Cross-country Skiing in Siberia Forest – 2 days / 1 nights (3 days / 2 nights)
This is a two day ski tour for those who’d like to make a break in rushing around city centers, railway stations, museums etc. This trip will give you a proper chance to concentrate on yourself and nature in the middle of solemn Siberian winter forest, see the lifestyle of a small Russian village in the middle of nowhere. The settlement of about 30 houses is situated at the edge of immense forest 1.5 hour by local train from Irkutsk. Several nice ski paths start here to get you to nice pine tree forest with a perfect view around, make you confused reading the ornament of animal’s prints, lead to the solitude hunter’s hut.
