Escape the crowds and enjoy unique sights of lake Baikal and surroundings

Discover the tranquillity of Baikal nature and winter forest with this amazing tour. Dog-sledding trips can be a highlight of your Baikal visit. Strong and vibrant Kamchatka huskies will pull your sled either on the thickness of Baikal ice or through the endless Siberian taiga forest.

This 1-hour dog-sledding ride starts from the central part of Listvyanka and leads through the Taiga forest along the Krestovka River covering the distance about 17 km. To make sure you enjoy this ride, you will need to be dressed warm enough (warm clothes and gloves) for this encounter with Siberian winter and frosty air.
