Unique adventure

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.

This is not just a skating trip, it is a type of expedition using special equipment.
This journey might involve difficulties, cold weather conditions.
Special equipment
Skates. You must fit them and try to practice before the departure.
Ski poles (not plastic), long, suitable for skate skiing. The ferrules must be hard metal.
A 30-liter backpack for the down jacket and dinner, so that not to unpack the sledge every time.
A sleeping-bag. The comfort temperature must be -15°C, as it's -30°C at night! If you choose a synthetic bag, first pay attention to the weight (at least 2,000 g).
It is also good to combine two relatively cold sleeping bags, especially down and synthetic.
A bag or a 70-100-liter backpack.
A sleigh with a rope, elastics and shackle.
Hard mountaineering boots which fix the ankle joint well. Double plastic mountaineering boots, for example, is a good idea.
