Our names are Joanna and Musa Saltik. We are a Polish – Kurdish married couple. We met during an expedition on Ararat. Joanna was a participant, and Musa was a guide:) We live in Poland but in the season we stay in Turkey and organise expeditions in the mountains and trips to interesting places. We both like hiking in the mountains and riding a mountain bike.
About the company
Our company “ARARATTREK.PL Joanna Saltik” was set up in 2012 on the basis of our tourist passion and our whole team’s long-standing experience in mountain expeditions. The directness of activities is what makes us different among Polish companies, we don’t need to make contact with partners in Turkey as we can be our own partners. We have our own transport, horses, guides and cooks. We speak Kurdish and Turkish, as well as Polish, English, Russian and German.
Our team is the Saltik family, typical Kurdish mountaineers, who have lived in the mountain area – the Ararat slopes for many generations. Currently on the Ararat slopes in the summer you may meet four generations of the family. We have our own transport, horses and guides, so we are independent. Our prices are low because we do not cooperate with local trekking agencies that hire horses, cars or guides as we have it all. We act directly.
