I had a great time going on a mountain bike with Avitalis last week. Given that it was a rainy day, I was a little bit hesitant to bike in the chilly rain, but the sky turned blue and it looked like a good chance to ride. We pedaled through eastern Vilnius, through Uzupis, some overlooks of the city, and then some soft downhills and uphills before ending up in Belmontas. The trip was about 2-2.5 hours.

Avitalis was a very knowledgeable and kind guide, even taking care to lend me his rain jacket and watching out for me as we crossed some busy intersections. Highly recommended and I would have like to do the city tour the next day--unfortunately, it rained even more!

Perfect way to get to know Vilnius
We were lucky, we had the best autumn weather: sunrays through the beautiful red, yellow and brown of the almost falling leaves. It made the city look even lovelier than it does normally. But even without that our tour would’ve been great; it was just the two of us because of low season, and our fantastic guide (whose name I forgot, unfortunately) changed the tour after asking what we were interested in. So we cycled through the gentrifying central station area, Uzupis, great panoramic views and the famous old town. Every stop had a good story and our guide knew a lot of old and more recent history of Lithuania, a country that has had a very turbulent history from the beginning of its existence. Highly recommendable, you’ll see a lot more in a shorter time than just walking around.

Enjoyable sports experience
If you enjoy biking and experiencing the city from a different point of view, this is a great way to start your day. The track is not super exhaustive but you should feel comfortable on a bike and be fit enough because you will be biking uphill for a good while. Just make sure to adjust the saddle height to your height so that you'll feel comfortable while biking. And keep in mind that the emphasis is on the mountain bike part and less on the tour part—there won't be in-depth history lessons and church visits but beautiful landscapes and forest tracks instead. Your tour guide is very friendly and accommodating and speaks good English, which makes the overall experience pleasant.

Highly recommended
Having lived in the Old Town for several years, it was so relieving to find an outlet that allowed me to keep active while still discovering parts of the city I couldn't have imagined existing before Avitalis expertly opened my eyes and kept me wanting more. For any enthusiast of healthy tourism, look no further than here.
