Проект, меняющий представление об инклюзивном туризме
From August 1st 2021 to August 1st 2022
International inclusivity project: Mount Elbrus ascent , media campaign
Project mountainway – is a Russian-American expedition by people with disabilities (limited capabilities) , from to floor of mount Elbrus all the way to the summit, on a handbike Fat Explorer.

During the whole journey our team will be filming the ascent on a professional camera , making the journey into a full scale documentary.

There is a worldwide trend of «inclusive tourism». We shred the stereotypes and beliefs that people with limited capabilities actually have limited capabilities. We provide them with an opportunity to be equal to any other tourist you can meet along your path
