Description

Are you up for a fabulous heliboarding experience? You should try this 7-day trip in the Kaçkar Mountains with an expert mountain guide!

The Kaçkar Massif is one of the most important group of mountains in Turkey.  Mount Kaçkar (almost 4,000 m,) is its highest peak.

This region is a natural paradise with steep cliffs and dense forests. The proximity to the Black Sea provides a nice and humid weather, which guarantees abundant snowfall during the winter.

Skiers and snowboarders will enjoy an unforgettable experience! We will fly over the mountains having the most amazing views: mountain peaks rising above lakes, rivers, glaciers, and forests. When the helicopter lands, we will ride on top-quality powder snow.

You will have the privilege of splitboarding in a small group of 4 people. We’ll have more than 1,700 square-km to explore and 20,000 meters of vertical drops to spend.

On the other hand, our accommodation will be the Hasimoglu, a three stars hotel located in Ayder. The rooms are equipped with private bathroom, TV, minibar, telephone and Wi-Fi. The hotel also offers a bar, billiards, massage service and a projection room. The kitchen offers varied and high-quality meals.

And if all this is not enough, the thermal baths are just two minutes away from the hotel. During your stay, you can also enjoy the benefits of this 40°C natural spring water.

So, if you’re ready for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, please contact me. I will be glad to take guide you in this incredible heliboarding adventure in the Kaçhar Mountains!

About the guide

guide profile img

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide since 2003
The mountain brought us together in the 90's and currently it also brings us together with my guide friends: Stéphane, Christian and Jean Luc, who is mountain leader.
Our passion has allowed us to do a great job: being mountain guides.
After having guided for over 10 years in Verbier, we decided to establish a guide's office that allows us to sell trips, ski touring days, heliskiing here and elsewhere, mountaineering, and all those things that are possible to do with a mountain guide.
We are also colleagues in the specialized team of rescuers "Maison FXB Rescue" and it is with pleasure that we offer advanced training courses, avalanche courses, crevasse rescue, the management of injured people…
From all this, the main objective is to enjoy as much time as we can in the mountain with you in the most beautiful places in the world with a single slogan: “Safety!”
It will be a pleasure to share a moment with you!
