Full description
Discover Anykščiai town! This day tour starts with a pick-up from your centrally-located Vilnius hotel.  Firstly, visit the highest Lithuanian Church. Explore the Domantai Hill Fortress, which is covered with more than 200,000 crosses, crucifixes, effigies, statues of saints and patriots. Then gain insight into Lithuania's engineering history on the narrow-gauge railway.  Afterwards, go to the Ethnographic Horse Museum and discover traditional crafts. The tour continues with a visit to the famous "devil" stone of Lithuania - Puntukas. Last but not least is an exclusive treetop walking path - the only one to be found in the Baltic countries and even in the Eastern Europe. The path curves 300m through treetops, leading to a 35m high viewing tower, from which you can look over the fabled Anykščai woods, admire bend of Šventoji river and take a walk through the tree canopy.

A great daytrip with a good mix of activities and sites to visit.

This is a great tour to do if you only have limited time yet want to see a bit of everything - from the Hill of Crosses to the canopy tree walk, and culture and history visiting the horse, ethnography and train museums. Our guide Inge was fantastic and imparted a lot of knowledge during the daytrip.

Unique Trip & Pilgrimage Site!

When I saw this trip listed, I knew i had to go! The Hill of Crosses is weird & unique & wonderful! My guide, Andrius, was excellent!! I learned so much about the history of Lithuania & culture along the journey & enjoyed some authentic Lithuanian food (Cepelinai)!! It's worth the trip & if you want to go to the Shrine of our Lady of Siluva where Mary appeared years ago (a Catholic Pilgrimage site) instead, ask in advance because I was able to go there in place of Anyksciai & also visit the Tytuvenai Monastery and the Lyduvenu Dubysa Railway Bridge (longest railway in Lithuania)! Discover Lithuania is the absolute best & you're missing out if you don't use them on your travels!!!
