First rule: Define the season well.
Yes, Baikal is always good. But if you are a beach holiday lover, want to swim and lie on the sand, then you should not plan a trip to Lake Baikal in June or September, if you are not a walrus, of course. Your time is July and August.
Second: Decide on a place
Baikal - it is big and different. Warm beaches are on Olkhon and the Small Sea, fishing is good in Chivyrkuy, and in Northern Baikal there are hot springs of great strength. But walking and horseback riding excursions, descenting into the caves, ascent into the mountains and diving are available almost everywhere.
Rule Third: Study the schedule of events.
If you like active leisure, get to know the schedule of festivals. There are many of them on the lake, mainly in summer, in early autumn and in February-March, when the frost is not so severe, and Baikal still does not think to melt. Festivals can be found to any taste - music and biker, literary and fishing, ceramic and carvers on the ice. And, of course, nobody canceled the New Year on Baikal
Rule Fourth: Consult specialists:
Here, of course, is the question of a choice. There are travelers who are accustomed to fix up everything and always organize themselves. They succeed easily, many even get pleasure from the process of selecting parts of the tour, connecting flights and choosing hotels. But not everyone succeeds. If you are also not one of those, do it easier. A trip to Baikal is your idea and your rest, and entrust the implementation to professionals. Take a break from the eternal stress.
Rule Five: Be sure to visit Irkutsk
Actually, you can not avoid it. Traveling to Lake Baikal implies that in any case you will be in the city, even though it is only for a few hours. Arrange the the whole time well so that case - shopping and bringing souvenirs back home will become your completed step. Walk through the old city center, look at the houses of the famous Siberian baroque. Visit the 130th quarter, take a selfie with babr. In the historic quarter, you will see architectural monuments of wooden architecture, raised in the XVIII century. And also a mandatory point where you should visit is the nerpinary. You will not see the trained Baikal seals anywhere else.
