What is Kamchatka? There are a lot of legends about the uniqueness and exceptionality of this land. Kamchatka is a marvelous fairy tale with giant volcanos instead of dragons that spout fire and with magical waters of healing springs which are able to recover strength and restore health. Kamchatka has a great abundance of amenities: clean and limpid rivers full of valuable fish species; fantastic Martian landscapes; Earth breaks up and glowing lava; smoking fumaroles and acid lakes; obstinate geysers gushing out with a violent force; a rave of color and unique diversity of flora and fauna. Where else on our planet you can look inside the Earth and feel its pulse or feel as if you were an astronaut-discoverer? By the way, it was Kamchatka where the Soviet scientists tested the first lunar rovers.
Is not it a miracle to see all four seasons at a time – snow-covered peaks of volcanoes, snow patches on slopes of the mountains slightly touched with the sun, green meadows and boundless reaches of tundra of all colors of autumn?
For a long time Kamchatka has been a forbidden fruit and a pipe dream for tourists. In the Soviet era, the peninsula was closed for tourists for national security reasons and partly in order to preserve natural beauty. Severe snow-capped peaks, pure high altitude lakes, rivers full of salmons and thermal springs – all these charms of nature used to be accessible only to the inhabitants of Kamchatka. The rest could only admire them through the prism of televisions screens.
