Tour Overview

The purpose of this voyage is to make it possible for any person of average fitness level to experience an adventure which is available only in short period of winter season.

During this exceptional trip we will traverse the most beautiful places of the winter Baikal within the maximum safety limits. By hovercraft and by 4x4 (UAZ) we will discover the Baikal ice in all its forms: the frozen rocks and caps, reared transparent plaques, crammed into impenetrable hummocks, polished into huge rinks by the wind, and such immense fields covered by snow.

We will visit winter grottos and their icy curtains, the cape, where the deapest point of the lake Baikal is: 1637m.

In the course of this trip you could meet local fishermen, take part in ice-fishing, and, certainly, you will taste fresh omul, delicacy of Lake Baikal!
