Kamchatka is without exaggeration one of the most spectacular regions in the world. A land of volcanoes, fire and ice, active boiling springs, geysers, waterfalls and volcanic sculptures displaying a multitude of colours that took millions of years to create. There are over 400 glaciers and 189 volcanoes in this region, 29 of which are still active. The region is such a geological phenomenon it has created its own unique flora and fauna. The beauty of Kamchatka will capture you forever. A number of the regions we visit are on the UNESCO World Heritage List
So where is Kamchatka? Its shores are on the Pacific and it’s in one of the remotest places in the world! You will find it at the far Eastern tip of Russia beyond Siberia. Still interested? Look for a small peninsular jutting down towards Japan. The peninsula has two active volcanic mountain ranges extending from northwest to southeast divided by a wide flat area of tundra. The area is remote with practically no infrastructure. We will aim to climb four of the most interesting volcanic summits in Kamchatka: Avachinski (2741m), Ushkovsky (3903m), Krestovsky (4057m) and the highest Kluchevskoy (4750m) a perfect cone. Please note the final peaks attempted may vary according to conditions.
