Roads of the Caucasus
( Trip to the highest volcano in Europe)
The beauty of the Caucasus is a phenomenon beyond words. This is a place where every season sovereignly takes effect, obeying only one law - the law of time. We chose the two most beautiful times of the year: spring and autumn. Spring is when everything on earth awakens and all of Adygea appears before us in full bloom. Opening the car windows, we take in an avalanche of fragrances; our lungs are filled with interwoven aromas of the exuberant mixture of apples, pears, irises and mountain peonies.
Autumn is the time of bright colors and piercing blue sky. This is the time when all the mountains don the brightest outfits from their arsenal. Wherever you look, it’s the Yellow-Orange-Red Madness all around. Lots of aromatic fruit, it’s surprisingly warm and calm.
The Caucasus promises us both the graceful views in the mountains and incredible adventures off the beaten track. Our seasoned instructors are always there to help in any situation, because driving along mountain roads is not easy. The brave UAZ Patriots have proven themselves excellent in the series of our trips. No traffic jams and traffic lights here, just streams and rivers, boulders and ravines, cliffs and gorges.
Apart from the hills, we’ll see the appealing resort cities, such as Kislovodsk, where you will certainly be amazed by the architecture and gardens, blooming in colors that correspond to the time of year.
And then of course Sochi, the Olympic capital of 2014, is universally recognized all over Russia as a summer paradise. It is definitely worth a visit.
We strongly advise you bring all the cameras at hand! Views guaranteed.
And the Caucasian cuisine! After all, it’s common knowledge that the best shashlik (kebab) in the world you can taste is cooked in the mountains!
