Ski tour of the Kamchatka peninsula. 

Heliskiing on volcanoes

Heliskiing is a very special form of freeride, which gives almost unlimited freedom of movement. This means - the opportunity to slide on the wildest untouched snowy slopes.

Heliskiing in Kamchatka is different from everything you've ever experienced.


  The ski area of Kamchatka has almost no boundaries and the number of slopes cannot be counted. The chain of mountain ranges and volcanoes stretches for more than 800 km.


The program includes: descent to the destroyed crater of an active volcano, stunning views and go down to the Pacific Ocean and skiing or snowboarding through active volcanoes. And after an active day, you can relax in the hot springs with thermal natural water, when outside temperature is below zero.
