J'ai apprécié l'ambiance bon enfant qui régnait lors de ce voyage, l'amabilité et le professionnalisme des guides. Les treks et le rafting proposés sont vraiment intéressants... même pas mauvais temps ! Par contre "accessible à tous" est un peu optimiste : les 1900m de dénivelé du volcan Avatchinski ne sont pas de tout repos... J'aurais aimé aussi avoir un récapitulatif du programme et du matériel à

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
