TOUR PACKAGES TO BAIKAL

Genuine Siberian fairy tale on the most sacred and purest waters

 

What’s the best time to experience something new and exciting? It’s New Year’s Eve, of course!  Spend your holidays on the most beautiful Lake Baikal shores. A large number of activities await you! Visit the Taltsy Ethnographic Museum, taste Baikal cuisine, see the Baikal Museum and meet  nerpa,  the Baikal seal, hike up to Chersky Rock, dog-sled in the Siberian winter forest  and celebrate New  Year’s Eve!  Take also some time to rest in a Russian banya and enjoy lakefront bed and breakfast Siberian welcoming atmosphere.

After a loud NYE party on Baikal shore, spend the second day of the year aboard a ship sailing along one of the Lake Baikal most beautiful shores. Visit the former gold seeker settlement, Bolshie Koty Village and the 17th century Bolshoye Goloustnoye Village. Gaze at stunning and unique landscapes: at this time of the year, rocks and capes are already covered in ice as a thin layer of ice already forms along the shores. Crossing the misty waters of the lake, you’ll find yourself on sites you can only reach by boat.

You’ll spend overnights at a cosy and comfortable resort on Baikal shore, a night in the wooden house of a hospitable family and the best hotel of Listvyanka in its centre.

Checklist & Equipment

You will need in Russia in winter:

  • to protect yourself from the cold weather;
  • to protect yourself from the wind;
  • to protect your feet from moisture;
  • to protect yourself from the sun's reflection from ice and snow.

Allow the system of "three layers":

  • The first layer, called "second skin", determines the performance of the other two layers. It will transport sweat to the next layer and dry quickly to avoid cooling after exercise. Therefore forget the cotton retains moisture in the skin and choose underwear in synthetic fabrics.
  • The second layer must keep the heat of the body as long as possible. Warm synthetic or mixed (wool or fleece turtleneck sweater) fabrics, that dry quickly, are preferable.
  • The third layer should protect you against wind and moisture. Choose a jacket, long enough, 100% waterproof, preferably with hood.

Crampons for walking on ice will be provided on the spot.

We recommend you to pack all your stuff in two bags: a small backpack and a large travelling bag.

 

SMALL BACKPACK: will be useful for carrying your personal belongings during the day (camera, film, personal medication, bottled water, etc.) You will also use it as hand luggage during air travel for all your heavy (to lighten the travel bag in the luggage compartment), fragile (camera, etc.) and necessary (toilet bag, etc.) things.

BIG BACKPACK: must contain the rest of your stuff. It will be in the luggage compartment during the flight. You will bring it during some days of the trekking.

 

Recommended checklist

  • Thermal underwear
  • POLARTEC or similar pullover
  • Long sleeve shirts or sweatshirts
  • Sunglasses with filter
  • Flip-flops for banya
  • Down jacket
  • Fleece jacket or warm sweater
  • Comfortable pants
  • Warm gloves or mittens
  • Lipstick
  • Photo / video camera

 

Laundry

Some hotels and inns offer laundry services for a variable sum of money. It is sometimes possible to use laundry services at homestay (when there is running water) for a fee.

 

Visa

You need a tourist visa to travel to Russia. It can be issued for a maximum period of 30 days. Your passport has to be valid for at least six months after the expiry date of your visa and to have at least two blank pages.

 

Money

The Russian currency is ruble. In all cities and many large villages of Russia, you can easily withdraw rubles, using a Visa or MasterCard, from ATMs, located in banks, department stores or hotel lobbies, some of them are open 24 hours a day. If you have euros or dollars  with you, exchange offices will allow you to change them easily in the cities, seldom in the countryside. However, it can be difficult to exchange

traveler's checks, even in cities.

 

Health

No compulsory vaccination.

You need to get a health examination before a great trip. Consult your doctor. Get a dental checkup. If you have health problems that could worsen during the trip, make sure you have taken all your medications with you.

Provide a first aid kit that includes among other items:

  • aspirin or paracetamol,
  • anti-diarrheal pills,
  • antiseptic,
  • adhesive plaster,
  • sterile pads.

If you have individual diseases, make sure you have taken your medications.

 

Medical Form

You should be physically fit enough for this tour.
