Sakhalin Island

Sakhalin – the wonderful place with amazing capes, quiet bays and mysterious lighthouses. Taste sea delicacies and conquer mountain peaks. Everybody would be able to accomplish a feat or make a discovery here.

The uniqueness of Sakhalin is, first of all, its remoteness from central regions of Russia, thus visiting Sakhalin is quite an achievement.

This is hard to find someone who was disappointed after meeting this enchanting piece of land. The island is famous for its huge variety of plants, rare animals, birds and fish. Not mentioning the especial charming atmosphere that is impossible to be captured even with the best and brightest photos and videos.

Sakhalin – mysterious and unpredictable world

During the travel tourists will find about Japanese period in the life of Sakhalin people and military events that took place on its territory. The guests will also see the main attractions of the island.

Tikhaya (quiet) Bay, which shores are covered with rare herbs and flowers, was named Tikhaya by famous seaman Ivan Fyodorovich Kruzenshtern. This is a rocky inaccessible island, inhabited primarily by loud sea gulls. Only their calls break a drowsy silence of this corner of paradise.

Iturup Island

Iturup – is one of many islands of Kurils, the biggest one and has the widest range of attractions. One of them is Baranskiy volcano, which height is over 1000 meters. There are a lot of mud pools, hot lakes and mineral streams at its bottom. 

Excursions to White cliffs and Kasatka Bay on Iturup island will acquaint you with geographical and historical knowledge, linked with ancient period and war events of different years. The same interest as White cliffs and Kasatka Bay hold Velikan Cape and Lyagushka (Frog) butte, that are located on Sakhalin.

Yankito plateau is one of those places that are interesting by the way they appeared. Solidified black lava in combination with green grass and bright flowers looks very unusual. And there is the info that the evidences that people used to live here during neolithic age have been found.

Are you aware of the fact that there is a huge variety of hot springs at Iturup? If you choose to travel to Iturup Island with us, you will have an opportunity to visit 3 hot springs resorts.
