The other end of Russia, Kamchatka, is certainly an extraordinary place. This wild remote land with a fantastic Nature is a part of the 'Pacific Rim of Fire', prone to volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
Kamchatka is known to Moscow schoolchildren as the back of the class. It is Russia's most remote province, a peninsula 1200 km long by 450 km across, and approximately the size of the U.K., which is bounded by the Pacific Ocean and the Bering Sea in the east and the Sea of Okhotsk in the west.
The trip is focused on exploring volcanoes. We are going to visit the areas of volcanic activity in the central part of Kamchatka peninsula (Tolbachik dale, Plosky Tolbachik volcano, Northern rupture) and in the southern part (Gorely and Mutnovsky volcanoes).
Main highlights of the trip
- Hot springs, fumaroles and other kinds of modern volcanic activity
- Meet local people
- Wild Kamchatka nature
- Kamchatka bears. They are not 'must see' on our trip, but a meeting can happen, whether we want it or not.
