Umnak Island, Alaska. Documentary, Travel Vlog

This is a story about the Aleutian Islands and Umnak, about Alaska, about northern nature, about majestic volcanoes and growing glaciers. This is a story about walking along untouched and unexplored routes. We hiked around Umnak island where no human has gone before. Developed all routes by ourselves through the works of geologists and maps of the Second World War.

Our trip to Umnak island lasted over a month. We faced the most unpredictable weather on the planet, climbed glaciers, fought with the winds, wandered in the mists, blazed paths through unknown passes and camped on the sides of active volcanoes. The first who climbed the active volcano Okmok with video equipment and filmed it.

As majestic and inaccessible as Kamchatka, as colorful and photogenic as Iceland.
Umnak is a pearl for enjoying primed nature, this is a lost paradise where nature reigns supreme and all inhabitants obey its laws.
This journey forever changes one's attitude towards life and nature. In this moment you are faced with forces that no one can influence.
This is the unique film in the world about Umnak Island with history and places around.
