  • Personally, the most interesting part for me was crossing the border in the middle of nowhere. You drive along a forest track that is width of the car and then suddenly – border columns! Half-ruined churches and things like that are nice, but it was also a beautiful place by the old railway bridge. There was not any major mud along the way, but in some parts BMW X5 would have not made it through. All in all, I really liked the day, I doubt I would have ever gotten to places like this off my own back.

    Aivars S.
  • We completed the route, thank you, it was compelling! I would have liked it to include less gravel and paved roads, but there were enough tracks where to seek some adventures!

  • We did 3 different routes in three weekends. Today we were already 3 families with 3 cars. We loved it! For the big boys (us – fathers) it was a chance to play in the sand with vehicles (we had fun with our SUVs on the sand hills), kids had their own party and banter. We concluded the day with a fantastic picnic by the lake. I truly recommend it.

  • Beautiful sights, good description. Thank you! I would love to try cross River Lielupe in Jeep with some knowledgeable people.

  • Thank you, it was awesome! Now just must get around to cleaning the car! 🙂

  • Thank you very much for the route! It was an amazing day! Unfortunately, we could not get in Lithuania…. I guess that was the only disappointment in our trip. We will definitely try other routes too!
