Baikal is one of Russia’s most eagerly awaited destinations. With its breathtaking vistas, the lake is known as one of the world’s oldest geographical features, doubling as the planet’s both deepest and largest volume freshwater lake.
Its banks reveal not only vast swathes of beautiful Taiga, the famous Siberian forest, but also prime examples of old Russian wooden architecture and Buddhist shrines, revered by Russia’s largest Buddhist nationality, the Buryats.
Thus, at the intersection of Asian and Russian cultures Lake Baikal is the pearl of the Russian Orient, for many centuries stirring minds of many a traveller and luring them towards its deep blue, constantly agitated waves.
With Pradiz’ Baikal Winter Tour, you have a unique opportunity to explore Baikal’s wintery magic in a blend of luxury and exotics. Try famous Buryat dumplings, see their traditional nomadic yurtas, ride on a hovercraft, or check out an ice hummock. Go dog-sledding over thick zippy ice and devote some of your time to contemplating Russian beauty in the tranquil setting of the East.
