One Day Tour to Vilyuchik volcano
A trip to Vilyuchinsky volcano is one of the easiest trips but makes you remember about it for a long time.
Group gathering at about 8:00AM in the city and we will drive to the south of Kamchatka. We will make our first stops: near Zaikin spring (Rabbit’s key) and near the bridge crossing the Paratunka river to pick pristine spring water. These stops allow us to get out the vehicle, warm up and take the first photos of the valley and volcanoes.
Our vehicle will drive up the serpentine route to reach the highest point on the pass where the viewing point locates. There you will find information about species of flora and fauna, take photos of yourself surrounded by the major totems of Kamchatka or just sit on the bench and enjoy surrounding – Vilyuchinsky volcano is before you in all its glory.
After returning to our vehicle our driver will drive us to the base of the volcano where our climbing to 50 meter waterfall starts. Ascent takes about 1-1,5 hours depending on tourists’ pace.
After going through alder bushes we will be on snowfield which doesn’t melt during the whole summer. From there you will be able to see our goal in the distance.
We will hike up slowly to the top and on our way we will enjoy panoramic views. It’s time for viewing and taking photos.
After heading back to our vehicles we will drive to the area of Verkhne-Paratunskye hot springs. Before climbing we will have lunch in the equipped camp.
These hot springs are small but the visitors like this place because of exotic nature; this is lovely place especially for those who live in large cities. The water builds up your strength and makes you cheerful.
Heading back to the city.
