Welcome to the wilderness where adventures begin and roadmaps end. Welcome to Kamchatka. What is so special about the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia? It is the one of most eastern parts of the country, but in geological terms, it is where different parts of the earth literally come together. Kamchatka is home to over 30 active volcanoes . It’s no wonder these majestic giants contribute to the region’s six UNESCO World Heritage sites. Equally as stunning are the 90 geysers and numerous hot springs that make up the 6km Geyser Valley. The second largest concentration of geysers on earth, only accessible by chopper, this natural gem remains a virtually untouched region of raw geothermal power. The Kamchatka Peninsula is the ultimate destination for travelers seeking a once in a lifetime adventure. It is a place of breathtaking beauty and unique wildlife, mixing striking scenery of mountains, tundra, forests and rugged coastline.
Kamchatka is a pure heaven for fly fishermen around the world. Fishing in Kamchatka is something very special, it contains probably the world’s greatest diversity of salmonid fish. Most of the rivers host huge runs of anadromous fishes such as all five species of pacific salmon, char, dolly varden, steelhead and white-spotted char (an eastern Pacific species of char found only in Kamchatka). Depending on what river and what time of the season you wish to visit Kamchatka, these species can all be found in the rivers of Kamchatka. Most attractive fishing in Kamchatka is fishing for big rainbow trout and white-spotted char (Kundja). Rainbow trout grow very big and aggressive. You can fish for rainbows on the surface or under. Kamchatka fishing for rainbow trout is class!
