This is an amazing 8-day trip, heliskiing and ski touring in the Kamchatka Peninsula, in Russia.
The Kamchatka peninsula is a remote volcanic island at the very Eastern tip of Russia, between the Okhotsk and Bering seas.
This land is the size of Germany, Austria and Switzerland together, and has only 378 000 inhabitants.
At 4790 m, Mount Kljutschevskayay is the highest of the 200 volcanoes in this peninsula. In fact, Kamchatka concentrates the most dense volcanic activity, with 29 active volcanoes.
For a long time, it has been a forbidden military area, which partly explains the lack of inhabitants and infrastructure. Most of the peninsula has remained as a natural wild state. Actually, it’s unique because of its biodiversity both on land and in the coastal waters.
Thanks to the helicopter, this wild and vast territory is now open to a happy few skiers, with its wide virgin slopes facing the sea.
Every day, several thousand meters of vertical drop will put your legs to the test until they burn, from 3000 m all the way down to the beach. Once there, the sturdy MI8 will take you back up onto another summit. The flights are spectacular!
During the trip, days generally end in the warm thermal baths close to the hotel.
This are eight days of unforgettable runs, gliding along the fjords facing the sea. We’ll also ski down the sides of volcanoes between the fuming vents and through vast forests of tall conifers.
In case of some inclement weather, we’ll be skiing inside the forest.
