Research of Lake Baikal on the traces of famous people. You visit unique places. In May 2006, the world-famous author of "Alchemist" - Paulo Coelho visited Baikal.
During the press conference, he said that one of the most unforgettable impressions of a two-week trip through Transsib was for him bathing in icy Baikal, where he was able to feel the strength of the Russian spirit:
"On Baikal I was immediately gripped by the desire to step into the water. I don 't know what her temperature was, but probably a degree four. When he dipped, he felt as if he had plunged into the heart of Russia. There was an incredible sense of her fortress and strength. "
The lake-sea shines with splendour very near and rolls waves to the shore itself. You will walk along the old Bikal mountain, from the height of which for decades dark nights sent light to the lighthouse brought here from far England.
On the magnificent Baikal beach, we will have a wonderful lunch surrounded by a majestic nature.

Stop At: Lake Baikal, Lake Baikal, Siberian District

"Baikal should seemingly suppress man with his greatness and size - in him everything is large, everything is wide, private and mysterious - he, on the contrary, elevates him. You experience a rare sense of upliftment and spirituality on Baikal, as if in view of eternity and perfection and you were touched by the secret seal of these magical concepts, and you were given the close breath of an all-powerful presence, and you included a share of the magical secret of all substance. You are already, it seems, marked and highlighted that you stand on this shore, breathe this air and drink this water. Nowhere else will you have the feeling of being so complete and so desirable to merge with nature and penetrate it: you will be fooled with this air, buried and carried over this water so soon that you will not have time to question; You visit protected lands that we never dreamed of; And you shall come back with the hope that there is a promised life ahead...
