Lake Baikal freezes only during a few months of the year. Karolis chose March for his ride because the worst winter storms have usually passed by then, yet it’s still cold enough to maintain up to 6 feet (2 meters) of ice. “But there are many ice cracks with open water, sometimes every 500 meters.” says Karolis. He chose to not bring camping equipment so he had to make sure he reached the shore before sunset to stay at a hunter hut or guesthouse where he could spend each night.
