On the Kamchatka Peninsula, the world's largest brown bear hunts along rivers churning with salmon that roar through taiga forests. It is a "Land of Fire and Ice," a geothermal wonderland for photographers. In the Kronotsky Reserve, geysers gush across a bubbling landscape of smouldering, snow-capped volcanoes, thermal springs and boiling mud pots.
Several expeditions continue from Kamchatka across the Bering Sea to the Aleutians and to the Alaska and Kenai peninsulas, some of the most inaccessible places in North America. These nutrient-rich waters support vast populations of fish, birds from every continent on earth, and countless numbers of whales, dolphins, sea lions and fur seals, and an expedition through this wilderness will surely be a trip of a lifetime!
