Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Arrival in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. A trip to Halaktyrsky beach

    On the first day of the tour, you will land in Kamchatka after an hour—long flight - you will need to rest, acclimatize and get used to the new time zone. 

    Therefore, we will meet you at the airport and take you straight to the hotel.

Tour organizer's comments

It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the program includes climbing Tolbachik volcano and Gorely volcano. Although it does not have a climbing category, it still requires physical endurance, and during descents the main load falls on the knee joint. 

  • Tolbachik volcano.

The ascent and descent takes about 10-12 hours. 

The length of the route is about 20 kilometers.

The climb is about 1,500 meters. 

  • Ascent to the Gorshkov cone.

The height difference is about 300 meters, the ascent takes about 1 hour. 

  • A small descent into the lava caves in the area of the Zvezda cone.

There are no long crossings on the other days. There may be small ascents on some days, and the walking part can be up to 1 km.

  • Gorely volcano.

The ascent and descent takes about 6 hours depending on the pace of the group.

The one—way route is about 6 kilometers. 

The height sets are about 900 meters.
