Lake Baikal tours

Discover the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world

One of the world’s oldest geographical features, magnificent Lake Baikal is the highlight of Eastern Siberia. Literally meaning “Nature Lake,” Lake Baikal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an astounding 25 million years old, plummeting 1,642m down at its deepest point. Baikal’s depths hold over one-fifth of the world’s unfrozen surface freshwater. It’s so large, ancient Chinese travellers called it “The North Sea.” The Baikal region is an easily accessible and fabulously scenic place to get acquainted with a world of uniquely Siberian thrills.
