The Kuril arc like a narrow chain of islands connects as an open-work bridge the two worlds - Kamchatka and Japan.
The mysterious Kuril islands are part of the Pacific volcanic ring. The Islands – are the top of the highest structures of the volcanic ridge, protruding from the water only 1-2 km away and going into the deep ocean for many kilometers. There are more than 150 volcanoes, 39 of them are active on the Kuril islands. The highest volcano, Alaid (2339 m), is located on the Atlasov's island. Existence of the dozens thermal springs which are used for medical and health purposes since times immemorial are bound also with volcanic activity.
The Kuril islands are a paradise for the romantic traveler. Hardness, uninhabited, geographical isolation, existence of the active volcanoes, far from "beach climate" and lack of information do not deter adventurers, but also reinforce their desire to get on misty, fire-breathing islands which are former military fortress of the Japanese army, still hiding deep underground secrets of the past years.
Flora of the Islands is remarkable. Experts compare the Kuril Islands with a huge botanical garden, where representatives of various floras neighbor: Japanese-Korean, Manchurian and Okhotsk-Kamchatka. Here grow together polar birch and millennial yew, spruce and larch with wild grape, creeping cedar wood and velvet, tropical creepers and far-east cranberries. Traveling to the islands, you can visit the various natural zones, for example, to get out of the primeval taiga to subtropical thickets, from moss tundra to the jungle with giant grasses.
Kamchatka and the Kuril islands are the first to meet the dawn in our country.
