In 2018, we celebrated a small anniversary - 10 years of successful climbs on Elbrus with clients. During this time, we have developed our own approach: both interesting, safe and correct in terms of acclimatisation. We have taken the best from the standard programme, the wishes of the participants and our experience.
In 2021 we are guaranteed to run 2 programmes: August and September. We may run one extra for the June holidays. Although from experience, June is often cloudy and with rainy weather below. On the other hand, it is very good for another format of climbing - skitour & splitboard.
Typically our programmes are 7 days. The guests arrive at Mineralnye Vody airport one weekend, spend a week in the mountains and leave the next weekend - this is optimal. The number of days and nights spent in hotels can be reduced or increased upon your request.

It is worth saying that the programme (even the most standard one) can change due to weather conditions, well-being, etc. This applies to the number of days, preferences for accommodation in the valley, preferences for accommodation in the highlands, eating habits and time availability of participants - in this sense, we are those who love non-standard requests and tasks that are put to us by clients.It is worth saying that the programme (even the most standard one) can change due to weather conditions, well-being, etc. This applies to the number of days, preferences for accommodation in the valley, preferences for accommodation in the highlands, eating habits and time availability of participants - in this sense, we are those who love non-standard requests and tasks that are put to us by clients.
