Elbrus: Inactive Volcano in the Caucasus Mountains

Elbrus: Inactive Volcano in the Caucasus Mountains

Have you ever dreamt to climb the highest peak in Europe and one of the Seven Summits? Our daily guaranteed departures can take you to Elbrus and you will enjoy the adventure, because it is one of the technically easiest of the higher peaks on the continent! You have two options:

Climbing Mt. Elbrus from the North which is for lovers of the untouched nature – no cable cars, hotels and restaurants. You reach the summit by walking from the beginning to the end – like those who climbed it for the first time 181 years ago.

Or you can chose our tour Climbing Mt. Elbrus from the South, which is considered a bit easier. You can reach a higher altitude for a short time by means of a gondola and a chair lift. The slopes are not very steep, but the lack of enough oxygen and the strong wind are a real challenge and those who reach the top are considered real mountaineers!

Climb with us to the roof of Europe and will not regret it!
