Tour Overview

Of all kind of fishing, the best one surely is trophy fishing!

The River Bolshaya is accessible, full of fish and, most of all, holds a treasure. A trophy fish that every angler dreams to reel: the Chinook Salmon, also called King Salmon. It can be more than 180 centimeters long (6 feet) and weigh about 40 kilograms (90 pounds).

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced angler, this fishing trip will suit you well. Our seasoned guides will help you take to this activity that tends to be a bit of a gamble at times. And if you wish to try your hand at a professional level, a contest for the best angler – or for the luckiest! – will be hold. But you can be sure of one thing – this fishing trip won’t let anybody down without a catch!

Throughout this trip, you’ll experience all the aspects of Russian fishing. In the evening you’ll rest in the wooden houses of the fishing village and relax in Russian banyas.

Get ready to visit one of the most beautiful places of all Russia and become a salmon fishing enthusiast!

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.
