Irkutsk Tours

Slap bang in the centre of Asia, Irkutsk is a pleasant surprise, a pretty historic gem in the middle of nowhere. It’s also the gateway to the world’s oldest freshwater lake, Lake Baikal (25 million years old — we asked Google). It started life as, you guessed it, a trading centre for gold and fur, and for centuries it has continued to attract passing travelers who are seduced by its unique atmosphere, traditional wooden architecture, and fascinating history.
