We are the Swiss pioneer with our Russian partner! 15 years experience skitouring Kamchatka. Meanwhile, there are other providers in the Swiss market, which admittedly often copy our program and easily change.
The Kamchatsky peninsula, which lies at the eastern end of our neighboring continent Asia, has about 28 active and 160 dormant volcanoes, which become an extraordinary backdrop to your journey: The indigenous population, 200m high glacier wall in crater lake, descent into the interior of a volcano, moonlike landscapes where the soviets test the moon Mountain tundra, fumaroles, ash fields, view to the biggest stratovolcano of the earth, seemingly endless forests with the tree variety Steinbirke, a unique flora and fauna (if you are lucky, you will even see a bear or bear tracks!) and many more, Kamchatka a fascinating destination!
You will get a lot of fascinating impressions of volcanoes, ski tours on volcanoes (active and dormant). One of the highlights is the ski tour to the active volcano Avacha, with 2750m the highest point of our trip ski tour Kamchatka! One of the highlights is the ski tour in the (!) Mutnowski volcano, where we will pass hot mud pots, geysers and sulfur smelling fumaroles!
On this volcano – ski tour Kamchatka we will go over volcanoes and some mountain passes, sleep in guest houses and a hotel. A thermal bath in the open air provides the perfect holiday feeling. All the luggage will be transported by a snow vehicle that will bring us to the foot of the mountains in the snow valley again and again.
We will reach the snow valley and the very simple hut at Mutnowski volcano with our ‘Snowpanzer’, a converted three-axle military vehicle with a built-up passenger cabin, while driving over 4m of snow! These rides will never forget you – what an adventure!
