Kamchatka Brown Bears and Volcanoes

Kamchatka Brown Bears and Volcanoes

Kuril Lake Brown Bears and Volcanoes

Sensational New Itinerary in Kamchatka, Russia

11 to 22 August, 2019

You can be among the first 14 people to join Ken Duncan in Kamchatka, Russia, to photograph the magnificent Kuril Lake Brown Bears.

This brand new and exciting itinerary has been put together by Ignacio Palacios, who will be co-hosting the tour with Ken. The tour will focus on landscape and wildlife photography.

The Kamchatka peninsula is 1,250 kilometre long and connects with the Pacific Ring of Fire volcanic chain.  It is without doubt the most spectacular region in Russia. This is wilderness at its absolute best, with 29 active volcanoes, more than 400 glaciers and 14,000 rivers.

Here is your chance to observe and photograph nature in all her glory and majesty.

Kamchatka has Russia’s highest concentration of bears.  The 14,000 rivers and streams support 6 species of salmon which the brown bears love – and which they need for food!

The Kamchatka brown bear is a very large bear – the largest in Eurasia – and stands up to 3 metres tall on its hind legs. You will be able to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures as they walk, swim and fish nearby.  However, there is no need to fear for your safety, as armed rangers will be keeping a close eye on you … and on the bears.

And Kamchatka also has 300 volcanoes – 29 of which are currently active.  In fact, 10% of the world’s active volcanoes are located on the Kamchatka peninsula.  This will provide you with outstanding landscape opportunities, including the amazing Valley of the Geysers, known as the Pearl of Kamchatka.

With the combined photo opportunities for large brown bears and volcanoes, no wonder Ken is eagerly looking forward to this new adventure!

Please Note:  This is not a trip for everyone!  You must realise that Kamchatka is a wild environment with poor infrastructure.  Roads can be pretty rough and weather conditions may affect the itinerary.  You need to be prepared to sleep in huts (if they are available) or in tents at both Kuril Lake and Mutnovsky Volcano.

However ….

  • if your sense of adventure outweighs your fear of the unknown,
  • if you are keen for 4 days of truly outstanding close encounters with Kuril Lake brown bears, and
  • if the prospect of visiting some active volcanoes thrills you ….

… then you really should reserve your place right away.

During your Avacha Bay scenic boat tour, you may even be blessed with a whale sighting.

No matter what your current photographic skill level is, you are sure to benefit from the combined experience and expertise of Ken and Ignacio.  They will both work closely with you to ensure you come home with outstanding images and memories to last a lifetime.

Colour Match

Every effort has been made on this Gallery site to accurately represent the vibrant colours of Ken’s images. However, due to differences in computer screens and certain other variations, the images here should only to be taken as a guide. Obviously, the colour and sharpness of a finished Ken Duncan Limited Edition Print are far superior to what can be presented on a small screen.
