I fished with the "Best of Kamchatka" outfitter and it was beyond expectation. I have fished Alaska extensively and there is no comparison. These rivers see way fewer people in a season then the popular rivers and fly out streams in Alaska see in a day. We passed spring creeks they said have never ever even been fished. The mouse...

If you are a nature lover, Kamchatka is well worth a visit! Kamchatka offers vast, untouched wilderness with opportunities to see wildlife and landscapes like no other. And if you want to visit Kamchatka, Lost World is the way to do it. Infrastructure in Kamchatka is limited, so the support of a local operator can greatly simplify your trip (particularly... More

We did a 12 day Classic Kamchatka tour with Vision of Kamchatka. We thoroughly enjoyed it although it is not for everyone. We spent 4 days hiking up live volcanoes - seeing spectacular views, walking on still hot lava in places. We also rafted the river for 2 days and saw lots of bears (including at least 3 with cubs...

Wife and I visited Kamchatka with Lost World Tour 22 Jul to 31 Jul 2015. They deserved five stars. Bears: I had 53 sightings of bears on my birthday alone. Volcanoes: I wasn't new to volcanoes, having previously walked mt. Etna twice and been to Vulcano (Aeolian Islands), still I found the ones we visited breathtaking. Personnel: Nice and responsive...

The aim of this review is confute the huge list of stereotypes about Kamchatka. Before having been there, I thought that it was one of the most difficult places to travel; afterwards, it was quite difficult, but the only reason was the lack of information on the internet about Kamchatka. Had I found a review like the one I am... More

It was my second trip to Kamchatka. September 2014. It was sunny weather every day, only one day fog. Great waves on Halaktyrskiy beach. Very consistent beach-break, water ~10 grad celsius. No Hotels on the beach, but you can sleep in camping in tent. September - the best time to visit Kamhatka for surfing. sorry for my english))

Kamchatka is beautiful with its volcanoes and mountains, Avacha Bay and the Pacific Ocean. If you go there, things to do would be: visit to valley of the geysers, Paratunka hot springs and, of course, fishing. There is not much to do in the city of Petropavlovsk, if you don't have anyone there. But... Take a taxi and drive on... More

This was an experience of a lifetime. The trip delivered on seeing the bears, active volcanoes, awesome hiking, rugged country, spectacular views from the helicopter and mountain tops. The boat cruise into Avacha Bay with the seafood lunch was really nice. The tour of the Volcanology Institute was interesting. Our guide, Artyom, was brilliant - knowledgeable, fluent English, sense of... More
