Protected Areas of Lake Baikal

There are 3 reserves, 2 national parks and 7 game reserves open on the coast of Lake Baikal today. Two of the reserves — Barguzinsky and Baikal — are among the 39 Russian reserves that received the UNESCO status of biosphere reserves.

These nature parks are open to visitors all year round and are ready to welcome tourists from all over the world. Volunteer programs have been launched and successfully operate almost in all of them, they also hold special themed tours and excursions for those who are interested in learning more about the animals of Baikal, its birds, plants, or for those who just want to walk along one of the nature trails of these reserves.

Each of these reserves plays a special part in the preservation of Lake Baikal. Our infographics will show you when and why they were created.
