The bear hunts of the Kamchatka peninsula in far eastern Siberia are legendary. Here you can find many really huge brown bears, that have grown big and fat on the plentiful Pacific salmon that migrate up the untamed rivers. We can unashamedly boast that we have the best bear hunt on Kamchatka!
In fact we are the only travel agency that carries out hunting here with their own, experienced hunt leader in the hunting district - a seasoned and very well organised Norwegian hunter, who has acted as a hunting guide on the peninsula for 18 years. He will be on site the whole time visiting hunters are there and he acts as a shared hunting guide, working in close collaboration with his Russian personnel.
The hunt takes place from the end of April to the end of May. On a purely practical level the hunt proceeds by locating promising bear tracks with the help of a snow scooter. Hunters stay in a primitive, but functional, camp consisting of either polar tents or huts - all equipped with heating stoves and electricity supplied by an on-site generator.
To reach the hunting district you fly to Petropavlosk, then drive or take a helicopter out to the camp - a bit of an adventure by itself.
Close to the Bering Sea in north east Siberia you will find the Kamchatka Peninsula. It is here, amongst the rugged but beautiful landscape of volcanoes, snow clad mountains and green valleys, you will find the home of the huge Russian brown bear. The bears of the Kamchatka Peninsula reach a very impressive size, they cam stand 3m tall, and reach a weight of 700kg in the late autumn.
The Kamchatka Peninsula has a length of over 1,500km, stretching down from the remoteness of north eastern Siberia. It is part of the Pacific Ocean’s volcanic “ring of fire”, and boasts an impressive mountainous landscape with fresh clean air, snow-clad peaks over 3,000m high, uninhabited plateaux and forest covered valleys with crystal clear rivers and streams running through them. Here you can find 120 volcanoes, of which 20 are still active.
In addition to brown bear and moose the Kamchatka Peninsula is also home to the Kamchatka snow sheep, caribou, wolf, lynx, red- and polar fox, otters, black grouse and ptarmigan. By the side of the different species of seal found on the coasts of the north you can also find walrus of up to 1,500kg and polar bears. But Kamchatka is not just for the hunter, there is also plenty on offer for the angler - with many different species of trout and char present in the rivers and stream, while in the summer and early autumn countless salmon come up the rivers to spawn.
The camp consists of solid cabins, bunk rooms or large tents with double canvas. There is also a mess tent, sauna and bathroom and dry toilets. Every tent/cabin is heated by a open fire of an electrical heater. A generator supplies also supplies power for lighting. Beds, bed lining and poss. sleeping bags are provided. To ensure that all hunter manage to shoot a bear, the hunt prioritises hunters...Read more
