Training camp in Turkey

Training camp in Turkey

Slalom course on the river Firtina is located 70 kilometers from the Georgian- Turkish border in the Ardesen city. This place is the main training base of the Turkish slalom team. In  autumn and winter this place is popular among the teams from other countries. Due to the warm climate and close proximity to the sea, you can practice here almost all year long. The Firtina river is also the main rafting center in Turkey, and the upper sections are interesting for kayaking from  class II to IV. We plan on doing one of our training camps in the city of Yusufeli, where the second white water slalom course of this region is located. High in the mountains on the Barkhal River (the tributary of Chorokh) there is a cozy slalom base with all amenities.
