The picturesque Kamchatka Peninsula is located in the far east of Russia – a true natural paradise. Unique impressions and experiences are awaiting, when you swing between volcanos, bears and geysers. The area is also one regions with the highest snow guarantee worldwide.

The on-site accommodation is in ‘Snow Valley’, making it the perfect starting point for the days ahead. Ski tours between 700 and 2000 meters altitude await you with breath taking descents. The absolute highlights of the trip when good conditions are Mutnovsky volcano up to 2,322 m, into whose crater a glacier flows, and the Gorely volcano, which is considered the most active volcano in the area.
