Varėna lakes

The rivers and lake shores overgrown with wild blueberry bushes in the district of Varėna are a true paradise for nature lovers. You can get to the beach of Lake Žiežulis by taking the lovely educational trail, while others can be reached on sandy forest paths or by taking the road to one of the many well-kept rural homesteads. You’ll have a chance to swim and pick berries, and don’t forget a basket for mushrooms, because this is Dzūkija – famous not only for its 144 lakes, but also for its edible natural riches.
