Mount Elbrus

Mount Elbrus is the highest peak in Europe and one of the Seven Summits. Mt. Elbrus, a dormant double-cone volcano, rises to 18,510ft / 5642m. Its double peaks tower over the stunning western Caucasus Region of Russia, near the border of Georgia. Elbrus is the highest point in all of Europe (& Russia), making this climb one of the renowned ‘Seven Summits’. Boasting 22 glaciers on the peak, this is the perfect introductory climb for anyone with a strong fitness level who wishes to build glacier climbing skills, climb a moderate high-altitude peak, and explore the fascinating and diverse Russian culture in the Caucasus mountains and the famed cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow. Our Elbrus Climb is from the accessible south side, which benefits from the use of snowcats and chair lifts to gain altitude and mountain huts for sleeping. This means that you only have to carry a small pack on all of your climbing days, allowing you to enjoy your summit experience much more. Lots of time is spent acquiring the necessary skills to climb a glaciated snow and ice route, and the terrain creates a perfect progression from low-angled cramponing early on the mountain to more exposed and steeper slopes on the summit day. The first few days are focused on day trips that allow us to acclimatize and develop glacier climbing skills.
