The Kurile Islands stretching from Japan to Kamchatka are formed by very active volcanoes, which however are rarely visited by people.
We plan to charter a nice expedition vessel that accommodates up to 8 people and spend 5 days sailing along the eastern cost of Kamchatka to Northern Kurile islands, between the northern group of volcanoes, and try to approach and observe some of the most active volcanoes in the chain. After we arrive in Severo-Kurilsk, we will explore the island Paramushir, spend 2 days at the most active volcano - Ebeco, observe its active volcanic fields and hope to enjoy an eruption.
