Highlights

Altai is gorgeous all the year round. Summer whitewater rivers give place to winter snowy mountains and forests, where you can get only by ski or with the help of special vehicles.
This winter we’ll guide you to the Multinsky necklace of Altai (the range of lakes, located in a valley, surrounded by high mountains).
Something about the peculiarities of the tour:

  • An original route across the most beautiful sights of Gorny Altai, away from common tracks and crowds of tourists.
  • A professional instructor, having twenty years of experience and a great sense of humor.
  • A unique atmosphere of the winter trip, coupled with a soothing spring sun.
  • Reasonable balance of physical activity and minimal necessary comfort will help you to forget about all the work or problems, left at home, relax for real and charge with energy.

The tour doesn’t demand any special equipment, it is suitable for anyone in a good shape (no extreme is intended). The main luggage will be transported by snowmobile, we’ll walk light-handed. We’ll spend nights in cabins.
