Travel to Listvyanka village (65 km from Irkutsk), located on the shore of Lake Baikal at the source of the Angara River.

We will visit the Ethnographic Museum in Taltsy village. The unique park-museum under the open air, where you can see a collection of architectural artefacts that were doomed to drown during the construction of numerous hydroelectric stations on the Angara River.

A Russian lunch at the “Tavern”.

We will make a stop at the Shaman Stone, admire the beauties and recall one of the most famous Baikal legends about the Angara River.

We will visit the only Museum of Lake Baikal in Russia.

The Limnological Museum presents very clearly all the information about the Great Lake. Exhibitions are devoted to the history of the lake, the specifics of natural landscapes, seismic environment, the animal world of Baikal and the history of its studying.

The aquarium in which tourists can study Baikal fish, crustaceans and even cute and modest nerpas (Baikal seals) is everyone’s favorite exhibition.

On the second floor you will get acquainted with the tiniest inhabitants of Baikal. With the help of electric microscopes, it is possible to study tiny crustaceans, worms, fish eggs etc. in detail.

At the end of the tour you will virtually dive into pure Baikal water. You will have an opportunity to become real researchers!

Breakfast.

A walk to the drinking water well.

On Buryat land there is a law: if you took something, you should give something else in return. If a person drank the healing water, that was given by the spirits (ezhyn) of the sacred place, he should leave something as a sign of gratitude. As guests, we will perform a gratitude ceremony, treat ezhyn with wine, tie up satin ribbons as a sign of great respect and continue our tour. On the departure day, we will honor the spirits of Arshan, pray for health and longevity, and thank the spirits for a wonderful stay.

Walk around the waterfalls of the Kyngarga River.

The mineral waters of Arshan are good for the gastrointestinal tract. Pure mountain air combined with mineral water has a wonderful healing effect for tired citizens, and a path to the waterfalls of Kyngarga River according to ancient beliefs prolongs human life for as many years, as many times he has been to Arshan.

We will definitely visit Khoymorskiy datsan, located in a quiet and peaceful place near Arshan village.

A traditional building in oriental style with observance of all the Buddhist rules. As a sign of respect, we will go through the Goroo (circle) clockwise for purification from bad acts that were committed in current and past lives, then spin the prayer cylinders to activate mantras within them, and only after that we will go inside the temple (optional).

We will get a great amount of energy, visiting the hot springs and curative mud of Zhemchug village. There is nothing like a nice hot mineral outdoor shower! Methane baths relax, restore our nervous system and have an anti-aging effect. Mineral mud is used for musculoskeletal system treatment. The healing springs of Zhemchug village are recommended as a treatment of male and female diseases.

Cape Khoboy is the northernmost Cape of Olkhon Island.

When you stand on a rock at the very edge and below there are miles of water, it seems that this is the edge of the Earth, that brave explorers and fearless characters of Russian tales were looking for…

There our path lies. To get to the north of the island, you need to overcome: a steppe landscape with incredible ascents and descents, very similar to a roller coaster, a sandy tract and impassable taiga.

Купили с женой этот тур и не пожалели. Нам очень понравилось. Отдых активный, как мы любим. Ни одной свободной минутки. Прекрасная погода, чистый воздух, ну и конечно красоты Байкала. В таких местах даже думать начинаешь по-другому, не как в городе. Мелкие проблемы уходят, голова проясняется, восприятие мира обостряется. Замечательные места и замечательный тур. Спасибо организаторам!

Прекрасный тур, реально выбрав его я отдохнул не только телом, но и душой, помимо всего прочего, приобрел кучу новых знакомств, организовано все очень круто. Увидел наверно если не самые красивые места Байкала, то уж точно одни из самых красивейших, и вот честно я теперь понимаю почему говорят, что у нас ничем не хуже, чем в той же Турции, с этим я согласен, этот тур открыл мне на многое глаза.

Вернулись недавно с подругой с великолепно проведенного тура по Байкулу. Спасибо данному туроператору за возможность так глубоко окунуться в мир Байкала. Программа тур "Ветер странствий" получилась очень насыщенной. Более всего понравилось погружение в пещеру Тажеранских степей, очень захватывающе. Ну а купание в водопаде так расслабляло, я чувствовала себя как в раю. Спасибо Вам большое.
