Full description
A perfect tour for nature lovers wanting to get off the beaten tourist track while in Lithuania. A guided hiking tour in Gražutės Regional Park will let you fully appreciate Lithuanian beauty. Hear the whispering wind in the crowns of trees, inhale the tangy smell of pines, give your eyes and mind an opportunity to unwind and refuel. Enjoy the healing powers of the surrounding nature, and experience a deluxe feeling of calmness. Gražutės Regional Park can be reached by train or coach from Vilnius in 2 to 2.5-hours. The tour will start right from the Visaginas Railway Station, which is also a meeting point for this tour. A local guide will lead you on a 10 kilometer hike through dense forests, along beautiful lakes and close to spongy swamps. Expect to hear about local flora and fauna, pick some edible herbs and berries along the way and possibly spot some wildlife. There will also be a stop for lunch, during which your guide will show you how to prepare a traditional lunch over a campfire, encouraging you to learn and take part in cooking. This is also an opportunity to take a refreshing swim in open waters of a wild lake. The tour will end at the same spot as you started, Visaginas Railway Station, from which you can catch a return train to Vilnius. Alternatively, you could plan for some extra time to spend in Visaginas, for example, take an excursion to Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant. Families with children and dogs are welcome on this tour.

The walking tour was absolutely amazing, especially when you wish to take a break from your busy life and enjoy the wild nature. If lucky, you may also see some animals like moose, water snake, squirrel etc. The guide is nice and professional. I missed my train to Visaginas and was late for an hour and half. The guide kindly helped to postpone the tour and picked me up from the bus station (we should have met in the train station) Overall, it was a super nice experience

To test without hesitation

We went on a week-long trip to Latvia Lithuania and in fact we came to this corner so distant but so beautiful, thanks to these hikes organized by Anton. If you like to walk a bit (no need to have a lot of training), if you like nature, silence and discovering the little secrets of the forest, do this experience without hesitation. The guide Anton knows how to adapt, give you the choice of several options if necessary, organizes a meal in very pleasant conditions for cooking over a wood fire and frankly does not count his time to leave you the best memory
