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.
