Guest House and Huts
I'm an IFMGA-certified guide and have been guiding for the past 15 years.
I got the chance to do beautiful ascents like the Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, Mont Cook, McKinley, 7000m Peaks in ex-USSR, technical climbing In the Caucasus, new climbing routes in the USA, ski-touring in Alps, Russia etc.
I'm an expert in the Elbrus region. I know every corner of it and will be happy to guide you to the summit, at 5.642m high, skiing or walking.
Please get in touch with me and let's leave together for a wonderful adventure in the incredible Caucasus mountain range!
I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available, either Nikolay or Victor will guide you!
My favorite saying: "We will either find a way, or make one".
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
