Kamchatka

 

Kamchatka is a 1,250km-long peninsula located in Russian Far East. It is a unique land where fire meets ice.

Kamchatka is extremely geologically active and has numerous volcanoes, geysers, hot springs — even a lake of acid. Nineteen of Kamchatka’s volcanoes constitute the “Volcanoes of Kamchatka” UNESCO World Heritage Site,

Despite its vast size, the peninsula is home to just 400,000 people, of which over half live in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and nearby communities (including Yelisovo).

The peninsula’s vast uninhabited wilderness provides diverse outdoor and adventure opportunities.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
