Imagine saying that a trip to America is complete after only visiting New York City or Los Angeles. Sure, those places are worth visiting, but what a missed opportunity for any outdoor adventurer if he/she never hiked in Yosemite or Yellowstone National Parks. Russia is the world’s largest country, stretching from Eastern Europe through northern Asia, all the way to the Pacific Ocean. It covers nine different time zones and features extremely diverse climates, ecosystems, and landscapes. Ask yourself this: “What is the first thing that you think of when you think of tourism in Russia? Do you think about Moscow, Russia’s financial and political center? How about St. Petersburg, the beautiful home of Russian art, culture and heritage? Or maybe you have a Hollywood view, with a snow-covered landscape that never sees the light of the sun.
Southern Russia is unknown to most Westerners, but there is a whole other world to discover here. Head almost directly south from Moscow and you’ll discover the majestic mountains of the North Caucasus, home to Mt. Elbrus (one of the Seven Summits and the tallest mountain in Europe), and warm, hospitable people who descend from fascinating ancient cultures that transcend Soviet and Russian influences. We, at Elbrus Elevation (EE), specialize in opening people’s eyes to this unique, untouched land and myriad cultures.
