Ce sont de véritables fêtes de fin et début d'année en nuit polaire, dans une vaste nature et splendide de surcroît, les aurores boréales, tous les ingrédients réunis pour vivre l'intense dans un manteau neigeux épais. Se débrouiller un peu en langue russe aussi, les échanges en sont facilités, et les gens viennent a vous tout comme vous allez à leur rencontre. J'ai vraiment tout aimé, le contact

Скажу честно, что привыкнув к путешествиям по морским городам и теплым пляжам, я относилась к первому моему «зимнему» путешествию с осторожностью. Но я очень ошибалась! Таких невероятных событий, веселых и сказочных приключений, таких живописных снежных пейзажей перед глазами в моей жизни не было никогда! Я как будто побывала в сказке. Дни прошли как один час и впечатления, оставшиеся на всю жизнь,

My trip with Baikal Nature was amazing, with Pavel as our guide. All the logistics were taken care of and everything ran smoothly. The food was great, and there was always plenty of it. We were given a mix of facts about each place we visited, as well as photography advice and help. I would happily travel with Baikal Nature and Pavel again!!
