Kamchatka

The remote Kamchatsky peninsula, a 10-hour flight from Moscow, is a wilderness roughly the size of Germany, Austria and Switzerland put together. Once a military zone forbidden even to Russian citizens, Kamchatka is now one of the world's last and largest natural sanctuaries. Boasting around 300 volcanoes, one bear to every thirty human inhabitant, hundreds of thermal springs, 100,000 lakes and rivers, rare eagles, and abundant reindeer, moose and wolves, eco-tourism the region's main industry.

Situated on Kamchatka Peninsula and enclosed by mountains in the north and the ocean in the south, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky  is the second-largest city in the world that isn't reachable by road. Those that do make it this way, however, are treated to some particularly beautiful scenery in the form of huge snowcapped volcanoes overlooking the city, as well as the Avacha Bay's rugged and diverse terrain stretching into the north Pacific Ocean. Day-trippers using the city as a hub to explore this area of Siberia can find enough attractions, activities, restaurants and bars to fill-up their itineraries for a few days, with a number of museums, galleries and markets found around the city center. We can offer a range of excursions taking advantage of the natural beauty of the surrounding area, such as hiking, cross-country skiing, boat trips and ice skating.

Avachinsky, Koryakskaya Sopka and Kozelsky Volcano

The Soviet-style city set against the backdrop of the towering volcanoes is an iconic image; Avachinsky, Koryakskaya Sopka and Kozelsky volcanoes are all just a short drive away, with the highest reaching over 11,000 feet. Popular activities on the volcanoes include hiking, mountain climbing and downhill biking for thrill-seekers.

Lenin Square

Like most Soviet-built cities in Russia, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is home to its own Lenin Square, situated in the middle of town. A monument honors the ex-leader, and there’s also a statue of Jean Francois de la Perouse - the leader of an around-the-world expedition that sank en-route to Japan in 1787.

Mountain Skiing

Both locals and tourists like to take advantage of the snow in winter months (November – May) and head to the hills to take part in some extreme sports. The most popular place near to the city is at Krasnaya Sopka, where downhill skiing is the preferred choice and a range of equipment is available for hire.
