Kamchatka Private Day tour by Air - Volcanoes of Kamchatka
If you are in Kamchatka for few days, wish to extend your Itinerary or have 1-2 days left before you head back home, make your journey complete by taking a helicopter tour to one or few top Kamchatka attractions.
During the tour, we will fly over remarkable Vilyucha, Gorely (1829 m) and Mutnovsky (2324 m) volcanoes. Located within ~ 70 km from Petropavlovsk, this group of volcanoes is particulary known for its "breathing" craters with geysers and gases colored in blue and yellow by fumaroles and mineralized thermal waters. If the weather permits, we will be able to fly into the Mutnovsky volcano crater and land for a short walk.

Pass By: Vilyuchik Volcano, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky 684035 Russia
Vilyukinsky volcano is located to the south-west of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, immediately behind Avacha Bay. The volcano refers to the extinct, represented by the correct cone height of 2175 meters above sea level. Its top is cut to the west and looks like large outcrops of rocks separated by a cluster of ice and firn. Lava and pyroclastics, which make up the residues, are changed from the surface to a variegated appearance, possibly due to the impact of fumarol in the recent past. The slopes of the volcano are cut by radially diverging from the top of deep barrancos, and some of them originate from the middle of the slope. The upper cavities on the northwestern slope are filled with ice and firn. The volcano is composed of lava and pyroclastic andesite-basalt composition. At the base of the volcano, more acidic rocks are noted, and in the south-eastern part there are hot springs.
Pass By: Volcano Gorely, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Russia
Gorely volcano refers to active volcanoes. The modern building occupies an area of 150 km2, is located in the center of the caldera, composed mainly of basalt and andesite-basalt lavas. The construction itself and the flow morphology resemble Hawaiian type of volcanism. However, its top is framed by a chain of explosive craters, and on the slopes there are about 30 side slag cones. The absolute height of the central cone is 1829 m. The ancient building of the volcano is no less interesting and unique. It covers an area of 650 km. Its gentle slopes can be traced in the north to the upper river. Paratunki, northeast - to the headwaters. Fatty, east - the Falshivoy and Vulkannaya rivers, the south - up to the northern slopes of the volcanoes. Asacha, and in the west - to Tolmacheva Dol. The construction of andesite-basalt and andesite lavas and mainly pyroclastic andesite-dacite and dacite composition.
Pass By: Volcano Mutnovsky, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky Russia
The ancient Mutnovsky volcano is a snowy, shapeless massif with a billowing column of steam. It is clearly visible from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky across the expanse of Avachinskaya Bay, among low mountain ranges. The structure of the volcano is quite complicated. It is a short ridge formed by four fused cones. The highest point of the ridge Mutnovsky raised almost 2 and a half kilometers above sea level. The explosions formed two overlapping craters in the western part of the massif - the southern and the northern ones, resembling a figure of eight above. The crater diameters reach two kilometers, and the depth - 600 meters. The main place of modern activity of the volcano is the crater "Active Funnel". It is from its depths that steam columns are knocked out, sometimes reaching a kilometer height. Steam-gas jets are framed by volcanic sulfur crystals. The energy of the volcano feeds the largest ecologically clean object in Russia - Mutnovskaya GEOTES, where Kamchatka’s renewable resources, heat from the earth’s interior, are used to produce electricity. The energy potential of the Mutnovsky steam and water field is estimated at 300 megawatts. The geothermal power plant, with a total capacity of about 60 megawatts, provides about 30 percent of the total electricity demand of Petropavlovsk, Yelizov and Vilyuchinsk.
