Mar, May, Jun
This 14-day Kamchatka ski touring program will take you skiing to mountains and volcanoes in an amazing and remote area.
Kamchatka is a Russian region on the far east of the Asian continent. It is located between the Pacific ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk. And is best known among mountaineers because of its volcanoes, that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
And right there is where we'll go skiing!
During this two weeks you'll live things that you haven't even thought about. We'll ski at the foot of the active cone of the Avachinsky volcano. We'll climb peaks with amazing views of this virgin territory. And there even is a chance of skiing inside the active crater of Mutnovsky volcano.
And all of these features will be done while traveling through this remote region, to know not only the landscape, but also the people who live here and their traditions.
Sounds like an amazing weekend? It will be if you contact me know so I can start planning your visit to the amazing Kamchatka. You’ll spend an unforgettable two weeks!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
