Self-drive Roads of Caucasus, Russia, 12 Days

Collective group for the dates from 10th of October till 21st of October
Price for collective group is 3760 USD

Describing Russia in a few words, most say, it is a land of vast expanses, private people, cold weather and heavy sky. But this journey is made to break stereotypes, as still there is something non-traditional in traditional Russia.

High Mountain ranges, open-minded, passionate people, warm and sunny weather… our overland program takes place on the scenic mountain roads of the Caucasus. And there it is, white dome of the highest peak in Europe, independent and lonely Elbrus. There was a time he could strike terror into anyone who was close to him. This volcano is asleep now, but there is the memory of his former greatness in form of dozens of thermal springs, huge basalt crystals and lava flows.

You will be able to drive to places, one can hardly reach on foot. … delicious cuisine, deeply rooted traditions and customs, beautiful legends and centuries-old legends. The nature and hospitality of the Caucasus will leave no one indifferen.
