Kamchatka is without exaggeration one of the most spectacular regions in Russia. It occupies the area of 470,000 sq. km, which equals the size of France, Belgium and Luxembourg combined, and separates the Sea of Okhotsk from the Pacific Ocean. The mountain ranges stretch from the north to the south giving the peninsula the shape of a giant fish.
There are more than 160 volcanoes on the peninsula (29 of them are active), due to the fact that it lies on the Great Pacific “ring of fire”. Volcanoes and volcanic peaks, cyclones and underground heat created here a mixture of twenty climate zones and a great variety of flora and fauna. But the main attractions of Kamchatka are volcanic calderas, stone sculpture “parks” and lakes in craters, geysers and mineral springs, all in pristine condition.
And, not forgetting; incredible wildlife.
Take advantage of direct flights from Anchorage, Beijing and Tokyo to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. This makes access to the peninsula swift and easy with only one stop from Australia or the US. Ask us for details as each year new routes open.
