Altai is really wonderful at the end of September. The river banks of the Biya and the Katun are covered with yellow and red autumnal colours that together with water turquoise make up a picture of indescribable natural beauty. Snowy peaks at the Aktru valley with golden larch relict forests on the background, under the autumnal blue sky, can easily inspire even those who have seen autumn in Altai for many times.
The sequence of the tour program activities might be changed due to the weather conditions or other factors.
We will have our own professional chef, who will be taking care of early breakfasts, outdoor lunches and dinners at the hotels and yurta houses. You will have no need thinking of what to cook and how to manage to buy a coffee, seeking an appropriate place while in the tour. All these chores are the responsibility of the cook. And excellent fresh food will always please you and give you strength, so that you are not distracted from your favourite business.
