Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Irkutsk – Olkhon

    Our guide will meet you at Irkutsk airport. 

    Here you will meet the rest of the group and our journey will begin! 

    The transfer to Olkhon will take place in comfortable minibuses. 

    We get to the ferry crossing. 

    You will see snow-white seagulls circling overhead, crystal clear water and stunning landscapes of the Maly Sea and Olkhon Island. 

    This is where our vacation really begins! 

    Check-in at the hotel, and after a sightseeing tour of Khuzhir. 

    Our ultimate goal is to see the legendary Shamanka Rock.

    Along the way, we will pass 13 pillars of Serge – sacred attributes of the shamanic religion. 

    Finally, from the highest point of Cape Burkhan, we will have a view of the magnificent Shamanka. 

    Powerful energy emanates from the rock in concentric waves. 

    She attracts everything around her like a huge magnet. 

    Being with her, you forget about everything in the world. 

    For a while, there is only a mysterious and magical Shaman in the whole world. 

    We recommend you to admire the Olkhon sunset. 

    Imagine how a bright red fireball will slowly descend behind the mountain ranges of Lake Baikal. 

    This spectacle should not be missed in any case!

    Power on: No power on.

It's important to know

Personal equipment you need for the tour
  • Windbreaker. Must hev is a waterproof windbreaker, preferably with a Gore-tex or Omni-Tech membrane, for example, Columbia or Helly Hansen. The jacket made of light fabric washes well after a hike to the caves and dries quickly. 
  • A warm jacket. It can be cold in the evenings and in rainy weather. If you are cold, choose clothes made of a material marked Windblock – it reliably protects from rain and wind. For example, Bask has them. For those who catch a cold easily, we recommend taking another light jacket and hat.
  • A baseball cap or a panama hat. In summer, the sun bakes here no worse than in the southern resorts. Without a headdress, it is easy to get sunstroke or heat stroke. Choose a light-colored headdress.
  • Long socks. In the Baikal region, ticks are most active in May and July. And although there have been no outbreaks of encephalitis in recent years, you should not forget about precautions. Take several pairs of classic long socks so that you can tuck your pants into them before going into the forest.
  • T-shirts and T-shirts. Take with you some cotton T–shirts and some synthetic ones made of a material with the DryFit system - they remove moisture from the skin and dry quickly. Look in Nike's collections. 
  • Shorts. They will become everyday clothes on hot days. Shorts made of elastic material, such as 4WayStretch, are suitable. 
  • Sweatpants. Any fleece pants, tights or regular sweatpants will do. If you are traveling for more than a week, take two pairs – one that dries quickly and is warm for the evening.
  • Running shoes. There are no paved roads here, so it is most convenient to move around in light and quick-drying shoes, which are available from Asics, Nike and Salomon. 
  • Trekking boots. You can expect long walks on the rocks, at the foot of the mountains, wet and slippery soil. If you buy shoes before traveling, be sure to carry them in advance, otherwise you will have to glue corns all the way. Shoes should be light, waterproof and well fixed foot. North Face, Keen and Scarpa have such models.
  • Sandals. It is good if they are with foot fixation or closed toe. Pay attention to the models from Salomon with the Contagrip sole – it provides better grip on the soil. 
  • Flip-flops or slates. They will be useful in the room if there is a cold floor, as well as for going to the sauna or swimming pool. There are no special requirements for them, the main thing is that they do not slip, and it is convenient for you.
  • A sports bag. Suitcases are too bulky, so they are inconvenient to transport. Choose bags with sturdy handles and the option of cross-body socks. High-quality and indestructible models are made by North Face. 
  • A small backpack. It is convenient for transitions / crossings and is indispensable for hiking. One backpack for two is enough, with a volume of no more than 20 liters and a rain cape. For example, Osprey and Arcteryx produce models with a convenient frame. There you can put a camera, thermos, snack, hat, documents.
  • Sunglasses. The sun is active at high altitudes, UV rays can damage the eyes. Choose glasses with light polarization – they reduce glare from water and snow, protect your eyes and do not distort color perception. They will be useful during skiing or boating on a yacht. In order not to run into a fake, buy an accessory from well-known brands, for example, RayBan and Oakley. 
  • Sunscreen. You can get burned in one day, so you will have to protect your skin daily. Choose a convenient spray format or a compact stick with high SPF.
  • Medicines. We recommend collecting a universal mini-first aid kit: antipyretics, painkillers, diarrhea remedies, digestive aids, antihistamines, antibiotics, etc. Unusual climate, seafood delicacies – it is unknown how the body will react, so it is better to be safe. 
  • A sports bag. Suitcases are too bulky, so they are inconvenient to transport. Choose bags with sturdy handles and the option of cross-body socks. High-quality and indestructible models are made by North Face. 
  • A small backpack. It is convenient for transitions / crossings and is indispensable for hiking. One backpack for two is enough, with a volume of no more than 20 liters and a rain cape. For example, Osprey and Arcteryx produce models with a convenient frame. There you can put a camera, thermos, snack, hat, documents. 
  • Repellents against ticks and mosquitoes. There are not many insects, but it can be problematic to buy funds on the spot, so count on it to last until the end of the vacation. It is worth taking aerosols to treat clothes and creams that are applied to the body. 
  • Bathing trunks/swimsuit. If you are waiting for spa treatments, bathing in thermal springs, baths, do not take swimsuits with metal jewelry or rhinestones - they burn the body and lose their appearance from external influences. Choose simple sports models.
  • Clothes for sleeping. While traveling, there are overnight stays in winter quarters or at recreation centers, where it can be cool at night. Warm pajamas will help you stay warm and have a good rest. Many travelers replace pajamas with thin thermal underwear.
  • A headlamp. It will provide optimal visibility in the dark when you return to the hotel after a long tour or gatherings around the campfire. Don't forget to put a couple of spare batteries with it.
