Where to Go at Kamchatka
|Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky – the capital of Kamchatka and the only city on the peninsula.|
|Paratunka – the village near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city famous for the hot water springs.|
|Hot Springs at Mutnovskaya Thermal Geyser Station — more accessible than the Geyser Valley as you don't need a helicopter to get there. The advantage is that it's still a pretty wild place, so unlike New Zealand or Iceland (where you have to walk around in designated areas on the wooden p athways) you can feel yourself right in the middle of the action. Watch out though as it's hot springs after all.
|Volcanoes – Avacha, Vilucha, Goreliy, Mutnovsky and many others.|
|Avacha Bay – the bay of the Bering sea where Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is situated.|
|Valley of Geisers – the main sight of Kamchatka. Small area in the mountains filled by the geisers. Accessible by the helicopters only.|
Khalaktyrsky Black Volcanic Sand Beach — a beautiful beach, which is the main surfing hot spot of Kamchatka. Volcanic rock, wilderness, view on the snow peaks of volcanoes even in summer. There are two great surf camps: Snowwave and Quiksilver Surf School.
|Uzon valley – the remains of ancient volcano form now the valley with the unique nature.|
|Nalychevo valley – the beautiful nature reserve in the heart of Kamchatka.|
