Kamchatka: legends of the earth

why it's worth going to Kamchatka with Apatite Hills

Vacation in Kamchatka - a trip to the ends of the earth

It’s an amazing feeling when you fly for nine hours, as if to America, you land among the hills, and everyone is talking in Russian around you.

It is in Kamchatka that you feel especially acutely the scale of the country and, of course, the incredible power of the landscape. At the same time, the landscapes in Kamchatka are not as alien as, say, in Iceland. Once you get used to the fact that there are mountains around, and the ocean is around the corner, everything begins to seem familiar and familiar.

The valley of geysers, with all its splendor, is somewhat similar to a huge bathhouse, thermal baths of Paratunki, especially in the middle of a snowy winter – the most Russian entertainment that can only be imagined, the kekura rocks of Avacha Bay are like Alyosha Popovich, Dobrynya Nikitich and Ilya Muromets.

And if you are lucky enough to see a brown bear in its natural habitat, it begins to seem that you have fallen into a Russian fairy tale.

Except that the hills sometimes resemble Japanese engravings — they really are cousins of Fujiyama and her neighbors.

Among other things, Kamchatka is rapidly becoming one of the main gastronomic regions of the country. People always came here for the red game, in recent years Kamchatka crab has again, for the first time since Soviet times, become a serious gastronomic brand.

But there are also scallops, sea urchins, venison, sockeye salmon, coho salmon, shiksha, honeysuckle, cloudberry, volcanic blueberry — the ocean and taiga give birth to a rich palette of flavors.

Kuril Islands

We invite you to a unique expedition along the famous chain of volcanic islands, so that you can admire the blue surface of the ocean, black sand, white rocks, lush greenery of sea terraces and thermal springs, which were worshipped by the ancient Ainu

Ocean and river fishing

Here, in Kamchatka, even those who have never held a fishing rod in their hands before become avid fishermen! You don't even have to look for "fish" places: there is excellent biting on the peninsula at any time of the year, and the ocean and any river are overflowing with "living silver" — salmon, coho, halibut, pink salmon, sockeye salmon!
