Explore vast + remote Kamchatka Krai (Russia) with an optional extension to Primorsky Krai on this 10 day exploration to Russia’s eastern most peninsula. Kamchatka Krai is home to volcanoes that are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Known as the OG ‘land of fire and ice’ the Kamchatka peninsula is home to over 160 volcanoes, with about 29 of them active; 6 of which are included in the World Heritage Site of the Volcanoes of Kamchatka. Home to an abundance of Brown Bears, the peninsula, due to its small population density and minimal development is also home to the Arctic Wolf, Arctic Fox, Anadyr Fox, East Siberian Lynx, wolverine and many others. It is also home to the world’s largest salmonid population.
Our main journey will include hiking and camping in the volcanic range, aerial tours over the volcanoes, visits to hot springs and attending the annual Alhalalalai Festival, a small indigenous people’s festival and dance competition. The journey will start and end in Irkutsk, Russian Federation.
An extension will be available to include 4 nights/5 days in Primorsky Krai which will focus around a photographic safari whilst searching for Siberian Tigers and Amur Tigers and Leopards.
