Cancel Submit. The best season is between late January and late March. Our motorcycle tours on the ice take place in this period, ideally in the month of March. At this time, the ice is the thickest and the safest; we can ride a motorcycle on it without any fear.
A Journey in Southern Siberia: The Mongols, Their Religion and Their Myths by Jeremiah Curtin
The thickness of the ice varies between 70cm in the southern part of the lake to more than one meter in the north. The ice surface is not uniform; one can see beautiful transparent ice spaces, swept by the winds and at other places, snow-covered areas and crevasses formed when ice plates collide with each other.
During a motorcycle trip at Lake Baikal in Siberia, you can venture into the southern part of Siberia. A few nomads and breeder families live close to the Lake Baikal. The city of Irkutsk is a city situated on the banks of Angara, at a few kilometres from Baikal.
A journey in Southern Siberia, the Mongols, their religion and their myths
The distance between Irkutsk and Moscow by train is km, that is, around 4 days of travel by the Trans-Siberian Railway. Lake Baikal is km in length and around 80 km in breadth. At the end of winter, a strong movement of ice occurs on this transparent ice pack. Pieces of ice emerge in a chaotic manner, forming small mountains in the form of stalactites and stalagmites. The transparency and the clarity of the ice make it possible to see the dark depths of the lake. The thickness of the ice is difficult to measure with the naked eye. During your motorcycle trip at Lake Baikal in Siberia, you will discover the history and the culture of this isolated region.
The history of Lake Baikal is mixed up with the history of the conquest of Siberia by the Russians. In the 16th century, Siberia became a Russian possession. The deportation of criminals in Siberia started towards the end of the 16th century. Later in the 17th century, the Russian government encouraged immigration of Russian peasants. The influx of migrants led to the construction of the railways used by the famous trans Siberian train today. Over centuries, these lands have been home to several tribes who left their imprints and conferred a spiritual power to the lake.
Around 50 persons live near the lake.
Several animal and vegetal endemic species live in harmony here. Fishing is carried out throughout the year. Its waters have a lot of fish and are reputed for sturgeons, which form the basis of the famous caviar. From the month of November onwards, all the fishing and scientific expedition boats are blocked because of cold weather in the ports established on the Lake Baikal. With the melt-down in May-June, the traffic resumes. Interested in discovering this new adventure by motorcycle? Make sure you don't miss out on the first open departures!
