Lake Baikal is beautiful in every season of the year. We invite you to visit lake Baikal in winter to see picturesque landscapes: tops of mountains covered with snow, boundless white spaces, transparent and clean ice, hummocks, snow-covered forest.
Winter Baikal is a real fairy tale land – transparent ice, bright sunshine from which you can even get a tan, and at the same time freezing temperatures. Each year more and more tourists are visiting Baikal during this period.
The ice of the frozen Lake Baikal is unique as it is absolutely see-through and when you are walking on it you can see several metres down. Some people even experience vertigo. Baikal freezes relatively late and in February lots of ice-hummocks form – massive blocks of ice, some reaching heights of multi-storey buildings.
Lake Baikal is often included as a place everybody should see in their lives, but in fact you should really see it twice, once in summer and once in winter! A trip to this magnificent and mysterious lake will leave you amazed each time you go.
