About We will cross the lake on foot in this tour. It is a great experience, it is a must-do activity during winter for everybody. We will see, feel and hear the lake, its snow and ice. 7 kilometers by the ice from one side to another. We will also see Circum-Baikal Railway, which is a unique monument of the engeneering minds of late XIX century. Used to be the most difficult and the most expensive part of the Transsiberian railway, now it is still the most interesting and beautiful one, became a part of Baikal National Park. Visit of this part of railway will give you an understanding of architechture and construction solutions of that days, and the feel of unique nature of the lake.
