In the heart of Kamchatka

A tour to the very "heart" of Kamchatka — to its central part. 

You will see the highest volcanoes of Eurasia, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, make several ascents, visit a tourist town with hot springs and rafting on a beautiful rapids river.

The tour will be interesting, including for those tourists who have already been to Kamchatka and have seen popular places in the southern part of the peninsula, but would like to go back to this amazing land of volcanoes and geysers.

Tour organizer's comments

Special physical training is not required, but you will need some degree of endurance and determination to climb volcanoes

The load on the tour is average. If tourists are inactive and do not go to the mountains, then it may be difficult for them at first.

We recommend that you go on day trips in your region before the tour.
