Food and accommodation

All accommodation is included in the trip cost. In Tbilisi we are based in hotel**. We offer double occupancy accommodation. At the camp we use 2 persons double skinned tents. Single rooms and tents are available on extra charge.

The hotel in the Elbrus area is pleasantly situated and friendly; rooms are double, facilities are ensuite but some being shared between two rooms. On Elbrus itself we stay at mountain huts with mattresses.

All the transport is private. Depending on the group size we use a bus or minibus.

We provide three daily meals during the program. In Tbilisi we offer varied and tasty food, usually a mix of national and European. On the trek we provide dried and canned food as well as cheese, milk, meat. We use lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Breakfast consists of oatmeal, porridge, muesli, eggs, bread, butter, jam/cheese, tea/coffee, chocolate. Lunch includes meat, tinned fish/caviar, rice, vegetables, fruit, tea/coffee. Dinner includes soup, main course with meat, dessert and tea/coffee. On the Elbrus part of the tour the variety of foods available is rather limited so we recommend that you bring with you a small selection of "goodies" - chocolates, nuts etc. which you are particularly fond of. These will be useful especially at times when the altitude might reduce your appetite for main meals or when you need energy for the final summit push. 

We try to cater vegetarians but we cannot provide the same standard as expected in the West. We suggest that vegetarians take their own protein supplement if this is likely to cause a problem. Please, inform us about your dietary needs in advance.
