Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Trakai used to be a medieval residence of Lithuanian Grand Dukes. Once a significant and powerful town, nowadays Trakai is enjoying tranquillity. The town is located next to Vilnius (about 25 km) and surrounded by several beautiful lakes. The main attraction is the Island castle which was initiated by Lithuanian Grand Duke Kęstutis in 14th century, finished and mostly used as a residence by his son Grand Duke Vytautas in the first half of 15th century. The picturesque Užutrakis manor house and park by French landscape architect Édouard François André is another must visit point on the shore of Lake Galvė. Trakai is also famous for its traditional Karaites community which was brought here from Crimea by Vytautas and settled here in the 15th century. All that and also ruins of the Peninsular castle, small islands and tranquillity of Lake Skaistis you will be able to see and experience while taking a kayak tour on the lakes around Trakai.

    The kayaking route takes you on 3 interconnected lakes. The distance is about 11/8/6 km which makes 3/2/1,5 hours of active paddling. 

    The tour is safe and suitable for beginners. Swimming skills are essential and some paddling experience would be useful too (but not necessary). The lakes around Trakai are usually very calm. However the route can change depending on weather conditions.

    Really enjoyed our day on the lakes with Tomas. The scenery is amazing, and there are plenty of stops along the way to view the castle, and other manors. The chance to stop for a swim was great too.
