This is a small, family-run property with 5 dorm beds available in total. There is a kitchen (fridge, crockery, cutlery etc) that you could use if you feel like cooking. The bathroom and toilet are shared and of course there is the washing machine. The property is also our family home and we hope you will feel very happy here too. Experience the outdoor beauty of northern Lake Baikal. Severobaikalsk (Северобайкальск) is a base for coastal and forest trails, village homestays, camping by Lake Baikal and nearby lake, visiting hot springs, and hiking to a Stalin-era gulag mine. Severobaikalsk can be reached by the BAM train line and by hydrofoil from Irkutsk. It is possible to do independent hikes and we can help you arrange transport and could probably answer most of your questions. Guides and guided tours could also be arranged. The Baikal Trail Property is about 1 km from the Severobaikalsk train station and about 2 km from the hydrofoil landing. It was started in 2007 to house Great Baikal Trail (GBT) volunteers and independent travelers. GBT is a Siberian based international effort to build trails in the Lake Baikal region to provide an infrastructure for ecotourism (an alternative to industrial development). See www.greatbaikaltrail.org for projects open to Russian and international volunteers. Our staff is affiliated with GBT. We are concerned with environmental protection and have knowledge about outdoor activities. Your stay helps to support trail-building and environmental protection efforts.
