Character of the tour

At bird-species, we become the typical Taigaspecies (for example Siberian Rubythroat, Black Capercaillie) once, then the coast-birds. Inclosed you will find a species-list for Kamtschatka. Since we will visit almost all typical landscapes, we have also good chances to see many of these species. One can almost everywhere find brown-bears, but one can have also bad luck and sees no one. This depends on many factors: Availability of food (fish, berries), our behavior then normally escapes the brown-bears on Kamtschatka. The exact route will establish we after the realities on the spot.
