In summer we advise you to come to Olkhon by bus or on the "Komet" ( www.vsrp.ru ) speed boat. If you come in your own transport in July-August there is a strong chance you will have to wait in line for the ferry. The ferry is free of charge.
NB If you are travelling by land between 18th May and 15th December you have to cross Baikal by ferry, arriving on the island 35km from Khuzhir. The exact dates for when the ferry is running depend on the weather.
