Walking on Frozen Lake Baikal in Winter
Baikal tours are a journey to the very heart of Siberia, an energy-filled locale or "place of power" which is said to leave a lasting impression on its visitors. Baikal is not only the oldest and deepest lake in the world, but also the cleanest: the water here is so transparent that you can see stones lying at a depth of 40 meters.
Lake Baikal offers a whole range of activities: Visit Olkhon Island, which is rife with shamanistic legends; taste the famous omul whitefish; spot some cute seals in their natural habitat; ride on the historic Circum-Baikal Railway; and even go ice skating and skiing in wintertime.
