Moscow - Trans-Siberian - Irkustk - Ulan-Ude
This incredible immersive rail trip will conduct you to the heart of Siberia : the majestic Baikal Lake and its surroundings.
As always with Immersion in Russia, the time of this long journey will be used to initiate or improve your knowledge of the Russian language and culture. Your cultural rail trip will take you to the “Paris of Siberia” - Irkutsk - with its typical old wooden houses and its powerful and mythic river: the Angara. You will then discover Olkhon - the sacred island of Lake Baïkal - and its shamanic rituals, before sailing to the Buryat part with its astonished wild sand beaches and its multicultural capital Ulan-Ude, where your trip will end.
