Lake Baikal is a rift lake in Russia, located in southern Siberia, the deepest lake on the planet (1642 m) and the largest freshwater lake by volume in the world. From January to April the lake freezes almost entirely.
By the end of the winter ice thickness reaches 1-2 m. Baikal ice is very transparent, and you can see the icy caves and spatters along the banks.
Skating tour across Lake Baikal is a unique chance to see the beauty of winter Baikal. While tour skating, you will pass about 200 km during 7 days. Cross-country skiing skills are more important here rather than ice skating ones.
Our experienced instructors will conduct special training on the first travelling day, and you will have time to get used to a new skill.
