Russia: Kamchatka

Photogallery "Kamchatka"

For those of you who want to experience the real and wild Russian nature we have a two-week trip to Kamchatka, where you will be able to approach wild animals as close as it's ever going to get, observing them in their natural habitat. We will spend three days at the South Kamchatka Federal Reserve at the lake Kuril area watching numerous brown bears hunting here for spawning salmon.

Kamchatka is a real paradise - the flora and fauna of the Peninsula are indeed unique natural phenomena. We will meet lots of marine animals such as orcas, humpback whales, gray whale, fin whales, sei whales, minke whales, sperm whales, porpoises, sea lions, spotted seals, sea otters and fur seals, as well as a large amount of birds such as pacific gulls, pelagic cormorants, red-faced cormorants, kittiwakes, pigeon guillemots, thick-billed murres, common murres, old man, hatchets and horned puffins while cruising with a spacious catamaran along the cliffs and bays of the Russian Pacific coast.
