Description

    The programme is level to any person who does not have a special training. It successfully includes many wonderful nature sites of Kamchatka and allows to take unpredictable weather of the peninsular into consideration, so it is very popular with tourists. According to the programme, the group gathers in the airport in Elizovo on the first day of the tour. A representative of the company meets the group at the airport. Transfer to a hotel in Paratunka resort area. Thermal water is the main feature of the area. A visit to the area of Mutnovskiy (2323 meters) and Goreliy (1829 meters) allows not difficult ascents and to watch volcanic activity. Memory of amazing scenery will last long. Not complicated rafting on the Bystraya (Malkinskaya) river surprises with pristine forests, possibility to see Kamchatka's bear and just rest and fishing. For those who are fond of fishing we would recommend to bring fishing gear. A bout excursion will show the most beautiful bay in the world - Avachinskaya bay, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and the Pacific. The hardest and the most important part of the tour - ascent of Avachinsky volcano, a "home" volcano, as it is called. 8-hour ascent will require patience and endurance. The final part - a helicopter excursion to the Valley of Geysers, situated in the territory of Kronotsky State Preserve. The Valley is hosted with a canyon with fabulous nature and was first discovered in 1941. It is a place, which is always attractive for tourists. During the flight you will see the beauty of volcanoes, mountain ranges and picturesque nature.
