Jack Sheremetoff was born and raised in Irkutsk (Nothing to do with Germany!). “Jack” is his business name – easier to remember for English speaking web surfers. His real name is Evgeny as Onegin and Kafelnikoff.
He’s been self employed for 20 year already, working as a tour guide. A bit later, he set up 3 hostels: Baikaler in 2005, Belka in 2010 and Balalaika in 2014. Then later in 20118 he shut down Baikaler and Balalaika but still keeps Belka. Jack Sheremetoff has been always running the tours and still runs the tours all year round.

Besides of hosteling and guiding activities, Jack is into ice cycling and walking.
This is about the 4 D / 3 N ice cycling in March 2014 (220 km covered from Listvyanka to Elantsy)
This is about 7 D / 8 N walking around Olkhon island in March 2015. (200km covered)
