A turbaza is a Russian type of inexpensive rural-area accommodation that offers outdoor recreation. A turbaza is a perfect choice for romantics who wouldn’t ever want to part with the outdoors, simple homemade food, campfire songs and peaceful banter. We chose 5 popular options that cost from 600 to 16 000 rubles per day.

Veter Stranstvi

This turbaza is located on the coast of Small Sea Strait, 500 meters away from the ferry. A spacious sandy beach is 200 meters away. The beach is a great place for taking a walk, breathing fresh Baikal air and playing volleyball or Frisbee.

This place is perfect for families with children, as the kids will have a special menu and entertainment opportunities. The adults will be busy, too. They can go on a tour around the coast, play a game of pool or make barbeque in a designated area. Accommodation options vary from yurt tents with outdoors toilets to high-comfort rooms.

Available services:

  • A guarded parking lot
  • Tour desk and fishing tours with experienced instructors

  • Two conference rooms
  • An outdoors sports complex with a tennis court
