To enter Russia you’ll need to get a visa before you travel. Make sure you allow enough time to get your visa. The Russian Embassy advised in March 2018 that it takes around 20 business days (4 weeks) to process most visa applications. For further information, see the Russian embassy website and the website of VFS Global who manage Russian visa applications.

We recommend you check at http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx.

Mt Elbrus is a very demanding hike, so you need to have a great level of fitness. The longest day is 14 hours, and you wil be trekking with a 10kg rucksack. We recommend you train with intensive sport/running at least 2-3x a week in the 3 months before your trip. We also recommend taking a few long training hikes.

The minimum age for this trek is 18.

You must have some experience walking in crampons and using a hiking axe. You will, however, have one refresher day. If you don't have these skills, please contact us for recommendations for a winter skills course.

You will need clothing suitable to -18C and appropriate mountaineering equipment (Crampons, Ice Axe, double-layered mountaineering boots eg La Sportiva Spantik). You can rent these in Russia if needed. A full kit list is provided within the course PDF.

You will meet no later than 1 pm at the airport, on day 1 of your itinerary. You will arrive back at the airport by 2 pm, on day 8 of your itinerary.
