Explore with Goulven, an IFMGA certified guide, the Kamchatka peninsula. This 8-day heliboarding trip is a unique adventure on a remote and beautiful volcanic peninsula.
Russia is much more than rich history and a fascinating culture. Russia has also a vast territory with magical natural settings. The Kamchatka peninsula is one of these magical places and you will get to explore it on this incredible heliboarding and ski touring 8-day trip.
Kamchatka is an incredible volcanic peninsula located in the Russian Far East, between the Okhotsk and Bering seas. It has over 200 volcanoes, 29 active and the highest being Mount Kljutschevskayay (4.790 m). The peninsula lies at a similar latitude to the UK. However, the cold Oyashio sea current and the arctic winds from Siberia keep it covered in snow most of the year.
The Kamchatka peninsula used to be a forbidden military area, thus it has remained in a natural and wild state. Now it is opened to the public and a few lucky snowboarders and skiers get to explore it.
Because of its wild terrain, many of the best spots for snowboarding are difficult to reach. That is why a helicopter ride is an excellent option. Not only you will reach the most amazing areas: you will also enjoy the stunning views of this wild and magnificent place.
Our MI8 helicopters will take you on a different adventure daily. Imagine yourself gliding along the fjords. Imagine the adrenaline running through your veins when you snowboard down the sides of a volcano. You will pass through fuming vents and immense forests. And at the end of each day, we normally go to relax at the thermal baths near our hotel.
If you want to be part of this exclusive adventure, please send me a message. I will make sure you enjoy this unique and unforgettable experience.

With my name I can’t make you believe that I am mountaineer of origin! I am a breton migrant worker who was stranded in the Pyrénées and later in the Alps…
What I like most of my job is the incredible mountain’s support to weave the real relationships in a short time and often the quality with people whom I guide to these beautiful summits. It is with a great pleasure that I put at your disposal my 25 years of experience in the climbing, mountaineering and skiing playgrounds to guide you in your adventure projects. I am also ski instructor and mountain rescuer. See you soon!
Overall the experience was great - Xavier really knew the local area catered to everyones abilities in the group and offered some great advice. I would love to book another day trip (or maybe even a multi day trip!) with Xavier so I could experience some of the peace and quiet you get away from the piestes in the remote areas of the mountains. Would recommend to anyone that wants to explore the mountains away from the crowds.

Goulven a une lecture époustouflante de la montagne. Son histoire personnelle est passionnante et en dit long sur son expertise. Etant guide à travers le monde et co-pilote d’hélicoptère de secours dans les Alpes, on se sent rassuré de le suivre hors des sentiers battus. Je recommande vivement d’être guidé par Goulven, surtout pour des randonnées techniques.
