Irkutsk - listvyanka village - Olkhon island - Irkutsk

Olkhon island is a focus of everything that is typical for the Lake Baikal. The island is suitable both for leisure and outdoor activities - in summer it is usually sunny, and the water in Little sea (strait between the island and mainland) is warmer then anywhere else in the lake. Wonderful sand beaches make Olkhon island a popular destination for tourists. If you do not feel like this "passive" pastime, you can make a canoe trip or go hiking or horse riding to its south rocky coast which is more wild and difficult to access.
