Kamchatka peninsula trek, Russia

The landscape of Kamchatka is bleak and powerful, with towering volcanoes throwing up plumes of ash and smoke, and surreal terrain that has been twisted over time by fierce lava flows. A trek through this region of contrasts will take you over rolling pasture land, alpine tundra, glittering glaciers, huge lava fields, crater lakes, waterfalls, and snowy, conical peaks.

Lumbering bears, marmots, and foxes are not uncommon sights alongside the salmon-filled Asacha River. Looking down the steep rock walls into the caldera of the Mutnovsky volcano is a highlight.
