Petropavlovsk – AVANCHINSKY BAY – ESSO

This tour is offered on a regular monthly basis from June through September. Let us know your desired departure month by clicking on the learn-more button below: we will match your preferences with the next relevant scheduled group departure. If you are still unsure about your desired departure date, then simply tell us a period or a season of the year and we will provide you a range of scheduled group departures: just pick up yours! 

Our scheduled group departures don't suit your plans? If you are travelling with more than 4 friends, you can set your own departure date: we will arrange a bespoke tour just for you for the same price per person advertised below. If you are travelling solo or with less than four companions, we will then organise a slightly more expensive tailored tour according to your time schedule and specific geographical preferences.


The following itinerary across Kamchatka is strongly focussed on Soviet heritage and ethnic diversity. In case you are more into classic attractions (geysers, volcanoes, rookeries) or particularly remote areas and/or unusual activities or even if you are just looking for an hit-and-run visit to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and its surroundings, we will easily meet your needs with a unique tour individually designed according to your preferences. Thanks to our deep knowledge of the territory and longstanding collaboration with independent local tour operators we are, indeed, able to offer you a wide range of tailored routes and bespoke itineraries across and beyond the vastnesses of legendary Kamchatka. We also regularly cater for biologists, conservationists, ethnologists, historians and documentarists alike interested in conducting field research in the region.
