There are so many opportunities that the winter season offers to motorists, like the famous winter roads that replace the hardly passable mud paths and the lake with a depth of 1500 km. BaikalNature invites you to take advantage of these opportunities and would like to present to you a new exclusive tour - off-road expedition around lake Baikal. 10 unforgettable days of adventure, during which you will take a ride around the lake and also pass more than 400 km by ice.
Moreover, you will:
bathe in thermal hot springs where the temperature of water reaches 50 degrees,
spend a night in a true fisherman's yurt on the ice,
travel to the largest peninsula on lake Baikal,
enjoy the unforgettable views of giant ice hummocks (up to 5x meters in height),
visit the village of Old Believers - Tarbagatay and the center of Buddhism in Russia – datsan of Ivolginsk. And if luck is on your side, you will get a chance to see the nerpas – famous lake Baikal endemic seals.
During the tour you will also visit 2 capitals of Baikal region - Irkutsk and Ulan-Ude, and travel along the longest railway lines in the world - the Baikal–Amur Mainline and Trans-Siberian.
The full length of the Trans-Siberian railway is more than 9200 km and we will join this great route for a short but its most picturesque segment - from Ulan-Ude to Irkutsk, part of which runs along the shore of lake Baikal.
As for the trip along the Baikal-Amur Mainline, running for more than 4,200 km, here we will compete in the speed with trains going for 135 km from Ulkan to Severobaikalsk.
Baikal-Amur Mainline runs north of and parallel to the Trans-Siberian railway departing from it at Tayshet. Its construction began in 1938 and was carried out mainly by prisoners of correctional camps and later by volunteers.
For your transportation during the trip we provide specially equipped off-road vehicles - Toyota Land Cruiser, known for their power and maneuverability.
