BEAUTY IN THE SHADOWS OF VOLCANOES

This charming port city is one of the oldest towns in the Far East and the second largest city in the world that is unreachable by road. Nestled amongst a string of five volcanoes on the shores of Avacha Bay, Petropavlovsk is the ideal destination to get away from it all while immersing yourself in natural surroundings.

Petropavlovsk is the largest city in the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia. The region contains the southernmost expanse of Arctic tundra along with 160 volcanoes. This environment lends itself to some breathtaking and unique outdoor activities including climbing volcanoes, visiting geysers, relaxing in natural hot springs and fishing in wild rivers. For extreme sports enthusiasts, paragliding over the city of fire and ice would provide a memorable rush and stunning scenery.

The city’s present prosperity, owed to a booking fishing industry, is also a boon for foodies. Petropavlovsk is known for its most famous delicacies, salmon and the gargantuan Kamchatka crab (king crab), which you can sample in restaurants around town. Visit the sprawling town market famed for smoked fish, bread, cheeses and other local fare.
