Situated in Aukštaitija National Park in the district of Utena, Tauragnas is the deepest lake in Lithuania. Experienced swimmers sometimes take on the challenge of swimming to the peninsula in the middle of the lake to take in Taurapilis – one of the highest hill forts in Lithuania. The shore of the lake is equipped with shelters, outdoor furniture, a beach volleyball court and a playground. Utena District has 185 lakes and 33 supervised swimming areas. Choose whichever one your heart is leaning towards, whether it’s on the shores of the Vyžuonėlis or the Dauniškis in the town of Utena, hidden in a forest, or in one of the many well-maintained rural tourism homesteads.
