The real Altai. Combined tour

The ring route is always the best thing in the region. Our tour contains popular attractions of the Altai Mountains, as well as those that are inaccessible to ordinary tourists. 

It can be very hot in Altai in summer. The coolness of the Sofia glacier, the spray of the Kurkure and Korbu waterfalls, rafting on the Chulyshman River, a boat trip on Lake Teletskoye will make the trip comfortable even in the most unbearable heat.
