Are you planning a trip in the Altai Mountains? SAIKOL TRAVEL is for YOU

Сайкол Тревел

If you have decided on or planned a trip to the Altai Mountains, then the first step is to communicate with our tour operator SAIKOL TRAVEL.

  • We offer to find solitude without feeling lonely.
  • We show nature in its original state.
  • We immerse you in spaces of amazing beauty that make a powerful aesthetic impression.
  • We offer travelers the level of comfort they are used to in everyday urban environments.

ЕсIf you are experienced travelers, you will appreciate the high level of quality and comfort in organizing your trip

We have become a full-service brand, having implemented the principle of "one window" for the traveler in the Altai Mountains. Starting from the organization of the tour to transport, hotel or tent where the guest arrives – everything is our own, designed, created, tested and "sharpened"for maximum comfort.

Are you going with your family?

We'll organize the camping life so that everyone will appreciate the advantages that are important to them, for example: a wife - a shower, excellent cuisine and a rich texture for publications in profiles, children-the first safe experience of communicating with real wildlife, and a husband (or an older child)-felt like a real pioneer-traveler.

Are you looking for privacy without feeling lonely?

Our offer is not a real escape from civilization but a metered solitude. This is always a comfortable point of view of the real wild nature, with which the traveler wanted to unite not excluding a hot shower and freshly brewed coffee.

Do you need to raise the corporate spirit of employees and encourage the best?

This is not an extreme hike, but a game of hiking: metered and controlled extreme sports while maintaining the comfortable conditions that we are used to in our everyday urban life.

Do you dream of visiting places of power and charging with primordial energy?

An auto trip from SAIKOL TRAVEL is a charge of energy from the "spiritual" nature: panoramic views of mountains, rivers and waterfalls; a way to get in harmony with yourselves; a way to share new experiences and knowledge with friends. This makes it possible to emphasize your exclusivity-to show that you can afford to get "exclusive" and not be in the "mainstream".

Do you want experiences that last longer than traveling?

Our mission is to remove a person from the context of their daily life not renouncing the usual comforts that they could not exchange for trifles but “find themselves” dropping the husk of social masks. This is a “game of adventure” where the path to yourself is not through deprivation but through getting and understanding new experiences.

Geography of tours

This season SAIKOL TRAVEL offers a choice of three districts: Turochak, Kosh-Agach and Ulagan. They are unlike each other in terrain and climate. You can visit any of them or you can prefer our branded tour “Mountain Altai. Small Ring Journeys” How can we objectively compare what is better - the majestic panorama of the Kurai high-mountain steppe or the picturesque Chulyshman valley or the incomparable views of Lake Teletskoye? We will present you the unique natural places of the Altai Mountains in the most spectacular, winning light and you will make your own personal rating of them based on the results of the tour.

Find out more by calling +7 968 222-23-23 and choose your travel option — and welcome to make discoveries that will not leave you the same.

After all, as Henry Miller wrote, "the true purpose of your journey is not a place on the map, but a new outlook on life."
