Description

Join me for this fantastic 7-day heliskiing trip to the Kamchatka Peninsula, in Russia’s far east!

Kamchatka is a volcanic peninsula in the east of Siberia, stretching towards the Pacific Ocean. Due to its unlimited and untouched slopes, is considered a snow paradise.

However, this region was a forbidden military zone for a long time and didn’t appear on any maps. It was in the 1990’s that it became possible to access this wild territory, which is a ‘UNESCO World Heritage Site’.

During this trip, we’ll discover this exceptional land of fjords and volcanoes that allow descents up to 3000 m. You’ll have the chance of exploring a landscape where men only pass through, among geysers and thermal springs.

I strongly recommend this exciting heliskiing trip to Kamchatka. My aim is to provide you the best conditions through all your trip, giving you total satisfaction. But above all, I guarantee you the highest level of safety.

Besides, in case the helicopter is unable to take off because of bad weather, I offer you a wide range of activities to do:

  • A visit to Petropavlovsk, its museums and markets
  • Ski touring or skiing in neighboring resorts
  • Swimming in the nearby thermal pools
  • Skidoo trips
  • Dog sledding
  • Other outdoor activities available nearby, like sea kayaking and white water rafting.

For further information, you can find the program for this trip below.

Please get in touch with me if you wish to come here. This place is just fantastic! I fell in love with Kamchatka the second I saw it and now I spend several months here every year. It will be my pleasure to be your guide and ensure you have the time of your life!

You can take a look at other trips I organize, like this heliskiing in Krasnaya Polyana, also in Russia.

Helicopters:
The helicopters we use are 'MI-8 biturbine', the most popular model in the world, renowned for their power and reliability. They are chartered from a private company, Kamchatka Airlines, who guarantee the upkeep and maintenance of these helicopters in line with International standards. The flight team, for this 20 passenger helicopter
is made up of two pilots and a flight engineer. Our pilots have many years experience flying in the mountains and have been working with us for many years. They have proven their capabilities on numerous flights and have shown their aptitude for taking
wise decisions in uncertain weather conditions.

Flight time:
In contrast to other Heli-ski companies who base their flight time on the vertical meters skied, we prefer to base our calculations on actual flight time. Not only is this method better for you, closer to the reality of the costs, but it also allows us freedom to adapt
our program depending on conditions, giving us the possibility to explore the best sites. So a good day will give you 7 000 to 10 000 meters of vertical descent for around 2h30 of flight time! The flight time allocated for each trip is based on the average number of hours used throughout each trip during the season. If the weather conditions
do not allow you to use all these hours, we will reimburse them to you.
