Summer skiing on Viluchinsky, Mutnovsky and Gorely volcanoes | undefined

Get ready for this summer skiing adventure in the Kamchatka Peninsula with a certified mountain guide, and discover the Viluchinsky, Mutnovsky and Gorely volcanoes under expert guidance!


8 Days

May, Jun




Have you ever heard of summer skiing on three volcanoes? This is my proposal! Join me on this 8-day adventure in the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula and discover the incredible Viluchinsky, Mutnovsky and Gorely volcanoes!

Located in far eastern Russia, Kamchatka is famous for being one of the snowiest places as well as one of the most impressive volcanic regions of the planet. The high quality snow, spectacular views and perfect skiing will make this trip the best way to enjoy your summer.

First, we’ll start our expedition by skiing on the Viluchinsky volcano (7129 ft / 2173 m). Based south of the Petropavlovsk capital city, this inactive volcano is known for having the best snow conditions on the whole peninsula. Then, we’ll continue by exploring the Gorely volcano (6,001 ft/ 1,829 m). Consisting of five overlapping stratovolcanoes, Gorely is one of the most active in southern Kamchatka. And finally, we’ll explore the Mutnovsky volcano (7,618 ft /2,322 m), famous for its huge crater with glaciers, fumarole and boiling mud volcanoes inside. Please take into account, that depending on weather conditions and other factors, there might be some slight changes to the program.

Moreover, I recommend this trip to intermediate or advanced skiers and snowboarders with backcountry and off-piste experience and bear in mind, that it’s essential to be in good physical condition. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
