E’ una penisola che si trova all’estremo nord-est della Russia. Si affaccia sull’oceano Pacifico tra il mare di Okhotsk e lo stretto di Bering. Due terzi della popolazione (460.000) vive nella capitale Petropavlovsk famosa per le basi dei sottomarini militari russi. Il Kamchatka ha una superficie di 472.000 Kmq. pari alla Germania e all’Austria messe insieme. Un luogo con un fascino incredibile; con una catena montuosa di centinai di vulcani, di cui 30 attivi che raggiungono i 3.500 mt. circondati da una natura ancora selvaggia, un paradiso per lo sci fuori pista. Un’esperienza incomparabile anche per i professionisti della montagna. Gli elicotteri sono gli enormi MI 8 con la garanzia e l’esperienza di ex piloti militari. Ci sono possibilità infinite di discese “virgins”, i vulcani sciabili sono circa 8 con dislivelli fino a 2400 mt. e pendenze da 25°/50°. E, quando si è stanchi si tolgono gli sci e ci si tuffa nei numerosi geyser di acqua calda.
