Tour Overview

This voyage is specially for those who seek seclusion from all civilization and entire immersion in nature. The main goal is to let you enjoy a long trip on kayak and minimize all typical features of "a civilized tour": hotels, transport, crowd...

On the one hand, this idea allowed to reduce considerably your budget : very important thing! On the other hand, the kayak is an excellent way to get some privacy, comfort and cover long distances.

The layout of the itinerary passes through symbolic places of Baikal, most of which are accessible only by kayak, like caves, Cape Kobylia Golova, islands of the Small Sea. We will also see Nerpas (Baikal fresh water seals) where the kayak is the single means of transport that does not frighten animal.

Thus, we put our kayaks into the water of the Tutaysky bay and sailing in the north up to our destination, the Village Uzury situated on the eastern part of Olkhon Island. Starting from crossing of the strait "Olkhonsky Gates", we will go to the north passing picturesque bay - Maloye More, Small Sea, the famous Peschanaya Bay, where we will make a break for the half of the day to discover all its treasures. Many times the itinerary will allow us to walk around the coast, discovering the taiga and the landscapes of the lake.

After 5 days of autonomy journey, we will stay at the homestead in Uzury. There we could have a rest : nice beds and russian banya! The next day you have a free day for sightseeing, enjoying a spectacular view over the lake, beautiful capes and rocks!

Last models of sea kayak of the russian brand Triton, are used to provide security and comfort. These collapsible kayaks have a rigid structure, inflatable edges that make it unsinkable. For navigating and transporting your belongings comfortably, you will seat by two in a three-seat kayak.

Get inspired while reading attentively "Day by Day" and looking at map!
