Rafting along Kamchatka Rivers

From June till October
Depends upon availability of a group

Both beginners and experienced sportsmen are interested in rafting along Kamchatka rivers, as there is a wide variety of routes according to difficulty and remoteness from any settlement. One of the complexity lies in remoteness the rivers from the roads. That is why a several-days walking is required to approach a river. Or one can have a helicopter flight to the starting point of a rafting route. Still this remoteness has its advantages, as it is wild route.
We offer to fall down the river on catamarans or rafts. Catamaran is rather mobile mean of transport, pretty light, and that is why it is good for the combined routes if there is a walk to the beginning of rafting. If one chooses rafting, it is better to reach the starting point by means of a car or helicopter.
