Introduction

Kamchatka is located in the far east of the Russian Federation and is one of the natural highlights of the country. Its volcanoes are placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List and a visit to this place is absolutely recommended, albeit not cheap. Kamchatka forms one of the most outstanding volcanic regions in the world, with a high density of active volcanoes. The combination of active volcanoes, glaciers, wildlife and beautifully located green mountains forms a landscape of great beauty. Wildlife includes huge variets of salmon and dense concentrations of sea otter, brown bear and sea eagle. Getting around Kamchatka involves some form of airtransport on top of 4wd travel. Usually, helicopters are used to get to some more remote parts, which definately is recommended but comes at a cost of course.
