About the program:
Meeting your guide in Irkutsk. The trip to Olkhon Island takes 5-6 hours with stops along the way. The road to the island is a modern highway. Then ferry to the island. After the arrival - a short rest, walk to the Shamanka rock in the evening. This place is considered sacred among the locals. At this point we greet the local god Burkhan in order to thank him for allowing us to be on the island.
The next day - an automobile excursion to Cape Khoboy in the northern part of the island. Along the way, we make several stops. We travel by car UAZ. This is the most reliable transport for moving around the island. At Cape Khoboy lunch-picnic with a rich soup and tasty tea, cooked on the fire.
On the third day we travel to the southern part of the island. We will find out who the Kurykans are, look at the village of Khuzhir from the observation deck. With good weather, we will swim in the warm Bay of Baikal.
Another day on the island of Olkhon is a day of rest. On this day you can relax on the beach, take a walk around the island, ride a bicycle, play with children on the playground.
The journey ends with departure from the island to Irkutsk.
During the trip you will be accompanied by a professional guide.
I recommend this program for holiday with children, for active grandparents, for friends and, of course, for everyone who wants to make a trip to Baikal.
