It was annexed by the Cossacks in 1697. In the following forty years the native inhabitants were reduced from some 150,000 to only 10,000. Today, the native people make up about 2% of the population. After WWII the peninsula took on new strategic importance. It became a base for military airfields and home to Soviet nuclear submarines. No foreigners were allowed anywhere near. Fortunately that all changed in 1990 and today tourists are catching on to this region – albeit very slowly.  

There is minimal infrastructure – including roads - outside of Petropavlovsk which is why we use helicopters to get around. The pilot will fly you around the volcanoes for that very special photo of inside the crater. Importantly, to see Kamchatka properly and to participate in all of the activities, travellers on our small group tour require a certain level of fitness. It is not essential for everyone to take part in all activities but as this is a wilderness environment, we cannot guarantee supervised entertainment for those not taking part in the core activity. Come and see this ultimate wilderness before the world catches on!
