  • Our guide was so helpful. When we told him we had already visited the place he was due to take us, he offered to drive us to a different region. We had an excellent time and booked a second trip to Trakai where we walked on the frozen lake to the castle. The equipment was new and cleverly designed. Our guide grew up in Vilnius and he talked about the safety aspect of snowshoeing and walking on the lakes which made us feel totally safe throughout the whole experience. I would highly recommend this trip.

  • It was a fantastic experience with a great guide. Snowshoes were nothing like I imagined - in old pictures they look a bit like tennis racquets but in fact they have big metal claws underneath which grip into ice, and a plastic rim which sits on top of the snow. With the shoes on, we were able to scramble up a very icy hillside to get a fantastic view of Vilnius from the highest vantage point. Simas our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and told us all the history of Vilnius and the three hills that we climbed. Definitely a high point of our trip!
