Come on the highest point of Europe, the Elbrus! This program is classic for the Elbrus. You spend 10 days in the Baksan Valley on the southern slopes of Elbrus. Here are the big tourist centers with hotels, restaurants and cable cars. As you acclimatize, you will get to know the surroundings of Elbrus and the side valleys of the Baksan Valley.
 
The Baskan Valley is not as well developed as you would imagine. This is exactly what makes the attraction to visit this beautiful, pristine valley and to explore the area. If you look closely, you will find volcanic rocks and even basalt columns on Elbrus!
