Hovercraft ride to Circum-Baikal Railway (5 hours)

We invite you to take this excursion by the Circum-Baikal Railway, unique monument of engineering art of the end of 19th century. Constructed on the south-western shore of the lake between Port Baikal and Kultuk settlement, a 84-km-long railway (52 mi) includes 424 engineering structures including 39 tunnels with a total length of 8994 m (5.6 mi). Tunnels and stone galleries of the Circum-Baikal Railway are unique because they were constructed upon non-typical projects and were not reconstructed later, so they keep the initial idea of architectures and engineers of the early 20th century.

Enjoy a 5-hour hovercraft ride to the Polovinnyi cape and see the longest tunnel of the Circum-Baikal Railway. Circum-Baikal railway was built more than a hundred years ago, and is an outstanding landmark of the construction and engineering art. There are a lot of beautifully constructed tunnels and bridges along the way, making Circum-Baikal Raiwlay somewhat of a railway monument.
