Experience the Ultimate Winter in Kamchatka

Written by 56th Parallel

Even in winter, Kamchatka is steamy, fiery and untamed! See spectacular mountain peaks and pave your own snow-covered adventure down Kamchatka’s untouched volcanic slopes.

The Kamchatka Winter adventure encompasses the best elements of one of the most pristine and untouched spots in Russia. A mix of barren mountains, windswept coasts and lush forests and meadows, Kamchatka is a unique Siberian backdrop brimming with new discoveries at every turn. Known for its incredible natural landscape, brown bears and hot springs, winter is an ideal time to visit this snowy peninsula in the far east of Russia. Whether it’s wildlife watching, skiing down Kamchatka’s signature Siberian slopes or taking a helicopter ride over the peninsula, it proves to be the ultimate winter adventure for travellers.

One of the most remote and pristine locations on Earth, Kamchatka has slopes for skiers of every level, each uncrowded and with breathtaking views of the region’s incredible vastness. Seeing the peninsula is best done from every possible angle: whether it’s taking a helicopter ride over snowy peaks, or looking out from the comfort of a luxury resort nestled at the base of this rugged landscape.

Seeking a snow-covered adventure? Kamchatka winter visit is a must

Take a scenic helicopter ride over part of the peninsula towards the Geysers Valley and take a dip in one of the valley’s natural hot springs. Go dashing through the snow on a dog-sled, led by a team of  Siberian Huskies with the help of an experienced guide.

Make a day of mountain skiing at Gora Moroznaya, a premier ski resort, boasting excellent facilities and slopes for beginner, intermediate and expert skiers. Take a snowcat across the Avacha volcano and partake in wilderness skiing around the base of the mountain.
