Ski Sky High in RussiaKamchatka Peninsula, Russia

Some may call a heli-skiing expedition through volcanoes an epic experience, others may call it bonkers. Home to the greatest concentration of active volcanoes in the world, Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula has remained relatively untouched by humans. In keeping with this, the guided expedition chartered by private helicopter is limited to just six avid skiers.

Take flight to the summits of blazing volcanoes, drinking in unencumbered vistas puckered by jagged peaks blanketed in undisturbed powder and the glowing red eyes of molten lava, and fang down up to 3000 vertical metres of staggering virgin slopes to beaches and hot springs at the base. If you’re lucky, you might find yourself racing down the mountain beside one of the local brown bears. Only the adventurous need apply.

The eight-day Big Volcano tour start from US$14,000.
