At more than 17 million square kilometres, Russia is the largest country in the world, covering more than an eighth of the earth's land area. It extends across much of Europe and the whole of northern Asia, spanning 11 time zones and incorporating a great range of environments and landforms. The opportunities for adventure travel here are innumerable and largely untapped - something for the future! One of Russia's most outlandish adventure destinations is the far east peninsula of Kamchatka, a volcanic hot spot and veritable 'Land of Fire and Ice'. Trekking, wilderness exploration and volcano climbing are all part of Kamchatka's appeal. Another far flung and remote area is the Tsherskiy Mountains in the region of Yakutsk, here there is opportunity to trek, canoe and live off the land by fishing for dinner. A truely magical land with so much untouched wilderness. Adventure awaits!
