Exciting Christmas holidays on Lake Baikal shores.

Tour Overview

What’s the best time to experience something new and exciting? It’s New Year’s Eve, of course! It’s a magical time when everyone believes in miracles and wishes the best for the year to come. Spend your holidays with BailkalNature on the most beautiful Lake Baikal shores. Your Lake Baikal NYE, will sound like a genuine Siberian fairy tale on the most sacred and purest waters.

Whether you travel with children, with friends or alone, you want to experience active vacations or just spend a great time discovering new landscapes, this trip will really be exciting.

A large number of activities awaits you! Visit the Taltsy Ethnographic Museum, taste Baikal cuisine, see the Baikal Museum and meet nerpa, the Baikal seal, hike up to Chersky Rock, dog-sled in the Siberian winter forest and celebrate New Year’s Eve! Take also some time to rest in a Russian banya and enjoy lakefront bed and breakfast Siberian welcoming atmosphere.

After a loud NYE party, spend the first day of the year aboard a ship sailing along one of the Lake Baikal most beautiful shores. Visit the former gold seeker settlement, Bolshie Koty Village and the 17th century Bolshoye Goloustnoye Village. Gaze at stunning and unique landscapes: at this time of the year, rocks and capes are already covered in ice as a thin layer of ice already forms along the shores. Crossing the misty waters of the lake, you’ll find yourself on sites you can only reach by boat.

You’ll spend overnights at a cosy resort – a chalet in a one of the most picturesque sites in Litsvyanka –, a bed and breakfast and at lakefront Baikal resorts.
