Most flights arrive in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the morning. Your Discovery Russia's dedicated tour guide will meet you at the airport and transfer to the hotel in Paratunka valley. “Mystery Kamchatka” provides premium accommodation and impeccable service.
With only 5 cottages, the resort is all about privacy and guests' comfort.
In the afternoon, we travel to the local settlement of Itelmen people, to the real one, not a tourist attraction! Everything you see today is not a performance, but a way of life which is still preserved here, at the Far East of Asia, at a volcano’s base. You will be carried through an ancient "purification" ceremony by the Chief, then you will learn about the Itelmens way of life, traditions, legends, and enjoy national dances and songs.
And there is more, if you are interested in mystical aspects of old cultures, you will be able to see an ancient ceremony of shamans, such as "circulation on coals" and walk to the ancient Valley of Spirits. Traditional Itelmen dinner will be served: fish soup, meat, herbal teas and cowberry pies. Real Middle Ages in a Kamchatka way! Transfer back to the lodge in the evening.
In the evening, relax in the pool. Kamchatka is a volcano's land and thermal springs are all around there.
