Kamchatka Peninsula is without exaggeration one of the most spectacular regions in Russia. Long isolated by geography and politics, Kamchatka and its natural wonders are virtually unknown in the West. Few Americans have fished in its pristine rivers, climbed up or skied down its volcanoes, kayaked in its rivers or experienced the warm hospitality of its people. The peninsula literally percolates with geothermal activity, hosting 29 active volcanoes, Geyser Valley, the second largest geyser field in the world, Uzon Caldera and countless hot springs. Dramatic landscapes, unique flora and fauna, and pristine rivers make Kamchatka a mecca for adventure travelers, flyfishermen and photographers.
