Russia is the ideal destination for travellers who love the outdoors and wilderness. Here are the three best regions for hiking. Each one offers a unique experience with varying levels of difficulty and comfort.
Trips that include hiking can be organised in Altai and around Baikal from the beginning of May until the end of September. Ice-trekking on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal is only possible in February and March.<br> <br> In Kamchatka, the hiking season is short due to the abundant rains. Even at the end of June, many tracks are still covered in snow. The season opens at the beginning of July and lasts until the end of September.
