Itinerary Kamchatka Photo Tour

Day 1 Arrive in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia

Arriving in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky where we will start the Kamchatka photo tour. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is the administrative, cultural and industrial centre of Kamchatka and home to around 180,000 people. It is a remote city with little infrastructure, in a dramatic and beautiful setting; built on a series of high hills on the Pacific harbour of Avachinskaya Bay, it’s surrounded by a chain of five towering volcanoes, two of which are still active.
After a short city tour, depending on the weather we can organize sunset shooting at the ocean or from Mishennaya hill with the view at Petropavlovsk.

Day 2Avachinsky Gulf

We’ll spend this day cruising the marine wildlife-rich waters of the bay (approx 10h), a remote and spectacular cove on the south-western side of the Avachinsky Gulf.
Regarded as one of the most pristine natural areas in the region, Russkaya Bay resembles an Arctic fjord, with crystal clear waters ringed by forested hills and snow-dusted mountain peaks. As well as taking in the scenery and serenity of the bay, we’ll be on the lookout for Russkaya’s wild inhabitants in the air and sea, including seals, sea lions, otters, Steller’s sea eagles and an abundance of fish and birdlife. With a little luck, we might even be able to witness orca whales and dolphins breaching the surface.
You’ll try fresh-caught fish, crabs and sea urchin on board. After a full day on the water, we’ll head back to our vehicle and drive back to the hotel.

Day 3Mutnovsky

Day 6Kozyrevsk

Today begins with a full day’s journey, in the middle of our Kamchatka Photo Tour, to a typical Russian village of Kozyrevsk. We’ll cover a total distance of approx 450km – the very exhausting drive is on unsealed roads takes roughly 8 to 10 hours. Along the way we pass the old Cossack village of Milkovo where we stop for lunch and a stroll around the village to get a feel of typical Russian rural life.

From here we head further to the wilderness along the banks of the Kamchatka River, Kamchatka’s largest river, which runs northward through the central valley of the peninsula. On arrival to Kozyrevsk we will stay for overnight in very basic wooden cabins. Enjoy real Siberian sauna (banya) and a stunning night starry sky.

Day 7Klyuchevskoy Nature Park

Klyuchevskoy Nature Park was registered into the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage List in 1999. It covers an area of 376,000 ha with Eurasia’s most grand and active Klyuchevksaya group of volcanoes in its centre. It consists of 13 volcanoes, including 4 active ones (Klyuchevskoy, Plosky Tolbachik, Bezymyanny, Ushkovsky) and 9 extinct ones (Kamen, Krestovsky, Ostry Tolbachik, Ovalnaya Zimina, Ostraya Zimina, Bolshaya Udina, Malaya Udina, Sredny, and Gorny Zoub).

Travelling further from where we stayed overnight, we arrive to the “Dead Forest” – an area that was destroyed by enormous eruption between 1975 and 1976.
The territory around turned into a burnt desert, lakes and rivers disappeared, and the animals that had survived left the area for the best. Devoid of life, the ancient larch trees here are now eerie skeletons of their former selves, surrounded by a burnt desert landscape and set against the backdrop of the magnificent Tolbachik.
