Day 2 / 22 February
The Maloye sea
After the breakfast you’re going to get on air-cushion vehicles "Hivus" and set off exploring the ice miracles of the Maloye sea gliding on Baikal ice!
The first thing you’re going to do is paying a visit to the buddhist Stupa of Enlightenment on the island of Ogoy. Along the way you’re going to stop at the most exciting spots to view grottoes and landwashes, incredible caves with icy stalactites. Our entire trip is going to be accompanied by the mystical legends and myths about Baikal, its capes and rocks.
In one of rather picturesque spots you’re going to have picnic lunch right on the Baikal ice. After lunch you’re going to have some ice fun — ice skating, ice golf, ice photo shooting session during which you’re going to become your own professional photographers — there can’t be any other way when everything around you is so inspiring? — and ice explorer initiation rite.
Late in the afternoon you’re going to get back to the hotel compound. We’re going to end up the evening sitting round in the cosy warm hall, sharing our impressions of the day, relaxing and having dinner.
