September 3, 2018 11:50


There are several protected areas in Kamchatka: three reserves, five natural parks and two wildlife reserves.


Location: this large and one of the most famous Kamchatka nature reserves is created in the east of Kamchatka, on the area of the Kronotsky Peninsula. 

Here are 8 active volcanoes (the highest one is Kronotskaya Sopka (bald peak), 3528 m), thermal lakes, waterfalls and the pearl of the Kamchatka Territory - the Valley of Geysers. More than 800 brown bears live on the territory of the Kronotsky Reserve. 

What to see: the staff of the reserve organize one- or three-day and multi-day excursion tours. During these tours you can visit the unique Valley of Geysers, the crater and caldera of the Uzon volcano, the coast of Kronotsky Lake and the Valley of Death.

In the reserve you can see picturesque larch forests, fir groves and Shchapinsk spruce forests,   the Semyachikhinsky, Tyushevsky and Chazhmin hot springs, and also get acquainted with the glaciers preserved on the Kronotsky Peninsula. Moreover, there are guided tours lasting up to 10 days in the marine area of the reserve. During these tours you can see and make pictures of sea lions and whales. 

Volunteer programs: the reserve invites volunteers every year during the warm season: from May to October. The reserve needs volunteers who want to spend at least a month on the peninsula. The most demanded are men who have skills in building and repairing houses  and   are able to perform various household tasks. Together with the staff of the reserve the volunteers build, paint, repair houses, and also arrange ecological paths. The reserve pays the volunteers a ticket for a flight from Elizovo to his / her territory and back, food, accommodation in the houses on the cordons "Istok", "Ozerny", "Grassy" and "Ipooin", as well as a one-day helicopter tour to the Valley of Geysers. 

How to get there: You can get to the area of the Kronotsky Reserve by helicopter from Elizovo, walk on foot or come by sea in the ship. In any case, you need to buy a ticket for a guided tour, including the right to visit the reserved area.
