What people are saying about Vilnius County

Lovely day trip in Aukštaitija Nationalpark

Directly after booking and the official booking confirmation I received another email from Anastassia (the tour company) directly. WOW, that's quite a service!! Asking me, where we should meet, or to pick me up wherever I am. As we are in the first days of June, the high season hasn't started yet. So I was lucky to be the only guest. Andrius, the tour guide picked me up exactly on time in the morning. We have been hiking then for two hours before Andrius prepared a campfire and a perfect picknick for lunch on the shore of a lake. After swimming in the lake we kept on hiking again. It was such a beautiful tour with great views from hills and a watch tower over so many lakes, that I lost track. I can highly recommend this tour for all people who love the nature and love to be outdoors. You can find a detailed report of this tour (in German language) and with a lot of photos on my travel blog: alla-on-tour.de/wandertour-im-aukstaitija-Nationalpark. Ačiū, Andruis, for a great tour and lo

Nice, uncomplicated, spontaneous

We booked the trip in Octobre when it was cold and a bit rainy but nevertheless we really enjoyed the beautiful nature. Anton was a very nice guide and even able to light the fire with wet wood. We asked for veggie food and got delicious veggies and also hot coffee and tea which was perfect for the cold weather. We were accompanied by his young dog and we loved that he asked before if we are ok with dogs. Unfortunately at this time there were no more herbs and berries to explore, but so we had a longer walk and always the decision where we want to go. That's why at the end we actually had a longer trip than planned. We can higly recommend the tour with Anton!

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

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

Having a tour with Anton was just an amazing experience. We came without knowing what to expect and it was far above any other hikes we did. Anton showed us wonderful places, had prepared everything for us and shared stories. What else could we say than time flies when you are hiking in such a beautiful place with such a nice person. We would definitely recommend and do it again :)
