Helicopter excursions to the Kuril Lake

+ the Ksudach caldera and Khodutka hot springs
Kamchatka is undoubtedly the Russian land of bears. And Kuril Lake is considered the Kamchatka land of bears.

This phenomenon is explained by salmon spawning concentrating in that area and attracting a number of bears.
