Lake BAIKAL, WALK ON WATER
Written By Admin
Discover the ethereal winter beauty of Baikal, the world’s oldest and deepest lake, and the warmth of the local people that call its expansive shores ho
Lake Baikal is rightfully upheld as Siberia’s most famous attraction – its clear-as-a-mirror waters are a reflection of Siberia’s wildness, its vastness and its beauty. The crescent shaped lake extends for 636km from north to south and is up to 1,637m deep, making it the deepest lake in the world. In fact, 20% of the world’s fresh water is contained within Lake Baikal. The vast Baikal region is home to unique indigenous cultures such as the Buddhist Buryati people. Traditional villages are dotted along the lake’s shore, interspersed with taiga forest and rocky steppes.
This tour takes place in winter to provide guests with the unique opportunity to experience winter sports on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal and a trip to the region’s spectacular ice caves. This tour also has a strong cultural component, including a visit to a Buryat village and a Russian homestay experience. Our Lake Baikal Discovery begins in the historic city of Irkutsk, an increasingly tourist-friendly city with excellent amenities and interesting 19thcentury architecture.
