Our hiking dream that is finally becoming a reality! We have considered the Labanoras forest many times, so the idea of this hike has been maturing in our minds for many years.
We have many epithets for this place: majestic, beautiful, old, dense, rich, with many lakes, fabulous, and insanely mysterious. Did you know that the Labanoras forest combines as many as 105 different forests and about 300 lakes in its territory. The numbers speak for themselves and inspire us to create the hiking routes, which are: 16 km, 25 km and 32 km.

We invite you to put on your hiking boots and explore this seemingly never-ending forest massif. The number one priority is to feel the spirit of the forest and discover the greatest asset of Labanoras – wild forest lakes.
See you in the place where you feel at home while being in nature.

ROUTE INFORMATION

Miško aikštelė prie Žeimenos (GPS: 55.153139, 25.985722)

All routes are radial – start and finish in the same place. No route is suitable for a hike with a stroller.

Pine forest trails starting in Švenčionėliai will lead to Šalnaitis lake. This place is especially popular with the locals, so this fact definitely leads to the conclusion that it is one of the most beautiful lakes in the area. No less impressive is the second lake of this route, Kampuotis, where the high cliffs of the lake will leave an unforgettable impression on you.

Like people, lakes can have a wide variety of features. Hiking this route you will find 6 different lakes, 2 of which are aforementioned Šalnaitis and Kampuotis, and the remaining 4 are extremely different. From Sirgėlis Lake, which invites you for a rejuvenating swim, to Versminis Lake, which has a specific greenish water color, or the swampy Ešerinis Lake, which is deep in the forest.

When was the last time you visited 10 lakes in one day? If you choose this route, you will have a chance to break this record. The Labanoras forest, which covers many water bodies, will reveal all its secrets on this route. All the blue pearls of the hike will be on your list. Siauris, Gaigalinis, Snieginis, Karosinėlis and Gilutis lakes will be the ones that no one but you will see on the hike.
