Sakhalin is a region shrouded in secrecy, a place uniting oriental wisdom and mystifying Russian soul. This is exactly where our unique and unusual trip will take place.
During 12 days we will try to show you how immense and beautiful Sakhalin Island is with its abundant biodiversity. We will discover almost the whole territory of the island; see dozens of sights and fascinating landscapes. We will spend several nights in tents on the shores of the most scenic bays; sit by a campfire at the waterfront listening to guitar music and the sounds of the sea. Moreover we will be one of the firsts in Russia to meet the dawn as we will be on one of the easternmost subjects of the Russian Federation.
Sakhalin Island is also famous for its volcanoes and hot springs. During the tour we will have the opportunity to bath in those springs and see the volcanoes with our own eyes.
However, in spite of rich program on the Sakhalin Island, the pearl of our trip will be the Iturup Island that makes our voyage more exclusive. Being one of the largest in the Kuril chain of islands it has a remote and isolated location. So, we will have to take a plane in order to get there. But thanks to the same inconveniences in geographical availability, we will catch the opportunity to admire the pristine nature: volcanoes, waterfalls, geysers, lakes, hot springs and so on.
