Dog sled tour to Circum Baikal Loop


During this tour we'll travel along the ice!

Baikal ice is a special phenomenon – it's very thick up to 1.5 meters and absolutely transparent.

Crystal clear ice under your feet, shimmer of snowy-peaked Sayan mountains and frosty almost tangible winter air will surround you. Only the rhythmic patter of paws packing snow and your breathing break the silence in this winter tale. Such a once-in-a-life experience will always stay in your memory!

Distance covered over the ice of Baikal: 20 km

Period: February – March

Maximum number of guests: 4

Safety: accompaniment of an experienced mush on a snowmobile, satellite mobile connection

Baikal Loop is one of oldest and most beautiful parts of the Trans Siberian Railway. It's righteously regarded "The Golden Buckle of Russian Railway"

At present the Circum Baikal Railway constitutes an integrated historical, architectural and engineering-landscape monument of federal significance.

Thanks to brilliant feat of labor and engineering accomplished by the builders, its structures harmoniously fit with Baikal's harsh and vulnerable landscape.

Baikal in winter seems to be huge and invincible. It's enchanting its guests with its might. Winds blow over Baikal sweeping the snow out of it. And transparent ice seems to be crinkling…

  • Arrival in the tourist camp, which borders on Baikal, from one side, and with the Circum Railway, on the other. Accommodation in warm and cozy wooden huts.
  • Dinner in the camp.

1. all the distances indicated in the program are approximate. Matter-of-fact distance can be up to 15-20% more due to the fact that during the way we should overtake ice hummocks and bypass cracks in the ice.

2. Guests are actively involved in the tour: help cooking, set a dog camp for overnight and get the dogs "properly dressed " (breastbands, felt slippers for dogs, harnesses, etc )
