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.

Nous avons grandement apprécié ce séjour hivernal autour du lac Baïkal. L'agence est très disponible pour nous aider à préparer le voyage et une fois sur place, notre guide a été aux petits soins, nous laissant tout le temps pour profiter du lac !

Je recommande Baikal nature pour la traversée du Baikal, c'est une agence sérieuse, Irina est très sympa et réactive. Tout le séjour s'est bien passé, et je n hésiterai pas à refaire appel à eux pour un futur séjour en Russie.
