A trail bike adventure between volcanoes and waves in the former Russian military zone of Kamchatka.

We’re in the last hour of the longest domestic flight in the world, and it’s been a pretty shaky one. Suddenly a snow-covered volcano pops out of the grey clouds outside the window, seeming really close to the plane, but as fast as it appeared, it disappears again. Just a glimpse of what we can expect for the upcoming days. The excitement grows as we realise we’re almost there, after 20 hours of travelling. From Dusseldorf in Germany on a plane to Moscow, then a crazy taxi drive from Sheremetyevo International Airport through the city to Vnukovo International Airport to catch the eight-hour flight we’re now on to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
