Things to do

trans siberian express - eastories

One week stay at local family

You are going to live in the cozy wooden house at local family in the small village close to the lake Baikal. Everyday your going to have small excursions around the place and in the evenings you can enjoy a warm Russian sauna. You will experience real Siberian life, where you can see animals completely free, breath the air without pollution and see the stars at night shining so bright.

Winter Lake Baikal

If you are interested in exploring the frozen lake, here we can help you. We are organising small trips around most significant places of Lake Baikal in winter time. These are Olkhon Island with its beautiful caves and rocks but also Barguzin bay and many more. We will do our best to make the experience full of adventure and mystery.

Sightseeing tour Lake Baikal

If you have just few days to visit Lake Baikal, we can adjust a specific tour just for you. We are able to meet you at the airport or railway station and start the adventure right away. After all we will bring you back wherever it might be. All you have to do, is to share your plan with us.

We are located about 270 km from the nearest city – Irkutsk and 60 km from the Olkhon Island. To get to our village, you have to cross the mountains and Taiga forest, the nearest asphalt road finishes 42 km away.

The people here live the way like they did it hundreds of years ago – they go fishing, care about domestic animals and the land. Our village is far from tourist routes – there are no bars or hotels and the local people are friendly and curious about foreigners.

what do they say about eastories trips?

If you are travelling through Siberia, Eastories Farm is not to be missed. It is an extraordinary village, breathtaking scenery and authentic in its cluster of old and new wooden houses. Eastories farm is a working farm. You will literally be in the farm environment. In autumn, this was not the picturesque greenery of a European farm, but the spare practicality of a farm in a part of the world with a harsh climate. You will share the outside toilet and be treated to the wood fired sauna in the evening. If you choose the family will cater for you. What catering! Simple, plentiful farm food. Each meal was a delight. In Autumn, the main activity was walking… to the lake, in the mountains.

I would have loved to have been there in warmer weather for a swim in the pristine waters of the lake. Or in winter to walk on the frozen lake and river. But the colours of Autumn were beautiful, the sky crystal blue, and the weather conducive to walking for hours. Don’t miss this opportunity if you have the chance. Much more than just an AirBNB, its the opportunity to experience a remarkable lifestyle in a magic place.
