Motoring Expedition across the largest frozen fresh water lake on the planet

Driving on a lake sounds like an idea that defies all logic. However, in the middle of a cold Siberian winter, it is a totally plausible concept, especially in Lake Baikal. Tucked into the subcontinent of Eastern Siberia, and just north of the Mongolian border, Lake Baikal is abundant with wildlife and vistas of unparalleled beauty. The lake is a place of superlatives: it’s the largest lake by volume in the world; it’s the deepest lake in the world; it’s the world’s oldest lake too. During the brutal Siberian winters the lake freezes completely, making it a perfect adventure playground for us. The ice caves, wild taiga and pristine waters of Lake Baikal is the kind of beauty that’s hard to find anywhere else on the planet. When practically every inch of the globe has been mapped, accessing the Siberian wilderness through our motoring expedition proves – freedom of travel is the true sign of luxury.
