This tour is ideal to explore Lithuanian dense forests and pristine ice age lakes. It's a rare opportunity to escape the bustling city and feel the quietness of wild nature, at the same time learning about locals' way of living, their history and culture, as well as picking some edible herbs and berries.
You will also get a chance to learn about and help preparing a traditional lunch over a campfire.
A short 15 minute transfer will take you to a small village Puzinikis, known for its ancient oaks and linden trees, where the tour will start. Right from there we head off to Ladakalnis, the most spectacular place in Ignalina region.
A local guide will lead you on a 10 kilometre hike through dense forests, along beautiful lakes and close to spongy swamps.

In winter, immerse in a snowy forest fairy tale, walk on frozen lakes and enjoy the silence of sleeping nature.
Hearty delicious open fire lunch and herbal tea will be waiting for you in Ladakalnis, where you will have an opportunity to climb the hill and enjoy the stunning view of six lakes located between the forested areas.
After lunch, visit an ancient village Ginučiai, which is famous for its old water-mill, the only one out of six watermills in the park that has preserved its authentic equipment.
Take a final stretch to the point where you started and enjoy the whispering wind in the crowns of tree. The transfer will take you back to Ignalina where you can catch a return train or bus to Vilnius.
