Velindre, Mount Elbrus Expedition 2021

6th - 16th September 2021

The Caucasus stretches for about 1,000 kilometres from the Black Sea to the Caspian, separating Europe from Asia. North of the main Caucasus ridge lays a land of mountain ridges running down to the Russian steppes. Each of these ridges is composed of many forested side valleys and snowy summits. Mt. Elbrus – the highest summit in Europe – lies just a few kilometres into Europe and into Russia.

The double-breasted summit of Elbrus can be seen for miles around from different parts of the Caucasus region. Both East (5,621m) and West (5,642m) summits are permanently covered with snow. Almost all first-time visitors to the Caucasus are keen to ascend Mount Elbrus, 5,642m, Europe’s highest mountain and known as one of the seven summits of the world to ‘bag’.

An extreme trekking challenge and an amazing once in a life-time experience!
