About this tour

Baikal has boundless lands, but you can explore it not only by car, but also on foot. This tour is a great opportunity to walk through Siberian taiga forest, covered Sacred Lake shores. We will walk for 18 km from Listvyanka to goldminers' village of Bolshiye Koty. During summer this is the only way to go there (except boat), this helps to keep its ecology really clean.
