A fantastic journey done in winter time, full of surprises and (very) off the beaten track. Our guide was great, very knowledgeable, and listened to what we would like the most to do or see! We managed to do two hikes and saw so many different things in just one day. Highlight being the walk to the swamp and an insane statue place. A trip i very strongly recommend.

Fantastic day out! Saw a lot of rural Lithuania which was absolutely stunning. Guide couldn’t have been better, highly recommended.

Great out-of-Vilnius trip

If you want to see more of Lithuania, which is not only Vilnius, this is a great way to see many different things.

Exsile was a wonderful guide and took us to several places that we never would have found on our own. Thank you!

We saw beautiful Lithuanian nature and many other interesting things. The trip was really worth it.
