Europe's highest mountain, Mt. Elbrus is located in the heart of the Caucasus Mountains in Russia. It is one of the famous Seven Summits ... the highest peaks on each of the seven continents. Little known outside of Eastern Europe, the peaks, glaciers and valleys of the Caucasus are as beautiful as the Swiss Alps. Though gently angled, the ascent is a long trek up a snow field requiring fitness, perseverance and the use of crampons and an ice ax or ski poles. The Go Trek guided climb will be combined with interesting treks in the highlands and a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to enjoy some Russian culture. Join GoTrek mountain climbing guides for your next adventure!
The gleaming spires of Red Square and the Kremlin are just a few of the sights you'll see in Moscow on your way to Mt. Elbrus. We may even get an opportunity to attend a performance of the Bolshoi Ballet. In St. Petersburg, we tour the city including the Fortress of Peter and Paul, St. Isaacs Cathedral and the breathtaking Hermitage. You can even wind through the city on an evening riverboat cruise.
Basic mountaineering experience is required. The climb is non-technical although you need to have basic training in the use of crampons, ice axe, and roped travel. We take a cable car to a mountain lodge, and then climb Mount Elbrus at 18,510 feet.
