Yacht trip to the Northern Kuril Islands
11 — 21 june 2020
The Kuril islands are considered to be the most remote and the most difficult area to reach all along the country. The landscapes of the Kurils appear to look like adventure films settings; impressive in its size and view. And here i am, inviting you to take a week marine trip to the northern Kurils in summer 2020. The 'salt' is our vehicle — a yacht we will travel and live at.

Together we are going to visit Paramushir island, that is famous for having the biggest amount of volcanoes on the Kurils. We will climb an active volcano Ebeko to see lakes, thermals and fumaroles in its craters. Trekking along the Atlas island coast we will reach the spot of Japanese ship wreck, dated World War II period. Enlisted above is only a little part of activities we are going to do. In the afternoons we will be fishing while enjoying the wonderful Kurile nature, then at night we will go on stargazing.
