Siberia

Though it’s true that Siberia really does live up to its reputation of sprawling, barren, freezing tundra, there’s much more to it. From Omst Oblask in the west, to the furthest northern reaches of Taymyria, and as far east as Chita Oblast on the border with China, it covers more than 5.1 million square miles. It has swampy plains, dense taiga thickets and forests, packed with rare and beautiful flora and fauna; it has soaring mountains set with sparkling glacial lakes and pretty cities whose streets are lined with historical architecture.

Such varied terrain is, of course, highly conducive to a huge range of interests and pursuits. The glorious Altai Mountains, for example, as well as being breathtakingly beautiful, are an enduringly popular destination for hiking, trekking and white water rafting. Not forgetting Lake Baikal - the jewel of Siberia - which is one of the deepest and purest lakes in the world. Dotted with islands and fringed with mountains, Baikal is one of Siberia’s most precious treasures and its magical drawing force is not to be resisted.
