Tour Details

Kamchatka is located in the northeastern part of Russia and surrounded with the Okhotskoye Sea, the Beringovo Sea, and the Pacific Ocean. It’s famous for its volcanoes, breathtaking landscapes, picturesque views, unforgettable traveling, and unity with nature.

The main center is the city and port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Although it’s the same age as Saint-Petersburg you will get an impression that people have been living here for no more than 50 years. Until 1990 foreigners couldn’t set foot in Kamchatka and even Russians needed a special permit to come. Now it’s open to everyone.

Kamchatka is a popular place for ecotourism that is easily explained with the uniqueness of Kamchatka’s nature and resources. It offers a wide range of extreme activities: mountain climbing, rafting, heli-skiing, trekking, diving, photo safari and etc.

Don’t forget to try famous Kamchatka dishes which are usually made of local fish like salmon!

Breakfast. Transfer to the Mountain Vachkazhets (about 80 km from PKC), which is considered an extinct volcano. Trekking to the mountain crater with visit to the beautiful lake and waterfall. The mountain-mass and its environs are one of the most beautiful places on the primordial Kamchatka. The peak is divided into three main parts: Letnyaya Poperechnaya Mountain (1417 m above sea level), Vachkazhtsy Mountains (1500 m) and Vachkazhets Mountain itself. In the area of Letnyaya Poperechnaya, there are still two large volcanic craters that are probably the remains of the crater of the ancient large volcano. Lunch (picnic). Return to the hotel.
