Trenkturas invites hiking enthusiasts to join a unique summer “Quarry Trek” for the first time. The hike will take place in the Karpenai, Menciai and Alkiskiai quarrys, which have a striking resemblance to outer space terrains!
Routes lay within the Akmene region limestone deposits, which were formed 300 million years ago and over extensive excavation processes were turned to endless horizons of moon surface and canyon-like landscapes.
Parts of the quarries are still in operation and closed from the public entrance, therefore this is an exclusive opportunity to hike around 40 meter high cliffs. Hikers will be able to observe gigantic 720 ton ‘walking excavator’ that is 75 meters in length, from up close.
The longest route on the trek passes by a pond, so hikers will have the chance to cool down and relax there too.
