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.

You will stay in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the capital of Kamchatka.

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.

Sport lovers will be delighted to go skiing at the station "Gora moroznaya" (Frosty Mountain) and to have a choice between downhill skiing, snowboarding or skiing.

You will approach Avachinsky volcano, one of the famous volcanoes of Kamchatka. At its foot, you will spend unforgettable moments , dog sledding and snowmobiling.

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.

Merci de votre critique. Votre témoignage nous permet d'améliorer la qualité de nos services. Initialement, le programme du voyage prévoyait l'excursion en motoneige au pied du volcan Avatchinski. Pourtant ce jour là la météo n'était pas favorable et selon votre accord, cette visite était remplacée par une autre mais avec considérablement plus de trajet en motoneige. D'où vient la différence de prix. Je compte sur votre compréhension.

j'ai apprécié le sérieux et le professionnalisme de baikalNature. Les formules proposées correspondent à ma recherche d'authenticité tant dans la déouverte des grands espaces que dans la rencontre avec les habitants. Un atout de BaikalNature; pour moi qui ne parle ni le russe, ni l'anglais c'est leur parfaite maîtrise de la langue française. Un commentaire sur mon séjour au Kamtchatka en hiver, pour

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
