Located on Iturup, the largest and northernmost island of the Kuril ridge, the White Cliffs are pumice rock formations stretching for 28 km along the coastline.
Formed a long time ago as a result of volcanic eruptions, the cliffs have gradually acquired their present bizarre shapes due to an erosion process.
The pure white color and unusual shapes of the cliffs against the dark gray volcanic sands create a strikingly beautiful landscape that never fails to impress visitors. Adding to the picture is emerald green Kuril bamboo and the harsh stormy sea.
It will be safe to say that the White Cliffs of Iturup will make one of the most unforgettable sights you have ever seen. Do not hesitate to plan a trip to one of the most remote corners of Russia!
