Title
Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world. The maximum depth is 1642 meters. Its age is estimated in millions of years. Thanks to its fresh water, ice is so crystal clear that it creates a feeling that you can see the bottom of Baikal. Maximum thick ice appears on the north of Baikal and may reaches two meters. Average thickness is about 60-90 cm, which allows you to walk around not only on foot but also by car (even cargo).
During freezing ice in the lake exists in various forms, but the most beautiful and graceful of them is hummocks – pile of rubble ice. Usually they are formed along slits or along the coast and can reach 10-12 meters.
Practically the whole tour will take place by hovercraft. You will pass almost the whole Baikal from the west (Listvyanka, Olkhon island) to the north coast (Cape Kotelnikovsky, Khakusy area).  After you will go to the east one (Chivyrkuisky Bay, pos. Ust-Barguzin), then by car to Ulan-Ude and by train to Irkutsk.
Some accommodation will be in guest houses of local people in order to see the life of ordinary habitants, to sit at the same table with the owners, talk about life on the lake, festivals, traditions, customs.
