The Kamchatka Peninsula is one of the most active volcanic regions along the Pacific Ring of Fire. At least a dozen or more of all volcanoes there have currently active vents.
A majority of the volcanoes are composite stratocones, and the youngest are located along the eastern half of the peninsula. Kliuchevskoi, one of the most active and renown volcanoes in the world, dominates Kamchatka's main cluster of volcanoes: the Kliuchi Group.
Two major volcanic ranges lie in a north, north-eastern line, the older, less active range occupies the central and western half of Kamchatka. The younger, more active belt begins at the southern-most point of the peninsula and continues upward along the Pacific coastline. Kamchatka's immense volcanoes, calderas, lava flows and ash deposits are testament to this region's volcanic nature.
Kamchatka is the most spectacular region in Russia where wildlife nature was preserved.
The land of fire and ice where a brilliant mountains, glaciers, hot mineral springs, active volcanoes and the mighty Pacific Ocean are found in a harmonious combination.

rocky walls of caldera place high-power fumarols. Inspection
of northern group of new craters. Northern tapers - special
group of volcanic formations, representing volcanoes in a
miniature, their altitude is 100-200 meters. It is a result
of the last exploration of Tolbachik volcano in 1975-76. Inspection
of “Dead forest”. You’ll be impressed by the view of standing
star stocks (as a result of the last exploration of Tolbachik
