This 13 day Mount Elbrus trek is designed incorporate training in using an ice axe and crampons and to have a good number of acclimatization walks. As with any ascent of Elbrus it is still a tough trip.
This trip combines an Elbrus climb with a short acclimatisation period in the beautiful valleys and glaciers neighbouring Elbrus.
This is the shortest programme we have for Elbrus. Primarily this is for the well-acclimatised and those with previous experience of mountain trekking.
Most first time visitors to Caucasus are keen to ascend Mount Elbrus, 5642m, Europe’s highest mountain. Elbrus lies just north of the main Caucasus Chain – a range almost 1000 miles long with a heavily glaciated central section containing several summits rising well above 5000m.
