Getting there & away

Five daily buses (R30, 1ΒΌ hours) and roughly hourly marshrutky run from List- vyanka port to Irkutsk passing the Limnological Institute and Taltsy museum. Taxis from Irkutsk want at least R1000.

Mid-May to late September, hydrofoils stop at Listvyanka port between Irkutsk (R180) and Bolshie Koty (R80) at least daily, more frequently at weekends.

Year-round a tiny, battered car-ferry lumbers across the never-frozen Angara River-mouth to Port Baikal from Rogatka. It supposedly departs at 8.15am, 4.15pm and 6.15pm but times are by no means guaranteed.

Various short trips by yacht, fishing boat or even hovercraft are available at the main port depending on the season. For longer cruises inquire well ahead through Irkutsk agencies.
