Aukstaitija National Park Visitor Centre is suggested as the starting point of the route. At Aukstaitija National Park Visitor center, turn right and head East towards Ignalina. At the end of the village, you will see the beach and parking-lot on the left side of the road. Cross the parking lot and go towards the forest. After crossing the bridge you will arrive at the first information board marking the start of the Meironu nature trail. The trail winds around the slopes and base of a high hill. In the hollows, you can see small lakes, streams, wetlands, small natural meadows flowering on the lakesides, and forest calmly murmuring around. From the floral point of view, Aukstaitija National Park is one of the richest protected areas in Lithuania. It is home for more than a half of Lithuania spontaneous plant species. Along the nature trail some of the protected species are growing. For example, here you can find the biggest planting pace of Marsh helleborine (Epipactis atrorubens) in the Aukstaitija national park. In a middle of a trail, after passing few small wetland lakes you will reach Taramas lake that tells many stories about devils. As a matter of fact, Taraminis is the name which local people used to call devil. There are some information boards introducing local terrain, flora, fauna and other types of nature along this Nature trail. Show more
