Hazards on routes and safety rules
Ecotourism is an active type of recreation. The routes pass along forest paths, the coast, a dirt road, so you need to have comfortable clothes and shoes.

It is not recommended to travel along the routes for persons requiring constant medical supervision, with complex diseases.

As a result of careless travel along the route, you can get serious injuries. To reduce the risk of injury, it is necessary to be extremely attentive to the recommendations of the guides regarding behavior in dangerous places (slippery path, cliff, rockfall).

To avoid poisoning and other troubles, do not taste plants, fruit and mushrooms, do not touch thorny bushes and poisonous plants with your hands, do not drink water from open reservoirs.

Blood-sucking insects
Use repellents to protect against hard ticks and other blood-sucking insects (mosquitoes, midges, horseflies).

The best protection against ticks is taking precautions:

do not go into the impenetrable thickets of undersized bushes;
legs must be completely covered with clothing;
tuck trousers, pants (preferably with a smooth surface) into socks;
be sure to wear a hat (cap, scarf).

Kunashir is inhabited by 3 species of eastern racers (Euprepiophis conspicillata, Elaphe climacophora, Elaphe quadrivirgata), all of them are in Red Books and protected by the nature reserve. Eastern racers can often be seen near thermal springs, on the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk warmed by the sun.

Bears
The brown bear is the largest predator of Kunashir Island. When meeting a bear, do not turn your back on it. You need to slowly move back, not look into his eyes. When driving on tall grass, make a noise (use whistles) — this will warn the bear about your approach. As a last resort, use a means of repelling the bear (flare, pepper spray) or climb a tree and wait until the bear loses interest in you and leaves.

If you see cubs, leave immediately, meeting a bear is always dangerous!
