This pioneering group tour uncovers the dramatic, lesser-known Kamchatka Peninsula on the far east coast of Russia. We know there is far more to Russia than just the titan cities of Moscow and St Petersburg, so our carefully designed itinerary gives you the opportunity to discover natural beauty and geological wonders that couldn't be further from the wealth and glamour of the capital. We'll take you to see all main natural attractions of Kamchatka - from snowcapped€tive volcanoes and bubbling hot springs to vast pockets of pristine wilderness - but you will also have the chance to delve into the traditional cultures of native peoples. Visit the Tolbachik area in Central Kamchatka 500km from Petropavlovsk, where the Great Tolbachik Fissure Eruption that took place in 1975-76 has left its mark; impressive new volcanic cones with hot summits, huge ash fields, hardened lava streams and ash-burned forests now cover the landscape. But we're all about giving you more, talk to a Regent Specialist about adding a helicopter excursion to the famous Valley of Geysers to your trip.
