Enjoy a private day trip from Vilnius to Merkine, a town in the Dzukija National Park in Lithuania, located at the confluence of the Merkys and Neman rivers. Highlights include: the Pyramid of Merkine, Cepkeliai Marsh, Grutas Park, and Liskiava Monastery.
What to Expect
Once you and your group have been picked up from your accommodation in Vilnius, get ready for a day filled with adventure.
From Vilnius, you will travel to Merkine, where you will head to the Three Crosses area, which acts like a gate leading to a dome and a pyramid. Spend at least a few minutes here, as it's said to have a cleansing effect. Afterwards, proceed to the dome and pyramid and after short meditation, you will continue to the Cepkeliai Marsh.
The Cepkeliai Marsh is the largest swamp in Lithuania; here you will spend some time hiking. Later, you will continue to the Grutas Park, which is an exposition of Soviet statues scattered around the park.
You will have lunch either in Marcinkonys village or Grutas Park. After lunch, you will head to Liskiava Monastery Ensemble and Druskininkai resort town.
In the evening, you will return to Vilnius.
