Volcanoes of Kamchatka. Climbing Tour

We suggest you go on a comfortable tour of Klyuchevsky Park and the Southern Group of volcanoes. These places are interesting for their authenticity and remoteness from civilization.

Kamchatka is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, known for volcanic and seismic activity, which affects the appearance of the landscape on the peninsula. Let's see how the eruptions changed the earth around with their powerful explosions and lava flows. 

And we will also go on a sea cruise along Avacha Bay with a visit to the island of Old Men and Russian Bay.

  • The length of the route is about 20 kilometers
  • The climb is about 1,500 meters

Gorely Volcano
