Kamchatka is a legendary peninsula, situated at the extreme east of Siberia.
Sandwiched between the Okhotsk Sea to the west and the Bering Straits to the east, this vast region was for a long time a forbidden military zone, not marked on any maps.
Since the 1990’s it has been possible to access this 370,000km2 territory (two thirds the size of France) to find an unspoilt wilderness, designated a "World Heritage Site by UNESCO" in 1996.
Kamchatka is home to 10% of the planet’s volcanoes, some of which are extremely active.
At 4750m, the Klychevskaya volcano is the highest summit in Kamchatka and Siberia.
This unique natural reserve is also home to the biggest brown bears in the world. They are particularly fond of the thousands of salmon found in the rivers during their yearly migration.
