Alpin TURKEY

Alpin Turkey are the Turkish mountaineering specialists. We were founded by two official mountain guides and ski instructors: Mustafa Tekin and Yıldırım Beyazıt Öztürk.

 

In 2000 we were certified by the Turkish Mountaineering Federation and in 2011 by the International Ski Mountaineering Federation.

We are also certified in 1998 as mountaineering instructors by the Turkish Mountaineering Federation. Since 1998 we have been part of the Turkish Mountaineering Federation Rescue Team.

Alpin Turkey is the most experienced company in organizing ski and trekking tours throughout in Turkey; especially on Mount Ararat, Mount Kaçkar, Mount Süphan and also Mount Damavand in Iran.

We are based in Erzurum, the highest city in Turkey surrounded by Palandöken Mountain Range, the biggest ski resort in Turkey which hosted the University Olympic Winter Game in 2011.

As we have organized tours on Mount Ararat since it reopened to the public in 1998, we have developed excellent contacts with the local people who work with us, taking care of the practical details (cooks, porters, and those who look after the horses which carry our equipment).

Our guides speak English. French and German translators are also available.
