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 teams from other countries. Due to the warm climate and 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.
