The Altai Republic, a less-travelled part of Russia, is an ideal destination for lovers of untouched nature, unique experiences, and off-the-beaten-track places. Take a private Altai tour with us to explore or trek the region’s stunning mountains, lakes, rivers, caves, and glaciers, and journey along one of the 10 most-beautiful roads in the world, the Chuysky Tract. Discover Altai’s culture by visiting historical museums, ethnoparks, and Russian Orthodox churches, as well as learning about Shamanic rituals, tasting traditional cuisine, and listening to throat singing. Participate in unique activities like sleeping in a house built on beehives, taking a traditional Russian sauna, helping construct an ecological trail, or learning how to cook pelmeni (Russian dumplings). Our private Altai tours can be combined with visits to Siberia’s crown jewel, Lake Baikal, or to Mongolia, to experience the lives of nomads – see the sample itineraries below or request a tailor-made tour!
