Come! We can offer a whole lot of projects: invest, and we will help - Vladimir Ilyukhin

Governor of Kamchatka Krai Vladimir Ilyukhin In an interview with EastRussia spoke about the attractiveness of the peninsula as a tourist area, and also shared plans for the development of the region in this area and not only.

“Kamchatka is a very attractive region,” the governor emphasized. “Before, not many could afford a vacation on the peninsula. But gradually tourism in the region is becoming more accessible and widespread. In addition to traditional specific types of tourism, hunting and fishing, more and more people come to us to ski, participate in ecotourism programs. "

The head of the region explained that "In recent years, about 50-60 thousand tourists a year come to the region. We plan to reach the level of 100 thousand in the coming years. But for this it is necessary to "tighten up" the tourist infrastructure, develop a hotel fund. "

"I admit that I least like to see Kamchatka as a" courtyard ", because there is a very fragile ecosystem in the region, it must be treated very scrupulously. Therefore, we try to develop more ecological routes. By the way, they are very popular among tourists from the APR countries - Japan, Korea. They are very sensitive to nature "- says Vladimir Ilyukhin.

In addition, the governor sees an important task in the redistribution of the tourist flow throughout the year. "The most attractive for visiting the region are traditionally July, August, September. At this time the hotels are crowded, there are almost no free tickets for airplanes, and the cost of the flight goes off scale. Now more and more people have come to visit us in the winter and we are trying to create comfortable conditions for winter recreation, we are reconstructing the ski resorts, we are holding large-scale thematic holidays. For example - a lot of tourists came to us last spring dog race "Beringia", - he told EastRussia.

Another important direction, according to the governor, is cruise tourism: "Now we take about 10-12 cruise ships per year. Within the framework of the economic forum, we signed an agreement with a company that carries out international calls. As a result of the implementation of the agreement, the number of cruise ship calls to the port of Petropavlovsk should increase to 60. "

"We have many proposals - in tourism, and in public catering, and in transport, and in energy, and in the gold sector. Come! We can offer a whole lot of projects: invest, and we will help "- convinces the Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Ilyukhin in an interview with EastRussia.
