Due to the unique features of the lake water, by the beginning of spring the ice turns into a beautiful work of art - surprisingly transparent, covered with unusual patterns of cracks, and the ice on the rocks is very similar to whipped cream - they are so white and airy!
During the hike on the ice we will spend the night in warm tents with a stove, so Siberian frosts will not be terrible for us :)
Olkhon Island, around which the hike will be held, is an amazing place with a unique microclimate - there is an negligible amount of precipitation per year, and the number of sunny days per year is 310. Therefore, you don't have to worry about the weather - the beginning of March almost always sunny. we will spend the night mainly in tents. Therefore, you need to stock up on warm clothes and a good sleeping bag. On the route, there are 5 overnight stays in tents and 2 overnight stays in cabins at the camp site. A big plus of this hike is that you will not need to carry a backpack on yourself all the time - on the ice we will use drag sleds, which will greatly facilitate our life.
Among other things, Olkhon is a Buryat place of power - here Buddhist and pagan shrines and motives are intricately intertwined - practically every place where we will be is covered with legends and legends - beautiful, wise, and sometimes frightening.

I liked the Baikal Odyssey tour: a very rich and interesting program, they showed all the main attractions, the diverse nature of excursions, interesting customs and traditions of different peoples of Siberia were shown. Everything was great.
Leave a request for a vacation on Lake Baikal. We will select a travel program for you based on your wishes
Tour operator "Baikalik" invites hikers to visit the most beautiful places of Lake Baikal. We offer you hiking tours Baikal. Participants in the hikes will enjoy beautiful views, clean air and healing mineral springs. You will see snow-capped mountain peaks against the background of fields of bells and fries, emerald mountain lakes, rivers that form beautiful waterfalls. A trekking trip along the Eastern Sayan will allow you to go through mountain trails.
Baikal is located on the territory of the Irkutsk region and the Republic of Buryatia. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. To see the natural miracle with their own eyes, not only Russians come to its shores, but also tourists from Europe, the USA, China, Australia and other countries of the world. The deepest lake on the planet is a narrow crevice in a mountain range more than one and a half kilometers deep. The crevice is filled with perfectly clean water.
The area of Baikal is equal to the area of Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands combined. The lake is the eighth largest lake in the world. Scientists have meticulously calculated that there is more water in it than in the Baltic Sea. Only one river flows out of Baikal - the Angara. If the lake had not been fed by other sources, it would have taken the Angara 400 years to completely empty the reservoir.
Baikal is one of the leading Russian tourist brands known all over the world. The lake is beautiful in any season. Summer is a time for hiking and water travel, as well as recreation in boarding houses and tourist centers. Winter is good for skiing, hiking on ice, and snowmobiling. Most of the tourist routes start in Irkutsk.
Irkutsk can be called the “gateway to Baikal”. The local airport receives a large number of flights from different cities of Russia. All trains on the Trans-Siberian Railway from west to east and back pass through the railway station. It is only 65 kilometers from the city to the lake. You can get to the coast by bus, minibus or taxi.
The ancient city deserves to stay here for a few days after the hike. One day is definitely not enough. You should definitely visit the so-called Square of Three Churches, where the most beautiful temples of the city are concentrated. If you want to see a wooden "lace", you are welcome to the "House of Europe" complex with the Shastins' estate, richly decorated with carvings.
There are places associated with the Decembrists and Admiral Kolchak. You can hang out in the 130th block for the whole day. A large area of historical buildings has a pedestrian zone and many interesting places - from museums to unusual restaurants. It is convenient to explore the city by walking along the excursion "Green Line". You will definitely see her on the sidewalk.
Trekking programs including visiting Irkutsk:
Listvyanka is the main tourist center on Lake Baikal. If not everyone gets to Olkhon, the second most popular, then almost everyone who came to the lake has visited Listvyanka. The village stretches along the coastal line. It is a series of guest houses, cottages, hotels, boarding houses and cafes. In the summer, life in Listvyanka is in full swing.
For 8 days we will have an active rest on the sacred Baikal, shackled with emerald ice, shimmering in the sun. We will visit the “heart of Baikal” - Olkhon Island, see the Buddhist Stupa of Enlightenment on the Ogoy Island, the legendary shaman cape Burkhan, admire the unique blue ice on Cape Khoboy and be sure to meet the sunrise over the largest lake of our Earth.
