The Avacha River originates at the altitude of 800 meters above sea level from a picturesque lake Upper-Avachinskoye situated at the bottom of the extinct Bakening Volcano. The river first flows along a narrow mountain valley, then on the plain and finally flows into Avacha Bay of the Pacific Ocean forming a river delta.

The length of the river is 122 km, basin square is 5090 km2.

Loach, char and East Siberian char are being caught in the Avacha River in winter. They are big fish and catching them requires skills and strength.

Tour program


Gathering of the group
Transfer to snowmobiles parking

We meet at the appointed place and drive to where we change to snowmobiles.


Transfer to the Avacha River

We drive to the Avacha by snowmobiles and then choose a suitable spot for ice fishing.


Ice fishing

First we get instructions on ice fishing and safety briefing on rules of conduct when on ice. Then we drill holes and start fishing. If you are not sure about your fishing skills, our guide will help with drilling and tackles.

Fish inhabiting the Avacha are strong, especially Arctic char and East Siberian char. That is why fishermen are required to have physical strength and skills apart from patience. You’ll have to struggle for pulling your catch out from the hole and not tearing the fishing-line.

After 3–4 hours of fishing we’ll have hot meal for lunch and continue fishing.


Return to the car park
Transfer to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

While it hasn’t got dark yet, we collect our catch and ride to the parking by snowmobiles, from where we get back to the city. We’ll arrive in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky by 6 p.m.
