Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula: Good to know
Located at the northernmost edge of the “Pacific Ring of Fire” Kamchatka is home to over 30 active volcanoes. Volcanoes such as 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. The valley is accessible only 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 nature" experience in a land few outsiders have laid eyes on.
