Volunteering Russia

Together with my friend I traveled to Russia to volunteer at the Lake Baikal Conservation project. When my friend first told me about this program I had no idea where it was, even more I never heard about Lake Baikal before. Even though I always wanted to travel Russia and this was a great experience.

Being so isolated and so far away from the normal world was really cool and interesting. It also meant that we made a lot of friends and even if I had travelled alone I would have still had a great time.

Lake Baikal is really nice and a beautiful place, There is nice wildlife to see everyone and the Vistas are amazing. The volunteering team is also great and helps you along the way.

I also want to Thank Fronteering, my coordinator Yusuf was really nice and helpful.

Lake Baikal conservation

When I saw this opportunity I knew I had to do this! Lake Baikal has always been such a Magnificent place to me but also kind of unreachable! That was until I saw this program. Thanks Fronteering we for making this possible and making the arrangements.

We had a great group and a great time and I have made so many friends and Memories. I do have to say that the group I suppose can really make or break your stay.

For those who don't know Lake Baikal! Calling it just a lake doesn't do it justice. It is more of a freshwater Ocean including seals! I really like the effort of this program to help set up sustainable tourism as well as conservation works to keep the lake as beautiful and untouched as it is!

I can really recommend this program and I hope it will draw more interests as it is much worth it!

A bit more clarity about what a regular day looks like.
