Lake Baikal Ice Adventure

From US $2,897

Spring is undoubtedly one of the best times to embark on Baikal ice adventure. It is a time where you can experience all the beauty of this frozen lake without being scared by the severe Siberian winter. In March, the temperature is above zero, but the ice is still solid and crystal clear. During your trip you will get to experience closeness to Siberia and its wild that you have never felt before.

You will feel the beautiful isolation of nature during this hand crafted tour. We sure you’ll be amazed by frozen beauty of Baikal. We speed things up as you will get to experience dog sledding, snowmobiles, ice skating, hovercraft rides and many more activities; including the most unique experiences — ice rafting and swimming in the ice hole after a steamy Russian Sauna! Try local cuisine: Siberian sashimi and fish skewers on a picnic, organised in the middle of the frozen lake.
