Nalychevo Nature Park is situated 70 km to the north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It is located in the valley of the Nalycheva river, faces the Pacific Ocean, and is surrounded by mountain ranges, active and extinct volcanoes.

This park is worth visiting because of many reasons: gorgeous scenery which combine volcanic, tundra and marine landscapes; rich flora and fauna. During the season of salmon spawning and berries ripening one has all chances to watch brown bear in natural habitat.

There are more than 200 thermal springs at the territory of the park, the biggest amount in Kamchatka. There are natural hot baths both with facilities and truly wild, but not the less beautiful. There are also cold narzan springs with taste equal to the Caucasian mineral waters.

Transfer to the bottom of the Avachinsky volcano
Climping up

Avachinsky is an active “domestic” volcano, altitude 2 741 m. Climbing doesn’t require special physical training, the whole route goes on the tourist path.

The crater of the volcano is taken up with lava plug, fumarole activity is sthenic. The view opening from the top is worth several hours of climbing: a tiny city spreads on the coast of Avacha bay, the endless Pacific is seen in the distance…

At the bottom of the Avachinsky volcano, at 900 m above sea level there is a tourist lodge where we’ll stop overnight.
