OVERVIEW

The Mount Elbrus Challenge is an exhilarating all-inclusive 12-day adventure, to one of the Seven Summits. The challenge will lead us on a 9-day climb to the top of this inactive volcano and in doing so will push us to our physical limits while offering us stunning views across the glaciers and crevasses of the lower Caucasus range.

We transfer to the Elbrus lower camp (2,200m) where we base ourselves for three nights while progressively climbing higher each day on acclimatisation treks and spend time practicing our crampon, rope and ice-axe techniques.

Having attempted to summit the highest mountain in Europe (5,642m) and having experienced the breathtaking vistas that the region has to offer, we descend back to the spa town of Kislovodsk where we can enjoy a traditional Russian sauna, a chilled vodka or two and a great celebratory meal! 

The quest to the summit of Mount Elbrus is a tough one. Nothing but hard work and determination will get you to the summit and the training and preparation required should not be underestimated. Mt Elbrus is one of the toughest challenges that we currently offer and as achievable as it is, it is one that should not be taken lightly.  

Once you register, you will receive access to your trip App, which includes all challenge documentation you'll need to prepare you for your challenge. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you, and we also offer pre-challenge training weekends in the UK where you can meet our trek leaders and test our your kit and fitness!
