Valley is a must. You actually have to visit this place. Places were extremely cool. We did excursion with company named Край. Despite place is really exciting service was not so good. We had 4 hours delay and we were waiting for helicopter in a pretty cold place. After this we had only 2 stops, not 3 as it was... More

Gorgeous scenery - 3 stellar locations visited on the helicopter excursion! We are glad to have done it for sure, but there were definite frustrating aspects to the tour... 1 the weather had prevented the helicopters taking the tour for the whole week prior so that meant all the eager tourists in Kamchatka went to the same places that day...

It is the one of the most beatiful places I've ever seen. It's hard to explain how spectacular it is. You should see it yourself. The only one disadvantage is a price of way there. You can get there only by helicopter and it is expensive. But it's worth paying for it.

This is an expensive tour but definitely a must! The Kronotsky Reserve is a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site called "Volcanoes of Kamchatka". We booked our tour through "Kray" email them at kraytour@mail.ru. The phone number is 8 (415-2) 48-44-61. The office staff is very friendly but probably only speak Russian. They do have guides on staff that... More

This is a place to die for! You can only get there by helicopter. You need to be with a guide and stay with the guide on the trail all the time. If you go by yourself, you can get lost, fall into hot boiling water or become a dinner for brown bears. If you do everything right, you will... More

Probably one of the most expensive day trips we did. 750 USD per person and you need at least 18 people to join the ride before the helicopter starts. The helicopter flight is an experience and the pilot flies circles over the volcano area so that it is doesn't matter which side you sit. We were lucky as this was... More

There are like 4 places on Earth with such active geyser activity (Iceland, New Zealand, Kamchatka and Yellowstone). I've only been to Yellowstone and the geysers there are much more numerous and impressive. Part of the valley was destroyed by nature 10 years ago, another part - early 2014, there is really not much to see left. I mean, if... More

We did this tour on 7th August, 2013 and the cost of the trip ( USD 1000 per person) was quite steep! It was a helicopter tour and luckily 7th August was a clear sunshine day and the helicopter was airborne at 8 AM. The heli flew over some " active volcanos " and after an hour, it landed at... More
