Travel to and in the Caucasus

There are no regular scheduled buses from Mineralnye Vody - just private buses: in front of the airport and in front of railway station. Usually the buses are ordered by a group but they may have sits available. Cost is about 12-15 Euro per sit. Though there is no guarantee that there will be available sits for sure in such buses. Cost of a mini bus (8-10 sits) is about 120-150 Euro (negotiable).


There are two bus stations in Nalchik: intercity and local. From the local station there are two scheduled minibuses operating to Terskol at 13:00; 16:00. The schedule is not strictly adhered to. Sometimes these buses depart when full. Cost is about 4 Euro per sit. It is possible to rent a car or minibus to Terskol at the intercity station. Cost of a mini bus (8-10 sits) is about 90-120 Euro (negotiable).


We recommend booking of a mini bus or bus with the travel companies what offers services in the Elbrus area. Price will be about the same the local drivers offer without advanced booking and there is guarantee that you will be definitely met due to your arrival.
