Tour Overview

Lake Baikal offers magnificent itineraries of trekking at a leisurely pace walking on popular routes. This time we invite you to adventure trekking that route is divided into two parts: eastern shore of Lake Baikal and its biggest Olkhon Island, shaman's land. 

Having left Irkutsk for Bolchoye Goloustnoye where trekking will start we will reach Listvyanka in four days. During all this route we will enjoy the Baikal panorama from the bird's-eye view from the one hand, from the other one Siberian taiga with its rich colors. Than the landscapes will change when we will arrive on Olkhon Island where we will continue trekking with an overnight in the true yourta. Discovery of small Buryat villages on the island, sacred rocks, white sand beaches and endless steppes will make this trekking unforgettable.

You will not have to carry your luggage with you, we will care about it. So for the first four days you will need to take the most necessary things with you (prepare a medium backpack), the rest we will bring to you to Listvyanka on the 5th Day when you will go to Olkhon Island. You will have to bring your personal things neither on Olkhon Island: you will be accompanied with a vehicle, so you can always have a rest. Furthermore a hot lunch and dinner will be waiting for you!
