Day 3
  • This morning we continue our adventure trip on Baikal and will head by snowmobiles to the Mamay Mountain - a local Baikal point of attraction for mountain skiers and snowboarders. This safari takes you on an unforgettable journey to admire beautiful landscapes of winter lake Baikal and stunning views of Khamar Daban Mountain range.
  • This area gets a lot of precipitations throughout the year, that's why snow gets 2.5-5 meters deep here. We will travel with stops en route to enjoy the pure mountain air, superb views and walk in the fairy tale winter forest. Lunch in Mamay chalet.

Day 4
  • After breakfast we get on the amphibious vehicles (Hivus) to take a journey along the ice of Baikal to Listvyanka settlement.
  • We will make stops en route and you will see how unreal it is to be walking on ice, yet still being able to see the bottom of the lake quite clearly. The ice, like the water of the lake, is very clear, pure and slightly blue in colour. It is truly weird to literally be walking on water. You will have a good chance to skate along a wonderful natural ice rink.
  • Upon arrival to Listvyanka we will have lunch at the restaurant, then get on the coach and return to Irkutsk.
  • Overnight at the hotel in Irkutsk. Dinner on your own.
