Superbe voyage malgré un climat hostile. Il faudrait préciser que des vêtements de pluie très performants sont nécessaire, car malgré nos capes de pluie et Kways nous étions trempés! La journée de transfert de 12 heures pour arriver au pieds des volcans en passant par la forêt mériterait d'être divisée en deux; A savoir un arrêt dans la pension privée avec bania ( très appréciée ) ainsi qu'un lit!

Fantastique séjour au Kamtchatka à tous point de vue: excellent groupe et guides enthousiastes et très attentifs. Paysages inoubliables. Ours apercus en faisant du rafting. Tour à recommander chaudement en rappelant que dans cette partie du monde, si en été le fond de l'air est bon en plaine, le temps peut changer rapidement et il pleut beaucoup et que dans le brouillard (fréquent) on ne voit rien

Kamchatka Coast is a wonderful trip professionally conducted on a seventeen hundred maritime miles of uninhabited coast. Everything topped my expectations: what I saw, the pervasive sense of adventure in the activities, the competence of the team (professional biologists and researchers) and the safety in which all activities were performed. One of my best trips ever.
