Your NewBaikalWay 

Our special programs

We would like to invite you to learn the Russian language in Irkutsk. Our individual course can be tailored to improve your personal reading, listening, speaking, or grammar skills. You may also be trained at practical communication skills. You can choose the dates of your courses as well as the type of accommodation: hotel, hostel or homestay. Being part of a Russian host family is an excellent opportunity to learn Russian in an authentic environment.

We invite you to Russian Cooking Course! You can learn Russia’s unique cuisine taught by friendly world-class professional chefs or by skilled hostess who will open to you all the secrets of home-made Bortsch, traditional Tschi soup, the famous Russian Salad called by us Olivier, baked Blini, Pirozhki and Varenniki.

Take an Ethnographical tour to Buryat village Ust-Orda, located 50 km from Irkutsk, and you will plunge into a unique atmosphere of traditional way of life of this ancient Siberian folk which has handed down its traditional culture across the generations. During the tour you will visit the Local Lore Museum to get acquainted with these people’s customs. After taking part in a shaman rite you will be invited to taste traditional dishes of Buryat cuisine.

The unique opportunity to visit the most picturesque places of the deepest lake in the world is to take part in a Cruise on the Baikal Lake. The vast land around the Lake is very rare visited by the tourists because there is no way to travel there by land. Cruise on the Lake Baikal is not only a romantic kind of tour, but also a chance to explore the wild and untouched nature, to admire magnificent landscapes and to feel the Baikal majesty and energy filling you.
