Overview

Spend 12 exhilarating days exploring Altai, the land of beautiful untouched nature, archeological mysteries and keeping traditions!

Our adventure holidays’ itinerary combines enjoying fascinating sceneries and observing wildlife, off-road driving and hiking, meeting local people and learning their traditions. It will be also a kind of physical challenge – some of the fantastic viewing points are only reachable on foot. Almost every day of our adventure tour we will explore a new location and you will see how diverse Altai nature is – alpine peaks with eternal snow and broad steppes, dense forests and green valleys, narrow rocky canyons and high-mountain lakes.

Watch wild animals and birds – marmots, ground-squirrels, wild sheep and goats, foxes, eagles, vultures, kites, cranes and many other species. Altai is a home to rare and threatened animals. Under the guidance of a National park ranger, we will check wildcams – to see which wild animals passed the same way not long ago.

Become an observer of thousands of years of Altai history, exploring ancient petroglyphs, stelas and kurgans. Due to low utilization of the lands, they are saved almost in their original state. Many of them are still an enigma for scientists, especially which belong to a mystery civilization of Siberian Scythians (5-2 century BC).

Get to know modern nomads’ way of living. We will communicate a lot with local people in order to understand their traditions and customs.

Join us on this tour and make your holidays a real outdoor adventure!

Accommodation

We will stay in various accommodations, but as we have an outdoor travel mostly in tents. From time to time we will stay in yurts (a nomad tent) or houses. As we travel in remote and wild areas, it can be possible that there are only 2 or 3 houses with 3-5 beds in each. So, be ready to share a room with 2-4 new friends. For washing you will be able to use a Russian banya (sauna) every evening. The toilet in some places is a type of pit latrine. The first and the last night of our nature tour we will stay in a hotel in Gorno-Altaisk. 

Level of fitness

Your level of fitness have to be moderate to good, most places are easy to reach. But we also have in the program of this adventure tour a full day of hiking.

Meal

3 meals a day, prepared by our cook. Some days we will visit local cafes. Usually for breakfast we have milk porridge /scrambled eggs/ cottage cheese/ pancakes and other snacks, for lunch – sandwiches (bread, cheese, sausages, jams, butter, vegetables and so on), for dinner – a salad and a hot meat dish. Drinks – black and green tea, instant coffee.

Weather

August temperature range: +10 °C to +25 °C.
Keep in mind that the temperature during the night can occasionally drop below zero. Rainy days are possible.

Vehicle

We use specially prepared 4WD cars, one of them is a legendary Russian 4WD UAZ Bukhanka (Loaf). This car was not designed for comfort, but it is able to overcome any off-road obstacle and can be repaired in every village. We have upgraded the salon and installed modern seats for our guests..
