide is absolutely a must.

In my company, you will not need to worry about organising your trip. You can leave it to a true professional! This is a private program. If you were looking to join a group, you can check out my Mt. Elbrus ascent for groups.

Please find below the program I usually propose:

Day 1
Arrival to Mineralnye Vody airport. Then transfer to Terskol village and overnight in a hotel.

Day 2
Acclimatisation hike until the top of Mount Cheget (3770 m).

Day 3 
Short transfer to ski-lift in Azau Medow. Reaching 3700 m by cable car and check-in at the mountain hut. Then walking around for better acclimatisation.

Day 4

Acclimatisation ascent until 4700 m. Then back down to the hut and preparing for the ascent day.

Day 5
Ascent day!! It takes 8-9 hours to reach the top of Europe, then descent to the hut. Optionally we can use a snow cat to reach 4900 m and so save power and time.

Day 6

Descent to the hotel of Terskol. Rest day.

Day 7
Transfer to Mineralnye Vody airport, then flight back home.

For more information feel free to contact me. I have my own service on Mt Elbrus, which allows me to offer flexible and convenient prices. It’s also possible to add extra days in case of bad weather or for better acclimatisation.
