Kamchatka is a place where everyone must visit!

Kamchatka is a land of contrasts, wild and unique place. It is the land of volcanoes and glaciers, hot springs and boiling geysers, swift rivers, lakes and waterfalls. There are 414 glaciers and 160 volcanoes, 29 of which are active. Where else do you find yourself on a geyser field, rest in a hot spring with a view of the volcano and skate on the skis to the Pacific Ocean? The huge size of the territory can be compared with France, but there are only three cities. The sea, hills and trees are the true masters of the Kamchatka land, and it is governed by volcanoes. Everyone who once saw an eruption, even the weakest, knows: people here live only because the fire-breathing giants are merciful to them. The sun in Kamchatka is not a very frequent phenomenon, but the rest is abundant. Mighty and majestic Pacific Ocean. Mountains and volcanoes: from December to May, the ski season lasts, and the summer - the time of climbers. Fjords, as in New Zealand, and the taiga, as in the Amur region.  Swift rivers and springs with thermal water. Kronotsky Reserve with its unique ecosystem and the unique for Eurasia Valley of Geysers. For an avid tourist, Kamchatka is like a sip of cool water for the dying of thirst: everyone aspires to get here.

Here are just a few facts about this region:

  • The highest active volcano of Eurasia is Klyuchevskaya Sopka - 4850m

  • The highest Geyser Giant in the Valley of Geysers. Pillar of boiling water and steam reaches 30-40m.

  • The valley of the geysers exceeds all other geysers of the world in size and volume of water ejected

  • The highest tides (13 m) in the Penzhina Bay of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk

  • The hottest lake in Russia is Fumarolnoe (average water temperature + 50grad.)

  • The largest snow cover in Russia

  • The largest variety of climatic zones (about 20) per region

  • The largest salmon spawning site in Asia

  • One of the largest geothermal deposits in the world. Mutnovskaya HPP

  • The most ancient and the first microorganisms of our planet are the thermophiles of Archean

  • One of the most dangerous places on the planet is the Death Valley in the Kronotsky Reserve

  • The largest number of volcanoes. Their exact number is unknown. Taking into account all the ancient, destroyed, active and side volcanic "parasites" there are more than 5000 of them. Officially 160 (300) extinct, 28 active, 3 potentially active: Khangar, Khodutka and the Wild crest (you can add Kozelsky, Vilyuchinsky and some others) + calderas of super-volcanoes Karymshino (35km) and Uzon (9x12km).

  • Avachinskaya Bay is one of the largest in the world (2nd place) and the deepest in the world of natural bays, capable of accommodating the entire world fleet.

  • Lenticular clouds is a normal phenomenon in Kamchatka, for the rest of the world it is an extremely rare natural phenomenon.

Description of the tour:

Period of the tour: from July 25 to September 15

This trip leads to the active volcanoes of Kamchatka: Avachinsky (2741 m), Mutnovsky (2322 m) and Gorely (1829 m), the most accessible and favorite objects of tourist ascents.

The crater of the Mutnovsky volcano is remarkable for the most powerful fumarolic fields in Kamchatka, mud boilers and pulsating springs. At the foot of the volcano is the Mutnovskaya Geothermal Power Plant, which generates energy using the deep heat of the Earth.

The crater of Gorely volcano is striking in its size, regular cylindrical shape and depth, at the bottom tourists can see an acid lake of turquoise color and active fumaroles.

Volcano Avachinsky after the eruption in 1990-1991 continues active fumarole activity. Its nearest "neighbor" - Koryaksky volcano (3456 m) since December 2008 shows increased activity in the crater, sprinkling everything around with volcanic ash.

Helicopter excursion to the Valley of Geysers and the caldera of Uzon volcano (an unusual natural phenomenon occurred on Uzzone in summer 2009 - a geyser appeared), hot springs and a boat trip along Avachinskaya Bay will complement the impressions.
