Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Barnaul – Belokurikha – Solonovka – Iskra

    Meeting in Barnaul: airport, railway station, hotels of the city (by agreement).

    Accommodation in the maralnik.

    Supper. 

    The Altai maral is a timid, cautious, majestic animal from the deer family.

    Antlers – the uncosted horns of a maral – are a complex of substances created by nature itself with a huge biostimulating force. 

    One of the most effective methods of pantotherapy is antler baths – this is a wellness procedure using an aqueous extract from boiled maral horns.

    The use of antler baths, as well as products of antler maral breeding, increases the energy of the body, improves blood flow, promotes tissue regeneration, especially effectively accelerates the recovery of muscle tissue after its damage as a result of physical exertion, and also slows down the aging process of the body.

    The positive effect is observed no earlier than 4-6 baths (the cost of taking a bath is paid separately).

    Accommodation: maralnik Iskra (facilities on the floor), Lesnaya Skazka (facilities on the floor) in Soloneshensky district.
