15-25 July 2018
Wildlife phototour: bears, orcas, sea lions
Wild nature of Kamchatka, Russia
This is a unique program to Kamchatka from Team Trip. We will have a close contact with the wild animals, observing them in their natural environment. We will live 3 days on the Kuril Lake on the territory of the South Kamchatka Federal Preserve surrounded by numerous bears which come to hunt salmon going to spawn.
3 other days we spend in the Pacific Ocean on a comfortable catamaran "Kosatka". We will go along the coast of Kamchatka, swim with Steller sea lions and whale watch. The most exciting thing is our acquaintance with killer whales! First we will visit the field camp of FEROP biologists who study orcas in Kamchatka since 1999, and will listen to their interesting lectures, and then go in search of these amazing intelligent mammals and even swim with them in the ocean! We also will meet seals and sea otters and watch the northern sea birds.
