Description

Join me on a fantastic 7-day heliskiing safari trip in Kamchatka, a remote volcanic peninsula located in Siberiaeastern Russia. This unique area has over 200 volcanoes, 29 of which are active and it is part of the famous Pacific Ring of Fire.

During these days, we will fly and ski from North to South and discover new routes every day. This will allow us to ski on a wide variety of terrain. Kamchatka is incredibly vast and after more than 15 years of skiing here our team is always looking forward to explore new spots.

From the South to the North of the peninsula, from the Kuril Islands to the 4750m of altitude of Klychevskaya, we will ski down incredible and varied slopes. You will have the privilege to enjoy an unforgettable skiing experience at the heart of wild nature and at the same time to meet local population and villages. This trip is a wonderful combination of dream ski  and immersion in a truly endearing culture!

As this is a ski safari, our accommodation will be flexible and we will adapt it to everyday’s program. We take a group of 12 people on each trip. It will be 6 days of amazing skiing with 10 hours of flight (about 30000 meters). Our helicopter is an MI-8.

So if you are looking for an exciting adventure, wait no more and send me a request! Book your spot and let’s start planning this great trip together. You can also check all the other amazing heliskiing trips I offer on my profile!

More info

The price listed above is for a group of 12 people HELICOPTER 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 7000 to 10000 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.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been a mountain guide for almost 20 years. But I'm not only a guide...
The mountain is the thread of my life. I am a member of the Chamonix Guides Company, ski instructor and teacher for many years at ENSA (National School of Ski and Alpinism), I am very experienced in the mountains. My experience is multifaceted since I partake in varied projects, as a trainer and first aider at the Chamoniarde de Secours (an association that contributes to the development of mountain safety and to promote alpine environment knowledge), technical supervisor of the freeride competitions organization, or safety advisor and rider in several freeride videos.
My favorite?... The Kamchatka, heliski's promised land. In 2005 I created a heliski agency in Russia, to share my passion organizing exceptional ski journeys.
