Fantastic Winter Baikal

Tours to Lake Baikal are for those who want to escape the stress which comes with modern civilization and appreciate the beauty of nature with its wealth of wildlife. Baikal's landscapes boast astonishing colors at any time of the year, making a winter trip to the lake not less memorable or adventurous.
