kamchatka peninsula

In the Far East of Russia, sandwitched between the Sea of Okhotsk in the west and the Pacific Ocean in the east, lies the 1200 km long Kamchatka Peninsula. In August 2019 I spent three weeks there and took part in a trekking tour with expedition character in the south of Kamchatka. In an area near the famous Kuril Lake I went on a six-day tour to explore the wild, rough and untouched wilderness. In addition, I spent some time at the Kurile Lake to observe brown bears and climb the Ilyinsky Volcano, which dominates the area of Kamchatka's deepest lake.
