In September 2017, I managed to spend three weeks in Kamchatka taking pictures of the wild nature: brown bears, stunning autumn landscapes, geysers and volcanoes. And it was an absolutely incredible experience! I arrived in Kamchatka as a volunteer, so I managed to visit some unique territories that are not accessible for usual tourists. As well as other volunteers, I lived in small staff houses: I spent two weeks in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve and one week in “Volcanoes of Kamchatka” Nature Park.
To become a volunteer for the Kronotsky Nature Reserve, for example, is not that difficult. To do that you need to visit the website, consider the proposals they have, evaluate your potential and fill the application. But, at the same time, I would like to mention that the volunteer’s activity does not imply “a banquet at the expense of the inviting party”.
