Overview

This trip is specially designed for those who want to see the beauty of the Altaian mountains in the winter.
If you already have been in Altai in the summer, do not hesitate to come in the winter, because you will find quite another world with an absolutely fantastic atmosphere.

Conifer trees wrapped in snow blankets, small wooden houses with 1 meter of snow on the roof, just like on old Christmas card. Not frozen, turquois rivers flowing through ice on the banks and all surroundings in the morning covered with mysterious fog. Frozen waterfalls, forming real pieces of art – icicles and frozen splashes, sometimes real lacework created by water. And of course, more snow than you can imagine. If you step off the path, be ready to “swim” as it is not possible to make steps.

There are walks included but without any serious physical loads. We will not spend more than 4 hours outside for these activities. And it is such a great pleasure to return with red cheeks and cold noses in the warm wooden cottages after the outside activities and drink hot herbal Altaian tea.

And what would a winter trip be without huskies?! Communicating with huskies always brings an explosion of emotions and the positive mood which lasts for long.

Besides all this, you will get acquainted with rituals, traditions and beliefs of the local people.
So, join us and come to Altai in winter, enjoy it and you will make memories for a lifetime!!!

Accommodation

We will stay in 2 destinations, first place -2 nights, second place – 4 nights and 1 night in a hotel in Gorno-Altaisk.  In both destinations there is a big cottage with 3-5 rooms and with big halls, so that the whole group lives in one house and can spend the evenings together.
