This summer Trenkturas invites hiking enthusiasts to join a unique the Quarry Trek’19 with Gjensidige experience. 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.
