For the lake which is 30 million years old these months are not even a second, it is a short moment and it is not possible to catch it. But you will be able to catch it for sure! Join our Olkhon Ice Fest!
Melt the ice with your story
Share your warmest Baikal memories, about your adventures, rest or love story and we will post it in our social nets. Let's warm the ice together Olkhon ice!
Fest organizers say:
We were living in different cities till 2012, when Olkhon gave us an accidental meeting, which became fateful. And in a year, we realized that we wanted to create our future and work only on the shore of Baikal.

We got the idea of the festival from the love to this place, to people living here, from the admiration of nature and traditions of Olkhon region, from the mix of the power and energy of this place.

We hope the festival will give to everybody new emotions, feelings and meetings.
