If you came for a conference, business meeting or just spending  a weekend break with the family or friends, don‘t forget to take your sport clothes.

Vilnius is perfect destination for short rides with mountain bikes.

 

Vilnius is surrounded by hilly parks and forests and suits perfectly for mountain biking. It takes less than 15 minutes by bike to reach great mountain bike trails, you don’t need special transport to get there.

Most of our preferred trails – single tracks in the forests with nice downhills, some parts do have prominent tree roots, no stone trails.

These natural forest trails are not overcrowded. You will have opportunity not only to enjoy riding but also to see spectacular panoramic views on your way.

There are different challenge levels suitable to anyone from beginners to experts.

Our favourite MTB trails with average distance 20-25 km:

  • Pavilnis regional park and Belmontas

The most popular route and  the closest to the city center offers a mixture of hilly trails, flat forest single tracks.

For extreme seekers – it is one of the longest downhill trail in Vilnius, and quite technical.
