Get your James Bond on in a high speed hovercraft adventure
Seriously, how cool are hovercrafts? They’re not just used to perform crazy stunts in James Bond movies – in Siberia, they’re a real form of transport, and we give you the chance to test out one of these mean machines for yourself! The Hivus is a Russian-built hovercraft, or amphibious boat, equally at home in water or on ice and deep snow. Start with a leisurely cruises around Lake Baikal then kick things up a notch as you fly over the surface at up to 70km h. In winter, the hovercraft is the only way to visit the remote, frozen shores of Baikal, and adrenaline junkies will get a real kick out of the 90kmph speeds the Hivus can hit on snow!
