Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Listvyanka. The Chersky Stone. Baikal Museum

    Your bright adventure begins right now! 

    Key emotions for the next few days: delight, a boost of energy, sincere surprise: “Is Siberia really so beautiful?!” 

    We will meet you at the airport.

    The first destination is the village of Listvyanka.

    Here you will see the shore of Lake Baikal. 

    Including from a height: we will take the cable car up to the Chersky stone. 

    This is an observation deck with a magnificent view of the shore and the surface of the lake. 

    A great idea for the first day is to get acquainted with the history at the Baikal Museum.

    The guide will make the tour as easy as possible: discover the legends of the lake, explore the local fish and seals – cute seals that live only on Lake Baikal. 

    In the evening, we check into the Krestovaya Pad hotel and relax after a busy day.
