Ice of Olkhon Island. Mysterios grottoes

A sacred island lurking in many legends. Fabulous ice grottoes overgrown with icicles and growths, transparent ice plates surrounding the island, have been attracting tourists from all over the country for many years.

In some places, the transparency of Baikal ice can reach 30 meters, which is why you can see the bottom of a mighty lake. A skating trip along the ice surface of Lake Baikal will make your one-day trip unique!
