This tour will take place in the prime summer wildlife viewing season, you’ll experience the incredibly rich of flora, fauna and geology of the region. The tour kicks off in spectacular style with a flight over the Ksudach volcano, followed by several days observing the salmon fishing bears of Kurilskoye Lake in the Kronotsky Reserve. We plan a helicopter landing at the crater of the Mutnovsky volcano before heading further north to see the new lava cones of Tolbachik volcano in Klyuchevskoy Nature Park. We’ll also spend time in the settlement of Esso, staying overnight with nomadic reindeer herders in their summer camp in the mountains.

Kamchatka Heli skiing tour take takes you to soaring ridges blanketed in untouched deep powder snow, and the majestic volcanoes of the Pacific Rim of Fire in all their white winter splendour.

The Mi-8 helicopter is the ultimate chairlift, and the volcanic slopes of Kamchatka are the ultimate freeride. As the chopper disappears from view, the sense of isolation, and the sheer silence of the mountains is profound.
