North Caucasus 2019

Caucasus: Let Adventures Happen!

The majestic Caucasus mountains won’t let you just enjoy them from aside, sitting on a bench. You have to discover them: their wildness, their brutal temper, their richness. “Once to go and never to forget” – that’s what we want you to say when the adventure is over. Therefore, we’ve chosen a brand new route full of outstanding views, tough passes, high snowy peaks and glaciers. Ready to challenge yourself? Then join us!

WHEN: 22/08 – 28/08/2019 (7 days)

WHERE: Pyatigorsk & Caucasus Mts., Russia

WHO: 5 – 15 young & energetic people

A great trial if you have an idea to get on top of Elbrus once!
