Around the Tolbachiks. Hiking and rafting

One of the most interesting hikes in Kamchatka, taking place among the highest volcanoes of Eurasia — the volcanoes of the Klyuchevskaya group. 

The hike is comparable in beauty to the famous trekking around Annapurna. The route starts at the foot of the Klyuchevskaya Sopka and Kamen volcanoes, which makes it possible to observe the highest volcanoes very closely. And at the end of the tour, you will find hot springs in Esso and rafting on a beautiful and interesting rapids river.

The tour is conducted with the gathering of a group of 7 people or more. Leave a request to find out how many participants there are at the moment.
