This tour combines Kamchatka`s highlights such as brown bears, salmon, volcanoes and Pacific ocean with its inhabitants: whales, sea lions and white - shoulder eagles. We will first take you on a real adventure by bringing you to the famous Kuril Lake via Okhotsk sea shore through fishers´ villages and a green settlement Pauzshetka, with its first in Russia geo - thermal power plant and plenty of green houses where locals grow tomatoes, wine grapes and even papaya all year round. During your stay at the Kuril Lake you will learn about the habitat of Kamchatka brown bear in its natural environment, watch bear families bringing up their cubs, and with little luck you will see streams of sockeye salmon coming to the Kuril Lake for spawning.
And as you have might already though it would be an adventure enough, we will fly you out of brown bears´ kingdom to the Kamchatka´s most active and impressive volcanoes by Russian sturdy MI - 8 helicopter. During the flight you will observe the Souther group of volcanoes and land just next to Mutnovsky volcano.
After hiking Kamchatka´s volcanic landscape, we will intoduce you to Kamchatka´s sea world by taking you to the Russkaya Bay for a day trip, during which you can observe orcas, hump whales, Steller´s eagle as well as dine a là Kamchatka style: king crab, salmon soup and salmon caviar freshly cooked for you.
"The Earth forming, the tectonic plates shifting, the molten heart pulsing to get out. Kamchatka´s scale is what had blown my mind: it reconnects everyone who visits with the raw truth this Earth is bigger than any of us."
