1-week heliboarding trip in Turkey’s Kackar Mountains with Ueli Kestenholz


Come and enjoy a full-week heliboarding trip in Turkey's amazing Kackar Mountains with IFMGA certified guide Thierry as well as Ueli Kestenholz.


Kackar Mountain Range

8 Days





  • Enjoy a week-long heli-boarding trip in the Kackar Mountains of Turkey.
  • Choose from a number of great spots.
  • Spend each night in comfortable lodging.


For a full week, we would like to offer you some of the most memorable and fun heli-boarding you’ve ever experienced in the Kackar Mountains in Turkey.

Throughout this trip, you will get to enjoy a number of spectacular rides in the place where snowboarding has been said to be born! Within the tremendous Kackar Mountain range you will get to visit some truly amazing spots. Full of thrilling slopes and views you will never forget, the range is a sight to behold. Moreover, because you will get to enjoy several drops, there will definitely be no shortage of variety.

Turkey might not be the first place you think of when it comes snowboarding. However, people have been snowboarding in the Kackar Mountains since the 1940s. And, after this week long expedition it won’t be difficult to see why.

It is important that participants on this trip have prior snowboarding experience. You should also be in good physical condition.

After this trip in the Kackar Mountains, I have no doubt you’ll want to come back. However, before you come visit a second time, you have to first experience the first. To do so, please send a request. We look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

We also offer an 8-day heliskiing trip in the Kackar Mountains, which you can enjoy here.



Comfortable lodging throughout the trip.

Meeting point

About the guide

I'm a IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide from Verbier in Valais. For the past 15 years I have been working in most of the heliski bases around the globe. For the moment, I'm focusing on Val d'Aran in the Pyrenees and Ayder and Ayladar in Turkey. I'm guiding there with a team of IFMGA guides. If I'm busy when you try to book a heliski day or tour, you'll be skiing with one of them. Join us and experience amazing skiing in less classic destinations!
