On the first day of our journey, we will discover by train the south of the lake, travelling the famous Circumbaikal railway, “The gold buckle of Russia's steel belt”. The railway has been built in the 19th century very close to the shores and is truly an engineering masterpiece. In Port-Baikal, where the railway ends up, we cross Angara spring and arrive in Listvianka, a pretty siberian village.
From Listvianka, we hike 2 days trek through taiga and pasture, heading to Cape Kadilny.
We discover Pestchanaya sand bay, its pinewoods and its turquoise water on short walks.
We arrive on Olkhon Island – heart of the lake and buriat sacred land. During our 3 days trek, we discover the whole north of the island: steppe, sand dunes, cliffs and pasture.
We reach the North of the lake Baikal and travel the “Great Baikal Trail” 3 days long. Sand dunes and crashing waves let place to dense taiga, with moss and lichens as dominant ground vegetation.
We sail to Sviatoy Nos Peninsula, discover Chivyrkuy Bay, seabirds’ paradise!
