Your autumn on the island of Sleeping volcanoes — Iturup

Iturup means "big salmon" in the Ainu language. The largest island in the archipelago of the Kuril Island range. 

Majestic volcanoes, 12 of which are active, are the "authors" of the created relief and the real attractions of the island: frozen rivers of lava flows, numerous lakes, including hot ones, volcanoes with craters filled with water, fumarole fields, beautiful rocks, waterfalls, mud boilers, thermal swamps and springs! 

We have collected the most popular of them on this trip to explore the island!
