    The fact is the thickness of the ice on Lake Baikal reaches 1 meter in February and March. Ice is able to withstand a truck! But there is one place where you can find open water on the Baikal surface - the source of the Angara River. Ice floe with an area of 60-150 square meters will be cut out of the frozen lake by a saw. All the participants embark on the "ship" and rafting begins. There is also a hovercraft as a tugboat and that also transport all the participants to the landing stage when rafting ends.
