Lessons or coaching
Every kiter will have the opportunity to choose the difficulty of the terrain. The unique kiting spots on the Sredinny Range (Middle Range) offer anything from plain kiting to extreme mountain terrain. It snows heavily throughout the winter so both freeride skis and snowboards are suitable for the conditions. The wind ranges from 7-27 knots, so we recommend bring 2 kites to take advantage of all the conditions. Though there is a large variety of terrain to choose from, it is required that you are an independent kiter to join the excursion.
Suitable for: Solo traveler, Group, Family, Non-rider

Kamchatka is an amazing place, wild and beautiful. From snowy mountains to active volcanoes and hot springs, you will feel as if you entered another planet! There are plenty of interesting kiting spots for riders who are already independent including mountain snow kiting and kiting along the coast of Avacha Bay and the Pacific Ocean. We will take trips to the cosiest parts of the peninsula, lots of snow, sun and wind are waiting!
This 10 night excursion is non-stop excitement. We will wake up early mornings and explore endless kite spots via snowmobile, stopping only for lunch and hot tea along the way. Nights will consist of supper, soaking in outdoor thermal pools and viewing videos and photos from the day. You will experience and enjoy local Russian cuisine along the way. This program can be changed due to the wind strength, direction and weather conditions.
Windless Days Program
Because kiting is a wind dependent sport, our Windless Days Program will keep the adventure going even if the wind is not blowing. We will go free riding by snowmobile as well as on an excursion to the Nomad Reindeer Camp for an evening in a Russian sauna in the nomads tent. The thermal pools and ski centres are open for use anytime.

On the way we will stop at the wild hot springs to bathe in the thermal water- a perfect start for quick acclimatisation. We will stop for lunch in Sokoch settlement and have famous Russian pies (pirozhki) for lunch. We will then head to the hotel for supper in the evening.
Day 2 - Esso Settlement
After the long journey, have the morning off to sleep and recover. After luch, we'll check equipment on a light kite excursion.
