Verkhne (Upper) Opalskiye hot springs are situated in the valley of the Left Opala river. They consist of two huge gryphons located in deep craters. In the bottom of these craters there are colonies of algae through which thermal springs go up with the temperature of 74 °С. The water is too hot so it was decided to equip a special wooden bath. Springs flow out of the craters, get colder and fill the bath with water of comfort temperature.

Opala is the river of southwestern coast of Kamchatka with the length of 160 km. It’s heaven for fishers: all species of Kamchatka salmon inhabit Opala. It will suit both lovers of spinning and fly fishing. Objects of fishing: rainbow trout, silver salmon, whitespotted char, chum salmon, humpback salmon, and char.

The tour is designed for 3 days, but we can extend it upon request.

Rest at hot springs

Even in the height of summer mornings are chilly in Kamchatka. And there is nothing more pleasing than to get warm in a hot spring right after breakfast. We devote the whole day to nature: fish on the Opala river not far from the springs, take pictures with “the haul this huge!”, cook ukha soup made of fresh fish, and sunbathe. Apart from abundance of salmon, Opala is famous for rich fauna: bears, foxes and eagles can be met there. So you can try yourself in wildlife photography in addition to fishing.
