Highlands (Aukštaitija). Things to do

You can take a dip in the deepest lake in Lithuania and swim across the longest. You can climb up one of the countless hill forts in this region, visit the space station-like observatory, and spend the night with the stars. You can make your way to the big forest and quietly explore its paths, full of the sounds of birds and wild animals, and once you leave you can check out the fantastic church reminiscent of a medieval castle. If you’re up for it, be sure to hug the oak that has been standing for thousands of years – it will give you the energy to continue on your journey full of discoveries and wonders through the towns of Aukštaitija, which are no less impressive than its nature. Can we give you a tip? Take a ride on the narrow-gauge railway.
