Russkaya Bay

Russkaya Bay is on the southeastern coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Eastern Russia. Near to Petropavlovsk, it is a fjordlike bay located in south-western part of the Avacha Gulf. Here you may see sharks, killer whales, sea otters and a sea-lions rookery at the entrance to the bay.

Zhupanova River

To the north-east 120 km of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy the Zhupanova River watershed boasts being one of the most productive trout rivers in the world. The Kamchatka south-eastern Peninsula and river is home to the richest rainbow trout habitat. The Zhupanova drains a 1.1 million acre area extending into the central Kamchatka Range of volcanic mountains. The river contains exceptionally large trout, some reaching 7.3-9 kg, (12-15lbs) five species of Pacific salmon, and two species of Anadromous char (Salmo alpinus L). The Zhupanova is a resting place for migratory birds, who gather here in the thousands during their fall migration. The Russian Far East has more brown-bears than Alaska, and the Zhupanova, before or during the annual salmon run is a good place to see them. The eye stopper here is the huge steller sea-eagle, the heaviest eagle in the world. They build their nests overhanging the river, and there is the opportunity to see chicks, as well as adults.


Petropavlovsk is the administrative, industrial, scientific, and cultural center of Kamchatka Oblast (Russia). The city itself has more people than its neighboring regions Magadan Oblast, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, and Koryak Autonomous Okrug, making it the largest by far in the far northeast. The city is situated on high hills and surrounded by volcanoes. In fact, the horizon cannot be seen clearly from any point of town as volcanoes and mountains are everywhere.

 The Aleutian Islands are the tops of submerged mountains belonging to a range stretching more than 1000 km into the Pacific Ocean from the Alaska mainland. Volcanic peaks, hidden valleys, and pebbled beaches invite all explorers. Whales, sea lions, seals, and sea otters are common on wildlife tours, as well as eagles, the rare whiskered auklet and the ancient murrelet.

Places of Interest


Founded in 1903, Seward was the southern terminus of the Alaska Railroad. In 1964, an earthquake caused a tidal wave over 100 feet tall to wash away much of the waterfront, devastating the town. But its residents, embodying Alaska's famous spirit and fortitude, rebuilt. Today, the town of Seward is a thriving port for commercial fishing, tourism and the rail system.
