This volcano located very close to the capital allows you to ascend to a large volcano in a few days. This route is suitable for mountaineers with good physical fitness, you will have to overcome 2,500m of unevenness in two days (the base camp is located at 900m). The route is technically not difficult, the key steps are short-lived, but you must have experience in ice axes and crampons.
The first day transfer by Jeep (and snowmobile in spring) from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky to the base camp at the neck of the Avachinsky (900m altitude), and ascent to a height of 2000m where we will camp. The second day ascension to the top and return to the city.

THE BEST PANORAMIC VIEW OVER THE BIG VOLCANOS
The best views of the great active volcanoes of the Central Kamchatka region.
We recommend this tour for those who do not conform to the normal route to Plosky Tolbachik and who wish to see the Klyuchevskaya volcano group from a height of 3682 meters. You will have to climb 2700 meters in two days. The routes are not technically complicated. The key sites are short-lived, but potentially dangerous and require extreme caution.
The excursion is five days, one transfer by Jeep to the base of the volcano. The second approach to the tent camp we will ride at 2,400m, the third day will get to the top and return to the base of the volcano. We will have one day extra in case of bad weather and one back.
PRICE: 1.050€/person. (5 days)
THE TALLEST ACTIVE VOLCANO OF EUROASIA
The highest peak of Kamchatka is one of the 10 peaks located in the territory of the Russian Federation, whose ascension is necessary to obtain the climbing title “Snow Leopard of Russia”.
This 13-day tour is recommended for people with mountain experience. The route is not technically complicated, but it is long and potentially dangerous due to the activity of the volcano.
Transfer by Jeep to the base of the volcano. Walk along the Bogdanovich glacier. Ascent to the 2700m camp, at the neck of the volcanologists (3300m). Finally on day 7 we will make the attack to the top. We reserve an acclimatization day and a extra day in case of bad weather.
PRICE: 1.500€/person. (13 days)
THE MOST PRESTIGIOUS VOLCANO, APPROXIMATION IN HELICOPTER.
The second highest peak of the Kamchatka Peninsula is famous for its aesthetics, but also for being the most difficult to climb both technically and physically. This is a program for those who do not have enough time to do the long approach trekking.
It is advisable to first acclimatize in one of the Kamchatka volcanoes (Koryaksky 3456 or Ushkosky 3943m). We will make the transfer to the base camp (3300m) by helicopter to reduce the ascent to one week.
If you have more time or less money you can also adjust the program to make the ascent without the approach by helicopter.
PRICE: 4.500€/person. (7 days)
