This tour combines classic Baikal adventures and a trip deep into the taiga, to hide away in a very remote and isolated manor, accessible only by a 4X4 or a helicopter. Russian bears inhabit the area in abundance and you will have a guaranteed and safe bear viewing in the wilderness. For a few days, we will stay in a real Siberian hunter's house.
