Experience the real Siberian winter!

​Winter is a special time to visit Russia. But we suggest you go even further and to tour Siberia in winter, the magnificent lake Baikal. This small group tour will allow you to experience the best during your visit from 14-20th of February 2022. Accompanied by our local guide during the whole way you will feel welcomed and indulged into the culture.

The proverb says – there is no bad weather, there is bad clothes. Founders of ExploRussia are all native Siberians, so we invite you to take on the proper winter clothes and explore what probably you have never seen before: endless snowy landscapes, famous blue transparent ice of Lake Baikal, silence of nature and sleeping Baikal. These all combined with the real adventure: ride by snowmobiles, Russian UAZ jeeps, ice-skating and trekking.
