Tour Overview

An excellent possibility for those who have only one day to explore Listvyanka and all beauties of Baikal Region. 

This tour is operated between the village of Listvyanka and Chernaya valley. Driving your dog sled pulled by Baikal huskies you will travel through snow-covered taiga to reach "Dark" valley called so because of dense forest around where our welcoming inn is located. We will go back by the frozen lake or the woods - depending on the season.

Découvrir Baïkal Nature a été un véritable plaisir. Toute l'équipe est très agréable et disponible pour les questions. Ces quelques jours sur le lac étaient fantastiques!

Voyage bien organisé, nous avons néanmoins trouvé que nous ne visitions que les spots touristiques . La prochaine fois nous préférerons nous éloignez des spots pour une approche plus nature .
