Breakfast.

FD Excursion to Lake Baikal and Peschanaya Bay.

Transfer to Listvyanka village.

Excursion to the Peschanaya (Sandy) Bay by “Khivus” (hovercraft).

Being abroad the hovercraft will give you a feeling of a speedy fly over the Baikal Lake ice.

Peschanaya Bay is the pearl of the Baikal; it is located 81 km of Listvyanka between two capes topped with cliffs called Bolshaya Kolokolnya and Malaya Kolokolnya (Big and Small Belfry). Not far from it, there is a small island called Baklany Kamen’ (Cormorant Stone). Ice lace on the shore cliffs, small caves and grottos where one can walk or have a lunch under the stone shelters produce an impression not to forget. The Baikal ice is in some places covered with snow, and in the other, is as clear as at the skating rink. On the way to Peschanaya, you will pass ridges of ice-hummocks which shine and shimmer with all rainbow colors on sunny days resembling miraculous palaces of the Ice Queen.
