Kamchatka Wildlife Reserves
September 29, 2018 00:12


Kamchatka has two wildlife reserves: Oleniy Dol and South Kamchatsky.

Location: the territory of the reserve is located in Elizovo and Ust-Bolsheretsky districts, and covers the extreme southern part of the peninsula. The reserve is washed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Okhotsk. 

What to see:  Kuril Lake is the most frequently visited site of the reserve. It was formed as a result of a volcanic dip and reaches a depth of more than 300 m.

Many tours are arranged here specially to observe bears in the wildlife. Tourists have an opportunity to see brown bears from the close but safe distance. Visitors are also allowed to take  spectacular rare photos and record videos. 
How to get there: there are no roads leading to the South Kamchatsky wildlife reserve. The flight by helicopter from Elizovo to  Kuril Lake lasts 1 hour 20 minutes.
Location: it is located in the southern part of the Kamchatka peninsula, on the territory of the Ust-Bolsheretsky district. The reserve is placed on a watershed plateau, from which the Tolmachev River, the Karymchina  and the Opala originate. 

What to see: "Oleniy Dol" was specially created to conserve and protect the places where wild reindeers wait for a cold winter.

The territory of the reserve is covered with mountain tundra. Apart from the deer, brown bears, sables and black-capped marmots live here. The Verkhne-Opal mineral springs are considered to be a local natural site of high significance.
How to get there: you can get to the territory of the reserve only by all-terrain vehicle (in winter – by snowmobile) or by helicopter.
