Arriving by helicopter at the shores of the oldest and deepest lake in the world, take in the immensity of this vast lake, a truly mesmerising sight as deep blue ice stretches across the horizon. Settle into your authentic chalet, furnished to bring you the utmost comfort and warmth after your days in the wilderness. This evening, discover the traditional Russian spa with a steamed bath under the serene night sky, lit by the power of the stars.
Meet your excitable huskies as you prepare to explore the immensity of the lake by dog sled. A charming method of travel, you will form a close relationship with your huskies as they carry you across icy paths and through snow-covered trees. As you travel, keep your eyes out for wildlife, including reindeer, wolves, and if you are lucky, bears. Ending at the shore of Lake Baikal, skate across the untouched frozen surface, carving fresh tracks across the glistening ice. Surrounded by nature and devoid of people, ice-skating on the world’s largest natural ice rink is a truly magical experience.
Begin a survival excursion that will have you learning all the necessary skills for surviving in the wild alongside your leading Pelorus guide who is an expert in how to survive in extreme situations. You will traverse the magical landscape on snowmobiles, gliding across ice to reach a secret spot amid the wilderness. The ability to navigate and traverse this vast land is a critical skill that you will learn during your orientation lessons, becoming familiar with various navigation methods without the conventional modern-day maps and compasses, giving you a sense of what it was like for the original inhabitants of this area.
