Kamchatka: 10 places that every tourist should visit

The Kamchatka Peninsula is not only “far from everywhere”. These are also unique natural landscapes, healing springs, hunting, fishing, and the ancient way of life and customs of local residents…

The Kamchatka Peninsula
Brought Souvenirs, photos and videos can always surprise friends and acquaintances, Kamchatka is not like any corner of the Earth. But the Peninsula is large, with an area of 270 thousand square kilometers.

Healing spring
How not to miss the most interesting things in Kamchatka? We will tell you about ten places that, in our opinion, should be visited by any tourist who has visited this remote and mysterious corner of Russia.
Valley of geysers, fantasy in reality
It is no accident that the legendary Land of Sannikov was filmed here in the eponymous science fiction film. The valley of Geysers is well known all over the world, but most people know it only from movies, photos, and articles.

valley of geysers
Real impressions are often stunning — a huge mountain valley is literally boiling, throwing out jets of steam and hot water.

A big bear came to “warm up”…
There is no such landscape anywhere on our planet, and if you manage to shoot a huge bear that came to “warm up” (in Kamchatka they are exactly like this), you will have a reputation for being a seasoned and brave traveler for many years!

You will have to get to the Valley of Geysers by helicopter
It is true that you will have to take a helicopter to get to the Valley of Geysers, but the journey to Mars is not an easy task, is it?
Klyuchevskaya Sopka-a volcano with an unpredictable character
According to travelers, Klyuchevskoy is a volcano with a terrible character. The highest stratovolcano on the Eurasian continent (a conical volcano) can at any time spew clouds of smoke, or even lava flows, and flying stones.

Klyuchevskoy-a volcano with a terrible character
So it is not necessary to go specifically “to the eruption”, having been near the Klyuchevskaya hill, you in any case have a chance to enjoy an unforgettable spectacle.

A stratovolcano can at any time spew clouds of smoke, or even lava flows, and flying stones
As for climbing to the top, we strongly recommend that untrained tourists do it on their own, without a local instructor. But to get to the Klyuchevskoy volcano is easy — from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky bus service runs to the village Keys.
Nalychevo, natural heat reserve
The Nalychevo nature Park is famous for its thermal springs, whose water contains silver, cobalt, silicon oxide, and a lot of other substances that are useful for humans.

In some sources (griffins), the water temperature reaches +75C.

Water contains a lot of useful substances and a comfortable water temperature for a person
And, what is important, these sources are located in incredibly beautiful, typical Kamchatka, places, which is easy to see by climbing the observation tower.

You can get to nalychev by helicopter from the main Kamchatka airport Yelizovo
To get to the Nalychevo on the helicopter from the main Kamchatka Yelizovo airport, the winter here can make an interesting trip on a snowmobile.
Avachinskaya Sopka-volcano in the accessibility zone
The Avachinsky volcano has a completely different character than the Klyuchevsky volcano described above.

Avachinskaya hill
Residents of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky call this volcano “home”. in good weather, you can admire it directly from the city. But it is more interesting, of course, to climb to the top, especially since such an ascent is available to people with almost any physical training and does not require special skills.

Climbing is available to people with almost any physical training and does not require special skills
At the end of a five-or six-hour hike, you will find yourself at an altitude of 2741 meters. Agree that the opportunity to look into the mouth of an active volcano, which last erupted not so long ago, in 1991, is worth the effort spent on climbing.
Khalaktyrsky beach — black Sands of Kamchatka
You should immediately warn that you can hardly swim on this beach, the waves of the Pacific ocean are too strong and cold, and the currents are dangerous to life.

Khalaktyrsky beach — black Sands of Kamchatka
But the very sight of the mighty and ancient ocean, framed by an unusual black volcanic sand — an unforgettable sight.

You can get to halaktyrsky beach from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky by bus or taxi, but experienced people advise you to overcome the distance of several kilometers from the city to the beach on foot and gain indelible impressions of the Kamchatka nature along the way.
Paratunsky thermal springs-rest for body and soul
And your body and soul will be able to get such a rest in just an hour’s drive from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Paratunsky thermal springs-rest for body and soul
Local residents recommend going to Paratunka in winter, the effect of bathing in a hot pool, when the snow is silvered around, will undoubtedly have a positive effect on your state of mind.

The tourist infrastructure of the paratunian springs is well developed
The tourist infrastructure of Paratunsky springs is well developed: there are several boarding houses and hotels, you can enjoy hot bathing for as long as you want. But even one bath is enough to feel a surge of energy and spiritual strength.
Kuril lake — a place where bears fish
Kuril lake was formed eight thousand years ago, at the site of a volcanic eruption, and it completely fits into the unusual Kamchatka landscape.

Kuril lake — a place where bears fish
From April to November, the most delicious fish of the salmon family — sockeye salmon-spawns here. millions of fish are sent here from the ocean to sweep up their eggs and die. Naturally, this amount of delicious food attracts Kamchatka bears to the lake.

These brown giants demonstrate an amazing skill during their fishing, and fans of photo and video shooting have a chance to shoot unique shots on the Kuril lake. But only with the use of long-focus optics-close to the bears during fishing (and in General) it is better not to approach.
Mutnovsky volcano, on skis – in the crater!
Kamchatka offers unique opportunities for fans of mountain skiing and the thrill associated with this sport.

Mutnovsky volcano
You can ski down directly into the crater of an active (!) Mutnovsky volcano, 80 kilometers from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
