Itinerary
If the weather is cooperative and if there is place on the helicopter you will fly to the Valley of Geysers, located in the Kronotsky Reserve. The flight takes about one hour and fifteen minutes, three hours are spent in the Valley and then there is a lunch after which you return to Yelizovo. The whole excursion can take all day though because the weather usually does not clear until late morning.

Arriving at the Valley is nearly as exciting as being there, as the helicopter's route takes visitors over the gorgeous acid-blue Maly Semyachik Crater Lake. As well the stunningly beautiful and very actively puffing Karymsky Volcano often astounds visitors by belching forth with ash and smoke as the helicopter makes a slow circuitous flight around one of Kamchatka's most active volcanoes.
The Valley of Geysers is the only geyser field in Eurasia and the second largest concentration of geysers in the world. This 6 km long basin with approximately ninety geysers and many hot springs is situated on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East, predominantly on the left bank of the ever-deepening Geysernaya River, into which geothermal waters flow from a relatively young stratovolcano, Kikhpinych. It is part of the Kronotsky Nature Reserve. The valley is difficult to reach, with helicopters providing the only feasible means of transport.
Volcano Uzon caldera was formed about 40000 years ago as the result of giant volcano destruction caused by a series of explosive eruptions. The caldera is a 150 sq. km. basin surrounded by steep rock walls. There are five thermal fields with thousands of spouting springs within the caldera, though there was no pulsating geyser up until now. Scientists are observing the recently erupted geyser and hypothesizing as to its origin. The pulsating source has not yet been named.
You will have an opportunity, by trying yourself, to effect beautiful picture of geysers. This itinerary takes you to one of the most remote parts of the world.
