Baikal Ice

Looking back on our journey, the most fascinating, challenging and unpredictable aspect of this adventure was the ice of Lake Baikal.

Different weather conditions and snow fall cause unique formations in the ice – from mirror-like black ice to huge spiky sherds, sculpted by the strong Siberian wind, which are very difficult to drive on. You have to be extremely cautious and check the thickness and stability of the ice regularly to make sure it is safe.
