Hiking to Kamchatka, 12 days
We invite you to join our hiking to Kamchatka, which is part of the “Pacific Ring of Fire”.
The main attraction of the Kamchatka Peninsula are volcanoes, which are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are not so many places on our planet where there are so many volcanoes at the same time. During our hiking trip, we will visit the extinct stratovolcano Vilyuchinsky (2,173 meters), as well as active volcanoes Gorely (1,892 meters) and Mutnovsky (2,322 meters).
We will visit one of the most famous and beautiful places of Kamchatka - the Zhirovaya Bay, located between the capes Krutoy and Razdelny. The water in the Zhirovaya river is cold and crystal clear. The hot springs of Kamchatka deserve special attention. We are going to visit Dachny, Voinovsky, Zhirovye and Vilyuchinskye hot springs.
