Snowmobile tour around Kamchatka peninsula
3−10 March 2019
There are approximately more than 15 millions kilometeres of wild unexplored land in Russia — more than anywhere in the world! Kamchatka peninsula is one of them, the place that leaves a trace in everyone's heart. I have visited 50 countries of the world, have been to 5 continents but I have never seen anything like Kamchatka. There is uncountable amount of volcanoes there, though it's definitely more than a hundred. Even while flying through the peninsula you would see high peaks of Koryaksky and Avachinsky volcanoes, that are still active. Also you will find the biggest volcano of Eurasia here — Klyuchevskaya Sopka, a very active volcano having erupted 4 times in the past 10 years. To add up, Kamchatka is famous for diverse fauna, local specialities, parks with hot springs and breathtaking views.

This time I am offering a very special tour. It is going to be week-long adventure: we will cover more than 250 km of wild snowy lands on snowmobiles (you will be riding yourself!) We will walk along the volcano black sand beaches by the Pacific, dip in hot springs of Nalychevskaya valley and climb up to the peak of Gorely volcano. Scroll down to check on details of the tour, that can become the adventure of your lifetime!
