Not only will you have a helicopter at your disposal for an entire week, you will also have the chance to spend one or more nights in a remote village on the other side of the Kackar Mountain Range, adding some extra adventure to this trip.

You will also be more than comfortable in the Hasimoglu Hotel. Inside, there is the Turkey Heliski Lounge, where guests can relax and watch movies on a big screen TV. There is also a fitness area with a gym, jacuzzi and sauna. There is a game room and two massage rooms available all day. Finally, there is also the Turkish Hammam just 2 minutes away that has 45 degree natural hot spring water.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
