Kamchatka travel holding "Krai-Purga"

Т.05. Rafting on the Bystraya River

Available: July – September.
Duration of the programme: 3 days
Car trip: approximately 330 km
The length of rafting: 70 km


    The Kamchatka Krai is rich in mountain and lowland rivers. As a rule, there are numerous rapids, but in lowland the flow turns unruffled and breaks into winding channels and armlets.

    The most attractive fact is that the beds of Kamchatka rivers lie in wild virgin places with taiga woods all around, rocky banks and black sand beaches. There are challenging mountain areas for professional risk-takers and mixed, relatively calm areas for the beginners.

    We offer a 2-day rafting tour on the Malkinskaya Bystraya River with three rapids of the second level of complexity. This rafting tour is designed for people who have not been satiated with white-water rafting yet. However this seeming simplicity may be deceptive, so that experienced raftsmen should not disregard this tour. Qualified guides will always be en route and provide perfect security.

    You will appreciate the beauty of kamchatka nature, bathe in thermal hot springs, enjoy riveting fishing and try genuine kamchatka fish soup. If you are lucky, you will have the chance to bump into the master of Kamchatka - the brown bear.
