Expedition to Baikal

The deepest lake in the world - Lake Baikal - attracts tourists with its pristine beauty and majesty. Picturesque nature, rare animals and birds that live in this region, cleanliness - this is what people come here for. Tourists visit the towns located on the lakeside, even in the winter months, to admire the unusual transparent ice with kinks and cracks. The most favorite place for visitors is Listvyanka, where a large number of excursions are offered.

In the spring the sun shines brighter, the days are getting longer, nature wakes up, and Baikal wakes up. Rest on Lake Baikal in the spring in each of the months is different. In early spring, it is still quite frosty here, the lake is covered with ice. The thaw begins in April. It gets warm in May, at the beginning of the month the ice starts to melt. Arriving in the region in the spring months, you can enjoy a quiet, relaxing holiday and see the many attractions, or become a member of active routes.

Baikal in March

Despite the freezing temperatures, it is interesting and fun to relax on Lake Baikal in March. This is the time for skating and skiing, snowmobiling and amphibious boats, participating in a marathon, exploring remarkable places.


The beginning of March on Lake Baikal is characterized by sub-zero temperatures, but it rarely drops below -15. During the day, it is quite comfortable: the bright, warm sun is shining, the average temperature is -5-10 degrees. It is colder at night, down to -15. In March, the settlements on the shores of the lake receive a minimum of precipitation. You need to be prepared for strong cold winds, they are not uncommon here.

The weather on Lake Baikal at the end of March becomes more comfortable, the temperature approaches 0, on some days it can rise to +3 degrees.


The nature in the vicinity of the lake is extraordinary and unique: mountain slopes, meadows, waterfalls, bays and cliffs, caves - all this can be seen here. In March, there is still no greenery, the slopes of the mountains are covered with white caps of snow, the lake itself is under an ice shell. However, tourists love to visit Baikal in March, because it is at this time that you can walk along the ice thickness to the most remote corners of the lake.

Due to the special climate in the region and the high oxygenation of the lake, many representatives of fauna and flora are found only in this place. Some species of fish, such as golomyanka and omul, are found only in the waters of Lake Baikal. The seal is one of the rare animals of the lake, this species of mammals lives in the seas, and it is still unknown how it appeared in the largest lake. Many bird species (waders, swans, golden eagles, eagles) can be seen here.

Baikal blooms in March. Tourists love to come to the lake when spring begins on Lake Baikal. At this time, you can take part in sports festivals, visit spring Olkhon, go fishing, go downhill skiing from steep slopes, see ice-covered caves, become a member of a dog sledding expedition and much more. Holidays on Lake Baikal in March have their admirers.

A trip to Lake Baikal in the spring can be attractive for thrill-seekers: tours on the lake and land on snowmobiles and ATVs will impress lovers of beauty and outdoor activities. For a week of travel on an ATV, you can see the spring Baikal in all its beauty: the Siberian taiga, the depths of the lake under transparent ice, visit several settlements, walk along the pearl of Baikal - Olkhon Island.
