View Kamchatka brown bears, Stellar sea eagles, salmon spawning places. Take a motorboat excursion and walking excursions with local wardens to a nearby bear view platform (800 meters from the lodge) that is located at the mouth of the many rivers that drain into Kurilskoye Lake. Here you'll have a good chance of taking great, close-up shots of bears fishing for migrating salmon. The salmon pause briefly in the lake and then make their way from the lake into the streams where they spawn.
Take longer walking excursions to a large meadow where bears feed on wild berries and visit other spawning streams farther from the lodge. Along these streams, you'll see spawning salmon and many signs of a large number of bears in the area. There's a good chance you'll see bears fishing just a few yards away as you walk along the banks of streams.
