Visit Baikal Museum, Shaman Rock, St. Nicholas church and a Fish Market. Baikal Museum is a splendid museum where information about lake Baikal wildlife is kept, studied and exhibited: including the origins of the lake, the endemic flora and fauna from the surface of the lake to its maximum depth, an excellent model of the lake, etc. Shaman Rock is a natural boundary between the deepest lake in the world and the only river that flows out of the lake—the Angara river. Apparently, locals have thousands of legends about this place, which is believed to be the house of one of the Buryat gods. Spend afternoon at the shores of the frozen lake Baikal, with plenty of optional activities available.

For travelers arriving to Baikal from January to March, we offer optional Hover boat cruise across frozen Lake Baikal. We can reach the most picturesque bays and creeks by this special winter transport. Lifehack: when you buy winter clothes for Baikal, opt for bright colors, it is so much better for the images with a touch of pink and yellow, in this totally white land!
