Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city tour and a journey to the Pacific Ocean coast and Khalaktyrsky Beach.
The tour unfolds a captivating story of the heroic past of the Petropavlovsk city: defense against the English-French squadron during the Crimean War, liberation movement during the Civil war, the heroic deeds of the Kamchatka citizens who liberated the Kuril islands. The tour will take you to the monuments honoring the discoverers of Kamchatka, its defenders, Great Patriotic war heroes. You will also visit the viewing platform at the Nikolskaya Sopka (Hill).
Halaktyr beach is located on the eastern coast of Kamchatka, not far from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. A distinctive feature of this beach is black volcanic sand – a rare phenomenon caused by constant volcanic eruptions on the peninsula. Lava and slag flows pour and freeze on the slopes and neighboring territories. And the fast rivers that originate in glaciers erode this mineral-rich rock year after year and carry it into the ocean. And then, with each wave approaching the shore, small particles of volcanic origin are carried out and remain on the coastal strip. To date, the thickness of black sand reaches 20 meters, and the coast of the Halaktyr beach itself has stretched more than 30 kilometers.

Ocean walk begins in Avacha Bay. This is one of the largest harbors in the world – in size it is second only to Guanabara Bay, on the banks of which stands Rio de Janeiro. And at the exit from Avacha Bay, which can accommodate the entire world fleet, an impressive view of the famous Three Brothers cliffs opens. According to legend, once they were living people who got in the way of the tsunami. They saved their loved ones from disaster, but they themselves were forever petrified, and still stand waist-deep in water. Next you will find access to the Pacific Ocean. If you are lucky, you will encounter seals, whales and killer whales. If not, don't be discouraged – ahead of Starichkov Island, on which thousands of seabirds nest. Here you will find fishing in the open ocean and a lunch of fresh fish with a tasting of Kamchatka crab.

The Tolmachevo Lake and Apachinsky Hot Springs tour.
Tolmachevo Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in Kamchatka. It was formed as a result of the collapse of rocky rocks in the river, which blocked the water outlet, thereby forming a backwater. The most surprising thing is that sockeye salmon, which at the time of the collapse spawned in the lake, and failed to leave the spawning place due to the collapse, remained in a closed reservoir. Fry hatched from eggs, which grew up in full-fledged individuals, then new and new, and for many years the fish from sea turned into freshwater. Scientists called this unique species Kokan, and to this day it is found in Tolmachev Lake. With luck, you can see bears and enjoy salmon spawning..

Kurilskoe Lake is one of the largest salmon spawning grounds not only in Kamchatka, but also throughout the world. Sockeye salmon comes here along the Ozernaya river. When the fish goes to spawn, the water literally boils! The number of salmon rising for spawning reaches 8 million individuals. Such an abundance of fish attracts bears to the shores of the lake. Usually these predators avoid each other, but during spawning, salmon gather together by the lake. At the same time, you can observe up to 15-18 bears from a safe distance.
