2 day: Cape Khoboy

Continuing our icy journey, we set off on an excursion to the northern part of Olkhon. Along the way, we make stops at Khuranci Island to see the ice caves and grottos. Every year, they freeze differently – some have large caves adorned with enormous icicles, while others are barely noticeable grottos. Continuing in traditional UAZ-Bukhanka vehicles, we proceed across the frozen surface of Lake Baikal to Cape Three Brothers to admire the frozen sokuys (ice formations). A bit further, and we reach the northernmost point of Olkhon - Cape Khoboy! Around the cape, massive ice floes of beautiful blue color form every year.

Here, the Small Sea connects with the Great Baikal, revealing endless icy expanses before you. We take a walk, capture many photos, and have lunch in the fresh air. After the excursion, we return to the hotel in the village of Khuzhir.

(*In the tour from January 3rd to 7th, the excursion to the northern part of the island takes place across the island itself, providing the opportunity to see the vast expanse of Baikal from the rocky capes of Three Brothers and Khoboy. The route also includes ventures onto the ice and visits to caves near Khuranci Island).

Breakfast, picnic lunch and dinner

3 day: Ogoy island and Cape Khorgoy

Today, there will be even more ice, caves, grottos, and excellent photo locations!

One of these locations is Ogoy Island. The southern tip of this small island is called Dragon Rock or Dragon's Tooth. It's now one of the most recognizable and popular photo spots of the winter Baikal. You've probably seen numerous shots from this place, and today you'll have the chance to capture your own!

We'll also climb to the highest point of the island to enjoy the panorama of the Small Sea and visit the Enlightenment Buddhist stupa.

Baikal's methane bubbles are another goal of our route. These whimsical frozen methane bubbles come in various shapes and sizes. We'll search for them in small bays on the Small Sea.

Throughout the route, we'll also make stops at ice caves and other beautiful spots.

In the evening, we gather for dinner and share our impressions.

(*In the tour from January 3rd to 7th, this excursion will not include a visit to Ogoy Island, as there won't be access to it via the ice at that time).
