Getting there & away
The ferry to Rogatka near Listvyanka (20 minutes) runs year-round, supposedly three times daily at 7.10am, 3.50pm and 5.15pm, but times can change at whim. There are direct hydrofoils to Irkutsk (50 minutes) in summer. All trains come via the very slow Circumbaikal route. For guests, the Yakhont offers speedboat charters (R2000 per hour) and R300 pick-ups to/from Listvyanka.
