We recommend this route due its high safety – 90% of the trip is made on the bike trail. During the trip you will be able to see the beautiful castles of Panemunė and the landscapes that can be seen from the banks of the Nemunas River. The trip starts at Jurbarkas Manor and runs along the Nemunas Rive rtoRaudonė Town. While riding the bike you will pass three hill forts which back in the Middle Ages together with the other hill forts and former castle fortifications of the Nemunas Valley made up a unified defense line along the Nemunas. You can take a breather and short rest in the Šilinė Village Inn. There you can sample honey with professional beekeepers in a nearby Valley of Honey (Lith. Medaus Slėnis) tourist camping site (advance reservations required). The trip offers the chance to visit the magnificent Panemunė Castle of Renaissance style and then head on along the road snaking up the Nemunas slope. The trip ends at Raudonė Castle with the breathtaking view of the Nemunas from the defense tower.
