As soon as you get to Petropavlovsk, we head out to the Omega, our floating basecamp where we’ll spend the first 4 nights (it’s also possible to spend all the nights on the ship).
We’ll then explore some of the bays along the Ring of Fire, sharing the landscape with seals, sea lions, toothed whales and fishing bears.
This voyage immerses us in the elements. We travel by water, earth and air – with fire ever present from the surrounding volcanoes.
A member of our team will be at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky airport to greet you and escort you to the private bus that will take you to the port.
Once everyone is on board the Omega, we head off to Petropavlovsk Bay or Avacha Bay, in the Gulf of Avachinsky, at the southeastern tip of the Kamchatka Peninsula.
Avacha Bay contains eastern Russia’s main port and is considered one of the most beautiful bays in the world. We then sail to the Shipunsky Peninsula, where we will spend the night.
We spend the first skiing day exploring the coast around Morzhovaya Bay.
After skiing up a lovely little mountain, we head down to the beach to clamber around a Japanese ship that ran aground. Then, we use the zodiacs and kayaks to get to Cape Morzhovvy, where we’ll be able to watch sea otters and sea lions (possible to go diving). At the end of the day we re-join the Omega in Zheleznaya Bay and sail round Shipunsky Point during the night so we wake up the next morning in Bechevinskaya Bay.
Climb Mount Snezhnaya, on the edge of Bechevinskaya Bay and overlooking the ghost town of Bechevinka, a former diesel submarine base that was abandoned in 1996. Lunch on the ship then visit to Bechevinka. During the night, the OMEGA sails south to Russkaya bay.
We start day 4 with a ski tour in Russkaya Bay (possible to visit Listvenichnaya Point in the zodiacs).
At midday, the MI-8 will pick us up and take us to the top of some great descents on Viliuchinsky Volcano (2173 metres) and Mutnovsky Volcano (2322 metres).
We wake up in Vilyuchinskaya Bay and do a ski tour either here or in Sarannaya Bay. We then sail back to the port of Petropavlovsk, in Avacha Bay. A bus transfer takes us to the comfortable, 3-star Antarius Hotel, where you can relax in the sauna and take a dip in the heated swimming pool.
After a copious breakfast, at around midday we board the helicopter and fly to the top of Avachinsky Volcano (2751 metres) for a long descent down its south face. Today we get up close to the giant Koryasky Volcano (3456 metres), which has dominated the horizon throughout the trip. Additional helicopter drop offs may be possible (not included in the package). Night at the Antarius hotel.
We end the trip with a final day ski touring on the slopes of Sherelshik. That evening, back at the hotel, we get together for the final dinner of the week.
Morning transfer from the hotel to the airport.
