The lake freezes entirely, except for a small section of 15-20 km at the source of the Angara River. The purity and transparency of the ice is due to the features of the climate and the lake itself, and its thickness reaches 2 meters. The small amount of snow that falls there is blown off and grinding the ice to mirror. This is it, the famous Baikal Ice, natural phenomenon in the heart of Siberia.

Nathan, Australia: What can I saySince the moment i made contact from Australia and was thinking of a new adventure in Russia the communication, the staff, the ease of use, the price all came into play. Out of that i received friendship, laughs, experiences, memories and of course A holiday I will cherish in more ways than one. If you're considering Russia. Yes. Do it. All the way, you will love it. Food, history, people, experiences (and of course a few cheeky drinks) If you're looking for a team that will make it happen. Yes. Discovery Russia is your team, from abroad, back home and on the ground. It's my last day of a 18 day holiday to Russia. The people on tour, the team/guides. I m going to miss them all. Your inclusions will leave you exhausted, but so glad you choose it all. I know I'm coming back
