In response to the threat posed by the spreading virus, we decided to move the Druskininkai hike from March 28th to October 24, 2020. The decision is not easy, but in the current situation, it is inevitable. We have put a lot of heart into organizing the Druskininkai hike and know that you are looking forward to it, so we are sure that the hike will definitely take place!

We will see you all in Druskininkai in the autumn of 24 October 2020! Tickets, as well as selected hotel and spa offers, will be available during the event weekend, but you must contact the hotel administration in person.

And if you still want a refund, you can do it. We understand that it is not always possible to know in advance whether a changed date is right for you, so you will have time until August 31 to return your ticket (this applies to registrations that were made before March 12, inclusive). We ask for your patience – we will announce the refund process until the end of next week on our website.

We have always felt your exceptional support for what we do, and we hope for your understanding.

This season’s new hike – Druskininkai!

It will be the hike where for the first time we will meticulously take care not only of the hiking routes themselves but also the rest after walking long distances. After all, we are coming to the capital of relaxation – Druskininkai! Therefore, not giving you the opportunity to experience health pleasures here is a real sin. So, for special hikers discounts, you will enjoy the spa and sauna experience that you deserve.

Druskininkai is undoubtedly one of the greenest cities in Lithuania, an exclusive health resort and a true oasis of tranquility. It is the natural beauty of this city that we are dedicated to unveiling on this hike. It may sound paradoxical, but it will be a hike-to-nature, almost without leaving the city, because, in a city like Druskininkai, it is certainly possible.

See you in the health oasis of Druskininkai!
