Kamchatka is a kaleidoscope of natural wonders, which have been deliberately chosen for contrasts. Here the white foam of the Pacific waves breaks on the black sand, the glaciers overhang bubbling mud pots, and thickets of cloudberry, honeysuckle, and honeysuckle are hidden in the stone-birch groves. The stretch of land between the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk, only slightly smaller than Italy, is home to three hundred volcanoes, over a thousand rivers and lakes rich in fish, and a population of brown bears and sea lions and sea lions nearly outnumber the locals. We will see Kamchatka’s wild nature, feel the power of its elements from earth, ocean, and air, relax in the warmth of its thermal springs, dance with Koryak shamans and taste caviar right on board of a fishing boat. We’ll feel the power of the true Edge of the Earth, where we can trace its origins better than anywhere else.
— how many active volcanoes are in Kamchatka and why they are called “hills”;
— what does the smoke of fumaroles look like, where orange streams flow and from what boilers of the thermal field seethe;
— how brown bears catch sockeye salmon in the volcanic Kuril Lake;
— why the Valley of Geysers is considered a natural laboratory and how Russian thermal springs differ from Icelandic ones.
