If asked about the highest and most dramatic mountains of Europe nine out of ten Europeans will answer “the Alps”. Yet, the grandest and by far the highest mountain chain of Europe (seven summits over 5000m plus Mt.Elbrus with its 5642m) is the Caucasus, stretching between the Black and Caspian seas in the continent’s south-eastern corner.
Undoubtedly, Mt. Elbrus, this white double-headed dormant volcano, is the highest, most beautiful and most alluring mountain in Russia. It is also considered as the tenth most prominent peak in the world.
We have been organizing ascents to Mount Elbrus for over 10 years. We offer the best mountain guides and the service, that's why almost all our expeditions are successful.
Interesting and important detail: it will take you just 7-8 hours to get from Moscow to the base of this Seven Summits peak.
