Tout était parfait, les transferts impeccables, Irina, Andrej, Janna et Anna furent des guides de qualité. Vous aviez parfaitement choisi les lieux de séjour et de repas La base Lada à Olkhone nous convenait parfaitement, nous avons eu l’occasion d’y rencontrer un charmant groupe féminin qui était aussi en villégiature pour quelques jours et qui comprenait une ancienne professeure de français…

Un séjour grandiose et inoubliable à tout point de vue. Dans la description, il faudrait peut-être quand même préciser que pour faire les 2 jours de marche sur le lac, il vaut mieux être entrainé à marcher vite en cas de mauvaise météo. Ceci a été le cas pour nous le dimanche, avant d'arriver au campement. Heureusement notre guide Andreï a été parfait et notre groupe était homogène pour avoir une

Très belle découverte que ce voyage. Qualité des prestations : en préparation (merci Anna); à Oulan Oudé, excellente guide (Natacha) Une simple recommandation : le guide principal devrait faire un débriefing chaque jour pour le lendemain afin que chacun puisse s'organiser; cela semblait par moment improvisé au dernier moment. Enfin, nous avons fait le circuit à l'envers et le début est un peu

Excellent séjour. Qualité de l'hébergement spartiate mais correcte. On ne s'inscrit pas à une randonnée si on veut du logement 5*. Accueil sympathique sans flagornerie de l'équipe de mushers. gastronomie simple et énergétique. Logement sympathiquement primitif et frais le matin (on ne traîne pas au lit). Encore une fois, on est pas sur du balnéaire. Bonne qualité du programme sur la traversée.

Voyage très bien organisé et original (logement et repas chez l'habitant très bien). Confort un peu rudimentaire, mais c'est normal dans cette région et il faut l'accepter. Par contre à Khakoussy il était noté sur le programme toilette et douche à l'étage. De douche il n'y en avait pas, et les toilettes, c'était dehors. D'ailleurs, nous n'étions pas dans l'hébergement prévu. Les repas étaient
