Seeking a genuine adventure? Here's why people travel to Siberia, Russia.

While some still puzzle over the appeal of a trip to Siberia, others see it as a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, an astonishingly diverse region of forests and frozen lakes, snow-capped mountains, windswept coasts, isolated villages, and thriving cities.
