Then Baikal Lake is what you are looking for! The deepest lake in the world in Russian Siberia is a great opportunity for real adventures and wonderful vacations in the wild nature. You can have a great time here in summer as well as in winter. You can find any kind of activities here - skiing and skating in winter, fishing, hiking, kayaking, horse-riding, bird-watching and animal-watching in summer, and many other exciting things to do.
We suggest that you make the first stop in one of the most beautiful places on Baikal - Bolshie Koty, a small hideaway village, 90 km (56 miles) from Irkutsk.
Staying here for a few days, you will have a good chance to start your acquaintance with the Lake without losing usual comfort.
Uniqueness of the village is provided by absence of traffic and trains - the only way to get here is a boat or your own feet. And at the same time you will find all necessary services in our cozy hostel.
