Kamchatka delight: heli-skiing with snowmobile casts

Is it possible to see the maximum in Kamchatka in just a week? You can — and it's not difficult at all! This tour is a combination of heli—skiing, snowmobile rides and helicopter drop-offs. 

We will make dizzying descents to the coast of the Pacific Ocean, where our emotions will be enhanced by a real Kamchatka lunch with wild salmon and red caviar. Swimming in the hot thermal pool under the open sky will help us to prolong the pleasure and relax after a busy skiing.
