Not technically demanding, climbing Elbrus is a great mix of international travel, culture, and physical challenge. We work with Russian guides who have summited the mountain countless times, and have the local connections required to smooth out some of the rough edges of travel in Russia. We offer a great itinerary that gives you a great chance for success on the mountain, while fitting into a traditional two week vacation, and giving you a chance to see some of Moscow.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Moscow, transfer to hotel

Day 2: City tour of Moscow - See the Kremlin, Red Square, St Basil's, the GUM. We'll travel through the beautiful and efficient Moscow subway. According to most, the "public" subway was constructed to hide the more extensive secret KGB subway that hides under the city. It's also a great day to reunite with lost luggage and missed flights.

Day 3: Fly to Mineralniye Vody (1 1/2 hours) mini van ride to Terskol, at the base of Elbrus (4 hours)

Day 4: Acclimatization hike

Day 5: Ride cable car to Krugazor Hut on mountain, 3100meters, Acclimatization hike up the mountain, sleep at Krugazol

Day 7: Move to Priyut 11, 4000 meters, hike to Pastuhova Rocks, 4600 meters, sleep in Priyut 11
