Tour Overview

If the brown bears of Kamchatka go into hibernation, it is not true for the peninsula, on the contrary! Kamchatka is worthy of its great volcanoes and remains very active throughout the year.

This trip offers you an opportunity to discover Kamchatka and enjoy the joys of winter at this faraway land.

Shortly after the arrival, you immerse yourself in an open bath of warm thermal water, in the village of Paratounka. You will then have an opportunity to repeat this experience on nature and appreciate the benefits.

You will approach Avachinsky volcano, one of the famous volcanoes of Kamchatka. At its foot, you will spend unforgettable moments, dog sledding and snowmobiling. Also, we will make a great snowmobile passage in the footstep of the Vilyuchinsky volcano.

Kamchatka is also the Pacific Ocean. You will walk on the shore and will be lucky enough to see a lot of different mammals that inhabit its water. Anyway, you can watch the impressive sea-lions that come to rest to the dock of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Bien que la météo ne soit pas formidable, je pense que les programmes de substitution n étaient pas à la hauteur, 3 fois en trois jours la visite du marché aux poissons, ça fait beaucoup. Nous avons été obligé de payer un autre organisme local pour effectuer la sortie moto-neige pourtant prévue au programme. Les guides étaient fort sympathiques et le Kamtchatka est un magnifique pays.
