My experience on this trip was amazing.

My experience on this trip was amazing. The mountains we hiked in were beautiful. The most awesome part of the trip was spending the night with a local Balkar family. It was truly a blessing to stay with them and experience their culture and language. Jacob from Texas

You won’t regret it!

It was an unforgettable experience.

Josh and Andrew provided the perfect trip for my friends and I. They planned all lodging, transportation, cultural exchanges and any required permits for specific regions.

Thank you Beyond Red Square for all your efforts!

Our trip with Beyond Red Square was excellent! They worked hard to give us an authentic experience of the sights, sounds and feel of the gorgeous mountains in the North Caucasus region. My favorite part, besides the beautiful scenery, was meeting the people in and around the Mt. Elbrus area. These people know the meaning of hospitality and went out of their way to warmly welcome us. Thank you Beyond Red Square for all your efforts! Sharon from North Carolina
