Dear Friends!

We offer a very very convenient service  : we have a DOOR-TO-DOOR shuttle service to / from OLKHON ISLAND. The minibus picks up our guests from the hostel and – in 6-7 hrs – it delivers then to the main town of Olkhon island, named Khuzir to the front door of OUR GUESTHOUSE or any other guesthouse.

The one way ticket is 900* Rub, return 1800 Rub  CONVERTER 

* luggage included. A bicycle is 500 Rub extra.

We also have a guesthouse there for 1300 Rub / night / person. MORE THERE So, if you wish to visit for 3 day / 2 night, we can arrange it all for 1800 Rub (transportation) + 2600 Rub (accommodation) = 4400 Rub

I suggest to book the return ticket. If you do not know when you wish to return, we sell open date tickets. PLease contact my manager to purchase the ticket. Please note that WE SELL TICKETS TO EVERYBODY!

To book the tickets and Rural Hostel, please e-mail us your request at or fill up the BOOKING FORM

Olkhon minibus time table:


SUMMER DAILY:  twice a day at around 10 am from Baikaler Hostel door (arrives to Khuzir at 16.00) and around noon from Baikaler Hostel door. (ask the up-to-date time!)

WINTER DAILY:  once a day at around 10 am from Baikaler Hostel door. Please note that during the ice freezing / melting seasons, you’ll have to pay extra 400 Rub for the hovercraft transfer.

Please note the the last minibus in 2015 goes there Dec the 30th. Next minibus will only January the 3rd , 2016!!! Take this into account whole planning a trip to Olkhon island!


SUMMER DAILY:  at around 9 am from Rural  Hostel door (arrives to Irkutsk at 15-16.00)


As said before, we could only find one easy way to get to the island. A mini van picks you up from your hotel/hostel in Irkutsk and drops you at your destination in Khuzhir.
We used the Hostel company The Baikaler for two tickets of 1800 rubles each, return. This has to be pre-booked in person at the hostel, in summer you must book the day before.
They also offer a one way ticket with you then finding your own means of return.
We were not staying at The Baikaler hostel, nor were we staying at their sister hotel on the island. They offer this service to anyone. Full post is here:
