Trekking the Caucasus expedition 2019
This mountain trip is not just leisure time, it is a real expedition that will last more than two months and will surely become one of those experiences that will divide the life of its participants into «before» and «after.»
We will begin our journey from Krasnaya Polyana and will trek through the mountains for more than 300 km (186 miles). On our way, we will be using horses and off-road vehicles in some short sections. This part of the expedition will be completed in Vladikavkaz. We will make the rest of our way to the Caspian Sea by cars. We are going to walk in the most interesting places, stay overnight in mountain villages, and get acquainted with cultural diversity of the Caucasian peoples.
The route is divided into several parts. 7-9 days each. You can pass the entire route with us or choose one or several particularly impressive parts.

Advantages of Caucasus Explorer’s trekking and hiking tours
If you are a detail oriented person and are looking for something specific, you have come to the right place. Our hiking tours have a few characteristics that will exceed your expectations. Whether you want to traverse rocky cliffs and raw forests, or meet the fascinating folks who live in these pristine lands, each trekking experience will be new and exciting.
True Wilderness Travel
We hike through untouched mountains that are rarely explored by tourists. This makes our trekking and hiking tours true wilderness travels through areas yet unspoiled by careless humans.
Typically we organize trekking tours for small groups of 6 to 10 people. This allows each group member to receive as much attention as needed and adds an improved level of safety!
Travelers in the Caucasus are accustomed to traveling light, so during our trekking tours your backpacks will be carried by horses and donkeys. Only during complicated expedition routes where it is impossible to utilize pack animals will you have to carry your own backpack. In such cases we try to use only modern light-weight equipment and plan our trip with frequent stops to replenish supplies.
More than just trekking
The Caucasian mountains are a plentiful land and similar to other mountainous regions populated by fascinating cultures. During our trekking and hiking adventures we like to stop and talk to shepherds in small mountain villages and learn about their ancient traditions. We never pass by an opportunity to spend the day in a city or by a sea shore.
