Kamchatka (peninsula in the far east of Russia) was born of fire, like the Earth itself. Kamchatka has never seen quiet - its history is one of continuous, violent rebirth. It is the most active area of our planet where volcanic activity manifests itself in all its beauty. Almost everywhere the skyline is contoured with volcanoes. It composed of more than 160 volcanoes, 29 of which are still active. In addition there is a multitude of thermal and mineral springs, geysers and other phenomena of active volcanism. The volcanic area of Kamchatka has been declared since 1996 a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Kamchatka is no doubt one of the most beautiful places you’ve ever seen in your life.
