Altai special

Altai is a place with magnificent mountains, roaring rivers, snow white glaciers, where silver waterfalls,  bottomless lakes are born, and gray cliffs are covered with portraits of primitive people. One of the world’s delightful roads takes you to the heart of this region, where the marathon distance goes through descents of the “Taiga” forest and where locals’ hearts beat in accordance with Shaman’s drums. Many rich tour programs start here. You will see more wild places that not so many tourists can reach, stay in beautiful hotels, enjoy a dinner outside with the best views, have fun at night by the fire and surely feel this memorable atmosphere.

In many places where we organize active tours, there are no big shops and no drugstores in the area. Therefore, essentials should always be with you, because sometimes you won’t find a place to buy it from miles away. If you need some special brand of cosmetics or some rare drugs, we recommend bringing them with you. We also advise you not to take a lot of things to not overpay for luggage. Trust us, you don’t need a lot of clothes on an active journey. But it is important that you always have a spare set of clothes and shoes to have something to change into, in case of rain or even snow.Are plane tickets included in the tour price?
