Important note regarding the flights
Because of the exposed location of Kamchatka, especially during the winter months heavy storms and snow fall can occur. If this happens, flights can be delayed up to two days. Therefore, you should in any case be flexible at least two days before and after the journey and not schedule any important meetings directly before or after the journey.
