Kamchatka is a region that is often referred to as the “Russian end of the world”. This peninsula, located in the Asian part of Russia, has an area slightly larger than that of Poland (about 370 thousand km2), and is inhabited by only around 470 thousand people (of which over 200 thousand are concentrated around the largest city in the region, i.e. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky). This picturesque land, covered with dense stretches of green tundra intersected by rivers and dotted with numerous volcano craters (reaching up to five thousand metres above sea level) is a mecca for wildlife. It is safe to say that Kamchatka is one of the last places on Earth where nature still rules, and when travelling through it, one is much more likely to meet a bear than a human. Its crystal clear rivers are famous for their abundance of Pacific salmon – the fish swim into Kamchatka’s rivers from the Sea of Okhotsk to spawn. The area of the peninsula is a dream come true for anglers who love extreme fishing and want to catch the specimen of their lives.
