Experiences you'll have

Active tour to Kamchatka

Volcanoes Mutnovsky, Gorely and Avachinsky — these places are well-known to everyone who has ever dreamed of going to Kamchatka. In this journey, you will not just see them from the side, but will climb to the top, look into the crater and can to be truly proud of yourself.

 

But that's not all about this journey. What else is Kamchatka famous for? Bears and fish, of course. So, you will go rafting on the river, during which you can fish and see brown bears.

This route is for those who prefer to combine not only several places, but also several types of outdoor activities in one trip

Hiking and climbing, boat trip and rafting on the river, fishing and bear watching are waiting for you in this journey. If desired, for an additional fee, you can also take a helicopter tour to the Geysers valley or to Kuril lake.

All hiking routes will be light, without carrying the backpack. A few nights you will spend in a tent, but the dawns here are certainly worth seeing and will make you forget about any inconvenience.

We also recommend you the program "Bucket list journey to Kamchatka" — it does not include 3-days rafting, but there is a visit to the Tolbachik volcano, where in 2013 was one of the most powerful eruptions in Kamchatka over the past 100 years.

Testimonials

Fabienne Noll
Fabienne Noll 12 Сентября 2019

Over all, it was a very nice trip! Very good organized. The guides had a lot of experiences, so I felt always safe and cared for, which was important when camping in bear areas or climbing volcanos in bad weather conditions. Also the driver of our truck drove safe all the time on the bad roads. Also the local office did a good job: as I had my first night in a different place, you told me I have to make the way to the tour hotel by myself, but they also organized it for me without extra costs! I'm impressed by the service and friendliness! 

Kamtchatka itself is amazing! Unfortunately very weather dependent, hard to move around (really bad roads), very basic infrastructur (especially toilets, aka earth-holes, challenged me everytime) and millions of mosquitoes in some places... But the landscape and untouched nature is worth the struggel ;)

Thanks for your service, I can defenitely recommend your company and travels to Kamtchatka!
