    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!
