Liepkalnis winter amusement park in Vilnius

Liepkalnis, located near the center of Vilnius, becomes a center of attraction in winter, where adrenaline fans gather.

Snowboarders and skiers go down the slopes to improve their snow skills, even if there is no snow in Vilnius itself. A good time is guaranteed for both beginners and professionals. The longest track is 400 m, but try everything.

If you don’t have your own equipment, you can easily rent it on site. And if you’ve never stood on skis or a snowboard, that’s okay – professional instructors will quickly show you all the necessary tricks.

What to do when you are tired? Vilnius airport is located nearby, so Liepkalnis is an ideal place to watch planes. In addition, the mountain offers an impressive panorama, the landscape of the Pavilniai Regional Park, so grab a cup of coffee in the cafe at the top of the mountain and enjoy the views. In the neighboring Ribiškiai landscape reserve, the most fun hills are sledding.

Winter entertainment for the family throughout Lithuania

Ice rink in Lukiškės prison in Vilnius

We want to share wonderful entertainment for children and the whole family. Have you heard about Vilnius skating rink in Lukiškės prison?! We visited a few days ago! We really enjoyed it and will be back again and again!

Our observations and recommendations. A ticket for a child is 4 euros, an adult is 6 euros, you can buy it on the spot or online! We recommend buying online as there are many people and the number of skaters is limited. You secure your seat with an online ticket! The rink is under the roof, so don’t be afraid to travel even in the snow! You can have your own skates or bring them on site. There are definitely small sizes for kids! There are little penguins for children, which help them learn to skate, there are not many of them, so there is a competition for them Inside there are warm toilets, a cafe, so you can freely go inside to warm up!

It’s a wonderful entertainment for children, Matthew is already asking to come back again! Although he skated for the first time, he caught the system very quickly. The Lukiškės prison itself is beautifully decorated, you can feel the festive spirit! The rink is open until February, so be sure to visit. By the way, the first two skating sessions every day are free.

Forged mountain sleds

Kalita mountain is a paradise for winter entertainment in Anykščiai. Perhaps the most famous and popular object here, which awaits the most visitors, is the toboggan run. In a section of almost 500 m, there are various turns, a loop, a springboard, and a merry-go-round. Sleds travel up to 40 km/h, so adrenaline and indelible impressions are guaranteed for both young and old. It’s great that the sled runs all season long. We cannot imagine winter entertainment in Anykščiai without these sledges.

Winter karting in Anykščiai

Many of you have probably tried go-karts. However, did you know that you can try karting on snow at the Anykščiai kartodrome? It sounds interesting. It really is.

Once upon a time in winter

For winter fun or a great family weekend, we suggest you travel to Anykščiai. Here you can take a walk through the beautiful snow-covered treetops on the path of the treetops. Try the entertainment in Kalita Park too. Relax in the evening in a wonderful and cozy spa and stay overnight at the hotel in Nykštos majesty.

Winter events and festivals

1000 lights festival in Rumšiškės

The festival of lanterns and light installations “1000 lights” means even more light and laser compositions, a longer and more impressive trail than last year and a special environment. We guarantee that both children and adults will like it. Our recommendations – buy a ticket online, it will be cheaper! The festival area is large – dress warmly, it will take you at least an hour or two to go around everything! For children, you can take sleds, there are hills and slide down, besides, if they get tired – it will be easier! There are several kiosks selling hot drinks and snacks! (One at the entrance, the other a bit in the middle of the park).

Ice sculptures in Marijampole

The capital of Suvalkija invites you to admire the wonderful ice sculptures Jonas Basanavičius Square. But be quick, as the sculptures will delight visitors as long as the weather permits.

Animal farms in winter

During the winter, it is especially fun to visit animal farms throughout Lithuania.

We really enjoy visiting the alpacas in the winter. We are very happy with the new discovery Tuomi farm in Ukmergė district and Envelopes with Vingios Alpacas in Vilnius.

We often go to Elniai SPA near Kernavė. And if you want a real winter hike – travel to Žibutė meadow farm.
