This route will lead you to the central part of Kamchatka, the area of Klyuchevsky group of volcanoes where you will explore active volcanoes Ostry (“Sharp”, 3682 m) Tolbachik and Plosky (“Flat”, 3085 m) Tolbachik. Their merged cones created one common volcanic massif. In 1975-76 and 2012-13, the most powerful eruptions of Plosky Tolbachik volcano took place here. These eruptions rank as the Hawaiian type, with large volume of thrown-up liquid and fluid lava. Boundless slag fields and volcanic lava stiffened in whimsical shapes, dozens of volcanic cones create "lunar landscapes”.

Also in the trip program:

-          World-famous Valley of Geysers in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve;

-          Ascend the Avachinsky volcano (2741 m), one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. Its last eruption took place in 1990-1991. Stiffened lava filled a giant cup of volcanic crater. Active fumarole activity still continues. The nearest “neighbor” is Koryaksky Volcano (3456 m); its upper crater is on the stage of eruption since October 2008 until now.

-          Ascend the craters of Mutnovsky (2322 m) and Gorely (1829 m) volcanoes. This area is very attractive due to its relative close accessibility and numerous forms of modern volcanic processes that you can observe there. The last eruption of Mutnovsky volcano took place in spring 2000, eruption of Gorely volcano – in 1980.

Guests will also take curative baths in thermal springs and cruise along Avachinskaya Bay to the Pacific ocean.
