Did you know that green color on Lithuania's flag stands for forests and the nature of countryside? Want to find out if Lithuanian nature is really that great to end up on a flag? Want to stamp your feet in the geographical center of Europe or admire the labyrinth of 126 lakes?
Say no more – just join our one day tour from Vilnius to Aukštaitija National Park! Let us show you the best Lithuanian countryside with all its nature miracles.
Aukštaitija National Park is the oldest one in Lithuania and located around 100km north from Vilnius. Forests cover most of its territory but there are many lakes (such as Tauragnas, Kretuonas), mounds and hills (Taurapilis, Ladakalnis, etc.) that fulfill the landscape as well. Visiting Auštaitija National Park is a must for every nature lover as flora and fauna here is incredible (hundreds of species of plants, birds, insects, mushrooms..). You are always welcome to join our day tour from Vilnius to this spectacular home of nature's creatures and spend moments you won't forget.
But it is not only about the nature. Most of Lithuanian people still have strong connections to a village and folk culture. The park's territory embraces 80 settlements and villages, some of which have retained not only their old original layout but also archaic wooden buildings. Witness some of the greatest examples and find out how our ancestors built wooden churches without using nails. Your travel partner is still not convinced? Tell him or her, we promise at least 50 amazing Instagram pictures in the paradise of deep, whispering forests and blue lakes! So take a trip outside busy Vilnius city and enjoy your perfect holiday!
This Aukštaitija National Park tour is arranged by our professional Lithuanian guides and for your best and most pleasant experience you need to book it in advance.
