Sarıkamış Trip

13.11.2017

We love skiing and snowboarding at all..! That was a great trip to Sarıkamış, thanks to its chilly climate, Kars (particularly the district of Sarıkamış) is also one of the most notable winter destinations in the country. With its fresh air, ski tracks for various levels that pass through pine forests, and, most importantly, with its legendary crystal snow, in recent years, Sarıkamış has become one of the country's most popular ski centers.
