Experiences

Heli-Ski The Volcanoes of Kamchatka

The Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East is the most dramatic skiing destination on earth. Huge volcanic faces and long, winding slopes: be the first to leave your tracks on the pristine pistes of the greatest concentration of active volcanoes on Earth.

When to go:
March – May

The otherworldly beauty of the Kamchatka Peninsula is apparent from the moment you arrive in the capital, Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky, where you will be met by your guides and taken directly to your hotel. After a short drive, you will have time to settle in and begin preparations for the skiing ahead.

Your first full day in Kamchatka will begin with safety preparations and a trip briefing. Here you will be shown the ins-and-outs of heli-skiing and become acquainted with your guides, pilots and equipment.

Over the next few days, you will jump in and out of helicopters onto untouched mountains, skiing down live volcanoes. Whilst the specific locations can vary throughout your trip due to weather, volcano activity and snow conditions, the rugged topography ensures that you are spoilt for choice.

This unrivalled skiing experience will see you gliding down untouched slopes, descending fuming volcanos and through awe-inspiring scenery, in a heli-skiing adventure that few people have ever experienced.
