From the 17th to the 25th of February 2024
Our expeditions are always led by expert UIAGM / IFMGA Certified Mountain Guides
A ski mountaineering expedition to climb the great volcanic mountains of central Anatolia. Crossing the Taurus Mountains from south to east we ski on the highest peaks of the area's : Mount Embler 3723 m and Mount Erciyes 3916 m, whose summit dominates the whole Cappadocia.
Shipping over to let us know the Turkish mountains, it will allow us to get in touch with local traditions and customs and the great hospitality and generosity of the turkish people. During the last two days we’ll discover the spectacular and surrealistic Cappadocia lands, coming back to Ankara just in time for the last kebab and a nice relaxing bath in the Hamman before departure.
Private groups (min 6 pax) can choose different dates depending on their needs
CLIMATE AND SNOW CONDITIONS: In winter the temperatures can go below zero. In Central Anatolia the climate in late February is similar to the climate of our Alps in late March. At the bottom of the valleys quite mild but potentially very cold at high altitude. Usually, in the period of our trip, some sporadic snow falls are possible until low altitude. Generally, snow conditions at this time are still dusty on the northern slopes and settled and bearing on the south slopes.
