Kamchatka travel guide

KamchatkaThe land of brown bears and active volcanoes.

If the thought of scaling an active volcano, coming within metres of wild brown bears and swooping over pristine valleys and mountain ranges is your idea of adventure, then ditch the tourist roadmap and lose yourself in the isolated splendour of Kamchatka.

Here prehistoric volcanoes rumble and steam, wildlife thrives in dense forests and lush valleys. When you visit Kamchatka, you set foot in one of the few places on Earth not connected to the outside world by a single road. Welcome to a wilderness where adventures begin and roadmaps end.

Welcome to Kamchatka. Located at the northernmost edge of the “Pacific Ring of Fire,” Kamchatka is home to over 30 active volcanoes, including Klyuchevskaya Sopka, the largest in the Northern Hemisphere, and what many consider one of the world’s most picturesque, Mount Kronotsky. It’s no wonder these majestic giants contribute to the region’s six UNESCO World Heritage sites. Equally as stunning are the 90 geysers and numerous hot springs that make up the 6km the Valley of Geysers; the second largest concentration of geysers on earth, only accessible by chopper, this natural gem remains a virtually untouched region of raw geothermal power. The Kamchatka Peninsula is the ultimate destination for travellers seeking a once in a lifetime adventure in a land few outsiders have laid eyes on.
