About this tour

Tour to Olkhon, the biggest island on the Lake, is one of the most inspiring and mystic experiences. It is a special place by its energy, which can not leave anyone indifferent. Just here Shamanka Rock is located, where local shamans still perform their rituals and speak with spirits of the past and buryat people tell legends and srories about all the rocks and hills and you will know the most interesting. Landscape is totally different from other parts of the lake - instead of forest soft-shaped hills and sand dunes look into deep blue water of Baikal. For visiting in winter please read Day Iced Tour to Olkhon Island!

The ferry is the only way connecting the island and mainland during all the year except two months of winter, when ice road for cars is opened.
12:00

Khuzhir village. Shamanka Rock

Khuzhir is located in central part of the island. Just next to the village is Shamanka Rock, the most energetic place where local shamans still carry out their rituals. We will see many colorful stripes attached to 13 polls, symbolizing the most powerful family of Eagles, lived at the island long time ago. For us, modern people, it's more place to take classic view photo, but maybe you will also feel something peaceful and good in the mind and soul.
13:00

Kharantsy cape and village

We pass through the village where the airport served local flights to and from Irkutsk. The airport is still maintained by one family, which took this mission since middle of 20th century. "Kharantsy" means "watcher", that is why we see great views from the cape.

The Cape of Three Brothers

This is one the most beautiful spots of the Northern Baikal, the cape is formed from light-color marble, covered by lichens, grown only at places with really clean air. This is the widest part of Lake Baikal, about 80 km. Of course, we will know the legend about these brothers.
15:00

Cape Khoboy, famous place of the Power.

It is a special place, where local people met sunsets and thanked local spirits for their kindness and justice.
