Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Airport — Halaktyrsky beach

    Meeting at the airport.

    On this day we will go to Halaktyrsky beach, where huge waves of the open Pacific Ocean await us, the black sand of an infinitely long beach, where the feeling that you are at the edge of the earth, where Russia begins, does not leave.

    The water in the ocean is not warm, but you can always wet your feet, but the bravest can swim.

    Here, in a convenient clearing among the coastal forest tundra, we stay overnight.

    Overnight in tents.

    At dawn, with favorable weather, you can see how the sun rises from the horizon of the water surface of the endless ocean.

    Dinner on the ocean (lunch, if necessary, on your own at your own expense).

    In the evening of this day, hiking and camping meals begin (the exception is the cafe in Milkovo during the crossings). We cook in the camp kitchen in the order of duty for 2-3 people with the assistance of an instructor guide. It's always hotter for breakfast and dinner. Lunch — according to the circumstances (during the ascents, definitely a snack, during the day — a hot lunch, during the transitions, most often a snack, but a hot lunch is also possible).
