Onekotan is one of the northernmost of the Kuril Islands, located southwest of Kamchatka’s southern tip. Although uninhabited now, the name refers to a former village: Onekotan had been settled by the Ainu until the 1880s. The island has two prominent stratovolcanoes, with a lake in each of the calderas, and several rivers. Despite strong winds, Siberian dwarf pine does grow in protected gullies. Peregrine Falcon, Tufted Puffins and Wagtails can often be seen along the beach and open areas near the river mouths.
