Authentic Tours to Siberia – explore Lake Baikal with eastories
eastories is a family project which aims to develop environmentally friendly tourism in the Lake Baikal region. We support the people of Baikal by giving them the opportunity to welcome tourists from all over the world and participate in international activities in the region. In this way, we would like to integrate the local community with foreigners and present the authentic life of locals to tourists.
Nowadays, eastories offers tours not only to Lake Baikal but to a few other regions of Russia: Republic of Sakha, Autonomous Okrug of Chukotka, Kolsky District, Republic of Dagestan and Republic of Georgia
