Mt Elbrus, Russia

Visiting the various regions and cultures of western Russia and traveling into the Caucasus Mountains is almost as much of an adventure as climbing the 5,643 meter mountain! Our route to the summit of Mt. Elbrus itself is non-technical and does not require previous mountaineering experience if attempted with our Canadian trained and certified mountain guides.
