Tour program


Transfer to Termalni Settlement
Change to snowmobiles

We meet at the appointed place with the rest of the group and drive to Termalni Settlement where we change to snowmobiles.


Transfer to the fishing spot

We transfer to the fishing spot, the Paratunka River or one of its numerous inflows, by snowmobiles. Depending on the remoteness of the spot travel time may take from 30 minutes to 1,5 hours.



We choose a place with better biting, drill a hole and start fishing. While we are waiting for fish we can warm up with hot tea and listen to our guide’s stories about Kamchatka and local traditions.

Ice fishing is a challenge that requires patience and endurance. Though winter in Kamchatka is not very frosty, but there are days when the temperature drops down to 30 ℃ below zero.

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


Return to Termalni Settlement
Transfer to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

While it hasn’t got dark yet, we collect our catch and ride to car park by snowmobiles, from where we get back to the city. We’ll arrive in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky by 7 p.m.
