Vachkazhets is an ancient volcano, destroyed in the result of eruption and divided into three distinct parts: Vachkazhets Mountain (1556 m), Letnyaya Poperechnaya Mountain (1417 m), and Vachkazhtsi, or Dvuzubka Mountain (1509 m). There are two large volcanic circles in the area of Letnyaya Poperechnaya Mountain, which are the remains of the whole crater of that ancient volcano.

Vachkazhets in summer is one of the most picturesque places in Kamchatka. In winter the volcano offers vast expanses and sharp snow-covered rocks, which attract skiers, snowboarders, and snowmobilers.

Tour program


Gathering of the group

We meet at the appointed place, get acquainted with the group, check the gear and depart. At first we take the main road, but later we switch to snowmobiles. We undergo briefing about safety and driving a snowmobile, and set off to the mountain range.


Excursion at Mountain Vachkazhets

The route to the bottom of an ancient extinct volcano leads through the Nachikinsky Pass, birch-tree forest and Lake Takholoch. 

Mountains Vachkazhtsy, Letnaya Poperechnaya and the Vachkazhets itself will appear before you in all their glory.


Transfer to Letnaya Poperechnaya Mountain

There we visit an old destroyed crater and rocks of the Vachkazhtsy, which has the second name of Dvuzubka (Two Teeth). Enjoy the silence and charming outlook of snowy mountains, have a walk and take some memorable pictures.

During spring months freeride lovers can ski or snowboard from the slopes. The possibility to do it depends on the snow surface and weather conditions. Ask for details when booking the tour.
