Siberia in winter is a Fairy tale.… it's hard to find a proper word to describe all the winter beauty and might of this tremendous land! Winter air is fresh and still, pristine Taiga forest stretches far beyond the horizon and ice-covered Baikal shimmers in the sun.
Winter tours at Baikal are for those who prefer adventures and want to get some rest from hustle and bustle of life.
Many people who were at Baikal in summer want to come back in winter. There are a lot of travel-opportunities at Baikal in winter. When the Lake gets frozen, remote areas become accessible and one can travel for days on this immense ice floe on skies, in dog sledges, by snowmobiles, ATVs (All Terrain Vehicle), by airbag boats or on foot.
It's all up to your preferences!
Dog-sled sliding trips
Just imagine yourself traveling through age-old forests, across frozen Baikal, and over snow-covered trails behind a team of dogs running fast and far. Only the whisper of wind in the pines and the rhythmic patter of paws packing snow break the silence in the winter woods - quite a contrast from the normal hustle of everyday life!
You'll definitely have a great journey in the picturesque and mysterious Siberia when the sled is pulled by a team of hearty Husky sled dogs who are having as much fun as you are! They love people, and they love to run and pull.
Once you try it, you'll find that dog sledding is a great experience. Every trip is unique, and since there are many different routes, the opportunities for adventure are endless!
Irkutsk Travel Bureau "Sputnik" is glad to offer you dog-sleding tours of various duration and level of complexity.
