Inspiring Expeditions by Geoffrey Kent® - The Land of Fire and Ice… and Bears

You’ll gather in Beijing for an incredible start to this journey. Fly by private jet to the heart of Kamchatka, one of the world’s last wildernesses. Home to otherworldly geysers, smoldering yet snow-flecked, active volcanoes, and diverse habitats from tundras to grasslands, you will explore between the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk. To complete your expedition, you’ll jet to Moscow and enjoy the finest Russian hospitality.
