Kamchatka discovery tour takes you to a land of sweeping beauty, from lofty peaks to deep valleys and natural hot springs.

There is no a corner of its peninsula lacking incredibly vast views and unique forms of Russian Far East flora and fauna. Whether you’re seeing the vast peninsula from the seat of a helicopter, the lookout point of one of Kamchatka’s many volcano trails, or from the hot spring waters of Paratunka, Kamchatka is undeniably breathtaking.

The Kamchatka Discovery tour takes travellers around, above and below some of Kamchatka’s most spectacular sights including the Avachinsky Volcano, the Bystraya river, the Dachniye hot springs, Mount Vachkazhets and Avachinskaya bay. Optional tour to Kuril Lake for brown bears watching as well as to Geysers Valley, both are available on the second day of the adventure. The optional tour to Kaynyran ethnic tourist centre is available on day 6 instead of rafting experience.
