Lake Baikal is the world’s deepest lake and one of the oldest geographical features, formed millions of years ago. It is believed to contain almost a fifth of our planet’s unfrozen fresh water. Located in the remote Siberian highlands, its ancient legacy lends it an air of mystery. The spectacular landscape of the deep blue lake framed by the rugged Siberian ranges is a paradise for photographers and nature lovers alike. Outdoor sports lovers have much to do all year round with wildlife tours, biking and hiking along the many trails in the summers. You could go ice skating and dog sledding in the bitter winter months. The main city connected to the lake is Irkutsk. It lays on the banks of Angara River, which feeds into Lake Baikal and is about a 50 minute drive from the lake. It is the perfect base to exploring the region, having easy access to the lake as well as shops and restaurants in town.
