China, Mongolia and Russia offer wonderful winter experiences when their landscapes are frozen and covered by thick blankets of snow. Experience unforgettable winter activities including dog sledding, snowmobiling, troika rides in Siberia (horse-drawn sleighs), ice skating in Moscow’s Red Square, or even ice diving or ice fishing on Lake Baikal. With fewer tourists about, there is more chance to truly experience the destination. And remember, this region is fully prepared for the weather conditions with the extensive use of central heating often creating almost sub-tropical indoor temperatures. Trains are very often the cosiest places of all, especially the passenger compartments.
