Trekking in Far East Russia - the UNESCO World Heritage-listed volcanoes of Kamchatka
Trekking through the remote, relentlessly beautiful wilderness of Kamchatka is far flung travel few have yet to experience. But, all who have proclaim it an outdoor adventurer’s paradise. The restless Peninsula’s earth, with its creeping glaciers, high rim volcanoes, lava flows, bubbling mud pools and steamy-sulphur vents, relaxes through folds of sub-alpine pasture, lowland savannah and pristine birch forest before wrapping round the Pacific and high-country lake shores in a veritable Eden of plant and animal life. Panoramic views of pristine landscape, grizzly bears fishing for salmon, foxes pouncing through spring snow, foraging reindeer, rutting moose, wolves, wolverines, ever-watchful marmots and exotic birds are all here in resplendent plenty. Over caldera ascents, river crossings, beach and forest walks, and relaxed, back-country basking, you’ll see as much as any enlightenment-era naturalist in this captivating land of fire, ice and unrestrained life.
